Plan to be put down all the time unless you are a favorite.
Patient Account Representative (Former Employee), Downers Grove, IL – September 15, 2015
Pros: Flexible Hours
Cons: Management has all these rules, policies, etc. You need a secretary to remember them all. There is even a policy on how you should breathe.
Like the previous review. This job is a prison sentence. You will get warnings if you talk too much. So do not talk to your co workers. You can if you are close to your Team Lead and have kids or have – more... something in common. Then you wont get in trouble.Take good notes, because Management will try to say that you were not told to do something in this manner. Then once you show proof, Management will try to kiss your butt to make it better. Also, the pay is very poor. You could get paid more waiting tables. – less
Utilization Management Referral Specialist (Current Employee), Downers Grove, IL – September 8, 2015
Great workplace in regards to co-workers. I feel like I have grown as an individual due to the amount of information I learn from my fellow co-workers. We learn from one another on a day to day basis, which makes the workplace a fun/productive place to be.
PACU RN (Former Employee), Lombard ASC – August 25, 2015
Cons: Everything about the ASC
Management is the worst I have ever experienced. Manager of PACU has a hard time trying to help with patients when needed and has no filter with employee's privacy. Manager of facility has no tact when – more... dealing with the nurses but is sweet and accommodating to the physicians. They except the employees to live, breath and die for this ASC. The pay is low, hours unreasonable, and benefits are poor. The coworkers are very clique', some you have a difficult time knowing if they are friend or foe (but not all). Stay away!. – less
withheld (Current Employee), Downers Grove, IL – August 22, 2015
Pros: If you can survive this you can survve anything
This is a terrible place to work. They can sound very caring and supportive, but they are not. Production expectations are unrealistic and no one knows how they determine these numbers. They inform – more... you of your prior month numbers at least 1 1/2 weeks into the next month and then they tell you if you don't meet current production standards they will need to let you go. not good. At first you wonder what's going on and could it be you, even though you've always excelled at previous jobs, but then you look around and the dept has lost 1/2 of the employees within a 6 month period; many of whom have 7-12 years working there. Management style is condescending . Training is poor and you need to evaluate everything they tell you because it very possibly is wrong and then they'll say they never said that – less
worker (Former Employee), dowers grove – July 24, 2015
I am a person who takes pride in doing a good job, I have worked for large companies and have always strived in my job but this company looks down on you if you do a good job, they seriously lack in management – more... and they promote people who are lacking in any type of management skills or people skill. The whole company is out to make a ton of money and do not care about employees or the patients. I would never work for this company again no matter what. I would live out of a box before before I would work for this company. Please be aware that they lie during the interview and change all the job details to there advantage, – less
Registered Medical Assistant (Current Employee), Glen Ellyn, IL – June 10, 2015
My typical day starts with getting the rooms, the doctors supplies and my charts ready for the day. In pediatrics, especially during the summer, I do mostly check ups, in the winter its mostly sick visits. – more... I call the patient back and begin by getting vitals and obtaining any tests necessary. In our department we rely heavily on team work. MA's and nurses have their own role and duties but we all pitch in to help make the unit run smoothly. The managers are all very approachable and keep an open door policy so its always easy to talk to them. The hardest and most enjoyable part of my job is the kids. There are a lot of little personalities that walk through that door, some kids are happy to be at the doctors office and some are not. I feel truly rewarded when we are able to turn the unhappy kids into happy kids, sick kids into healthy kids and unhappy parents into happy parents that have actually enjoyed bringing their children to the doctors office. I really do enjoy my job and role in the pediatric department. The reason I'm choosing to look at other positions is because I've been in the same department since I graduated from school and I feel like its time to expand myself and my knowledge as a professional. – less
Management (Former Employee), Downers Grove, IL – April 21, 2015
Cons: No respect for employees
This was a horrible place to work for; you are paid very low and never acknowledged for the hard work you do. Employees are given very low raises yet cuts are never made to the salaries of those in the – more... C suite. No women have high positions and productivity standards are unrealistic. The motto is "we care for you" but they do not care for their employees. All they want to do is get bigger and bigger and the phone systems are horrible because they are too big. I was told I would be on hold for a minute trying to get a referral after 35 minutes I hung up. – less

Around 6 years of experience in analyzing, designing, tuning, and developing Business Intelligence (BI) database applications using MS SQL Server 2012/2008R2/2008, SQL Server Integration, Reporting and – more... Analysis Services in Finance, Banking, and Healthcare domains.

