Pros: weekends and holidays off
Cons: no opportunities for advancement, some poor management, expensive benefits, no raises, poor communication, extremely profit driven
I was with Simonmed for several years. This company is very focused on profit. Employees do not receive annual reviews or raises. Simonmed does offer health benefits at a decent rate to employees, but it is very expensive to insure family members. There is little to no opportunity for career advancement. I worked with many people that were skilled, nice, and did a wonderful job (all were definitely deserving of raises..none ever received one). A majority of those employed by Simonmed are dissatisfied with how they are treated by management and the company in general. The overall office moral is low and generally negative. Simonmed could be a wonderful place to work and most likely improve patient satisfaction if they valued their employees more. Happy employees create a better patient experience. It's not the absolute worst place to work, but far from the best. I recommend it only as a place to work while you are looking for another job.