Adm/Recptionist (Former Employee), Downers Grove – April 7, 2015
Pros: Suitable location and clean office
Cons: Training and courtesy was horrible
I was so excited when I got the call for the position and was looking forward to learning their new system I went in with a positive attitude and left with my sanity. This company looks good on the outside, – more... however once in, it’s a mess. My best suggestion to all seeking employment especially for this Toxic company read two books it will enlighten your next search. 1) RISING ABOVE A TOXIC WORKPLACE. 2) THE NARCISSISM EPIDEMIC .
There were so many red flags I tried to justify from the interview to the orientation. The orientation is filled with promises and false hope, explaining what a great company it is to work for. Wishing you good luck and stating to you that you have 90 days to learn the job. Once you’re assigned to an office all the lies and deceptions seem to snake in. I consider myself an intelligent person who does not care to play games. It felt like I was working in a reality show for fifth grade chatty girls. No matter hard you tried to do your best they always seem to find fault never looking for the good. The only way to clean up there mess is to look within. – less
Certified Medical Assistant for OB/GYN Doctor's (Current Employee), Glen Ellyn – April 2, 2015
Pros: Learing new procedures
Cons: Working for many Doctor's that want something different
My typical day consists of rooming patients taking vitals and enter information into Epic computer system. I am very personable with the patients to make them comfortable with the doctors office. I work – more... well with the staff and clean and stock rooms after use. The hardest part of my job is working for 9 Doctor's who want something different. I love working with the patients and learning new procedures that some of the Doctor's are training me on. – less
DMG Servant (Current Employee), many locations the same – March 31, 2015
Cons: sooo many
This is the worst company I have every been employeed by. The pay is very low, and the medical benefits are terrible. Very high deductible and we can only go to DMG doctors. Ridiculous productivity – more... expectations. I literally run all day from patient to patient with not a moment to even stop and use the bathroom! Quality of patient care suffers terribly due to greed for money and constantly overscheduling patients. If I were a patient I would not return becsuse they are not given fair time and attention due to DMGs policy of overscheduling. This greatly lowers qulity of patient care. So many employees feel used and abused. Suggestion to improve employee and patient satisfaction, don't treat employees like machines. Very greedy organization. They care more abut money than patients or employees. Very high rate of turnover – less
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Lisle, IL – March 28, 2015
It is a call center so you come in clock in and take you calls. I have learned so much about the medical field and billing and coding.Management is awesome very understanding and helpful. Co-workers are amazing.The hardest part of the job is confirming you did all the HIPPA laws.The most enjoyable part is help patients with insurance issue and getting them to pay what they should.
Patient accounts (Current Employee), Downers grove – March 18, 2015
Pros: work hours
I love the people I work with, however, You are made to feel like you are in prison. Not allowed to wear lotions, colognes. Cannot talk to your coworkers. If you excel at something you are given way more work than a person that makes the same amount of money you do. They should make the person that isn't pulling their weight to step it up or reward the people that excel.
Physician violated a patient's privacy & I requested a transfer as I did not agree with the physician's behavior. He was notorious for getting staff fired but as he brought in the bulk of money for the – more... establishment HR did not look into countless complaints made by staff. The department I was transferred to was not completely tolerant of my transfer as they were already overstaffed and the staff thought I was a thin Puerto Rican for having a family. During my high risk pregnancy management would staff me at inconsiderate hours so I would have to quit. I was terminated as I was placed on complete bed rest and delivered prematurely.
The work flow was easy and I enjoyed educating patients. – less
Document Management Technician (Current Employee), Downers Grove, IL – January 12, 2015
I have exceeded in productivity in the work place and want to excel in other aspects of the health field industry. I have learned that the quality and not the quantity is what can be an issue. The goal of protecting and respecting the privacies of ones medical history.
Receptionist (Former Employee), Every Location – January 8, 2015
Pros: once you finally left work you were done for the day.
DuPage Medical is an awful place to work. The company has grown too quickly for upper level management to handle, which has compromised the quality of care given. Patients would complain often about this. Expect to be worked to the bone for a 17 cent raise and do not expect to move up within the company. DuPage Medical Group: We Don't Care for You, Just for Your Money.
