Typical work day for me is getting in early. I like to get things ready to start the day(draw up injections, exam rooms stocked and ready, take care of any messages. Management says a lot of things but nothing seems to get done. I enjoy my coworkers.Hardest thing about my job is trying to do the right thing for the patient and not getting any help from management. Most enjoyable thing about my job is orthopedics. I typically enjoy the patients.
Former Supervisor (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 20, 2016
This is the worst job experience I've ever had in my entire life. If I could have given zero stars, I would have. If upper level management exists, other than demanding the doctors to see a million patients and order a million urine drug screens so they can all get rich quickly, they clearly have no clue how to run a company. I mean, only the dumb survive in this company. Anyone with even a drop of intelligence is chased away with stupidity and white trash management. They talk down to you, there is always drama, the computers go out at least 1-2 times a month and there is never a back-up plan. The staff turns over faster than a Burger King. If you're a moron, this job is great for you. If not, seriously, don't bother. It's a waste of time and energy. Go somewhere you won't be just a number. There is nowhere to go with this company. i can't see how this company has even survived this long.
Provider (Former Employee) – Melbourne, FL – April 26, 2016
Hands down the most poorly managed institution I have come in contact with. Understand that their singular goal is maximum revenue. While I can respect that revenue and profit are vital for a company's survival, I cannot respect their doing it at the cost of patient safety and satisfaction. There is zero respect or even concern for the patient or the employee. This company sells a bill of goods but does nothing to uphold the promises once you are theirs. The manager was an utter joke and had no place in any type of oversight of processes or management of a staff. The lies are rampant and no trust can be established. My warning is simply BEWARE!
patient (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – April 2, 2016
I am unfortunately a patient of Surgery Partners. This company came into the Sarasota and Manatee county area and bought out existing practices. The new doctors are good, but the management seems to be an issue. The doctors state that they have no control of what happens in the building and with the staff. I can clearly tell since the staff does not appear to be happy. I have known some of these people for years and it is a shame that they are not treated better. There clearly is a problem as you can see it on their faces and demeanor. I have heard of similar circumstances from a friend that is a patient at a different location. Unfortunately, they own most practices in the area!
Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – March 25, 2016
They purchased several physician offices in Sarasota and the Management is terrible, she talks to employees with severe disrespect, micro manages the leaders and breaks down staff mentally, there is no support from HR at all and the upper management do nothing to look in to situations. NO overtime allowed but your supposed to be able to do ten different jobs. If your not one of her pets or snitches she treats you like garbage.
I have been very disappointed with surgery partners. Bringing in more doctors and keeping them happy is always the game. After working for them for years, also helping out at 4 of their centers, they could care less for my loyality. I got so tired of crnas and doctors always getting the free lunch while the rest of us could barely get a break. When u did get a break, there was no place to sit for all the reps taking up our place to break in. No opportunity for advancement.
This company has taken the "care" out of patient care. They want staff to work harder quicker and leaner in order to get maximum profit for minimum expenditures. It always seems like we are rushing to get patients ready so the docs dont have to wait and it is compromising patient care. They have cut amount of staff and want you to do 10 different jobs at once. The pay is horrible, there are no raises to speak of,in my 5 years of employment my salary went up 10 cents an hour. Communication is extremely poor as are the working conditions. We have to take our breaks sitting in a corner behind a curtain with patients right behind you. There is no room for advancement and continuing education is not high on their priority list.
Opthalmic Technician (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 13, 2015
This is the first time I can actually say that I hated a job. People with no experience will get paid more than those with experience. Will add as many as 4or more jobs to your current duties for the same pay. I never received 40hrs. This place is so unorganized and everyone is stressed out. This job will change your personality. Don't work here, run!
barely get lunch, talk to you like youre not worthy, stressful environment
Specialist (Former Employee) – North Providence, RI – April 30, 2015
It is very difficult to work with certain people in management. It was like a revolving door in this office. We never had a manager for more than 3 months. Corporate employees were always coming into our office changing procedures. It was a very difficult place to work for; favoritism occurs constantly.
you don't want to work there is all I can say, bad management, no support, blaming game all day long. Domino effects starts from the top and trickles down to nothing getting done. Manager in turn blames everyone, while she's in her office all day long. Was Not impressed at all.
collector (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – April 18, 2015
i witnessed intimidation from a (SINGLE manager) with her subordinates. The manager in charge, provides little to almost no training of the staff, not very pleasant to hear everyone's frustrations and I don't blame them. The employees aren't given a job description and the training is basically pretty bad considering most the folks working there don't have ASC background. To make matters worse, you have an employee who's not able to give you answers, training new hire, while manager sits in her office all day. The disposition isn't very pleasant and the collections team really doesn't respect or has the motivation since the person running the show is on a serious power trip. Almost comes across as a new manager who needs training as some of the information relayed by her is absolutely inaccurate cauing countless hours in the department of everyone trying to figure out balancing with no support from the department leader. Other than the single individual I'm referring to, everyone seems nice, and respectful, beautiful office space and comfortable setting. Office executives all very pleasant individuals.
Executives have Open door policy to share concerns
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Orange City – February 14, 2015
This place is like train station. Nurses which are driving force most of their time use for stickering charts, filling regulatory paperworks, making copies and other non nursing administrative work. Manager is CEO puppet who is basically slave driver yelling at you if something goes wrong. They trying hard to squeeze every penny out of you by making you do several jobs at the same time and paying you for only one so nothing ever gets done. Patients care is jeopardized on daily basis. I would strongly not recommend to work here.
Ophthalmic Technician (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 4, 2015
This place is GREAT at selling you dreams. They tell you that you'll work 40 hours but never will get that. You'll be lucky if you even get close to it. Told me that I had an opportunity to grow by working there but I have been in the same position with the same little pay. They want you to work you butt off and do multiple jobs but are not willing to give you a raise. Talk to you like your an child and not an adult. The doctor's, resident doctor's, and students are all great to work with, but the management is not professional at all. If you tell them something the whole office will know you said it!!! Very high turn over rate for technician's most people stay a year or less.
Ophthalmic Technician (Former Employee) – Atlanta, Ga – February 1, 2015
This company has a high turn over rate. No one usually stays over a year unless in AR. Management is a joke, treat and speak to you as your unworthy. Pay is low and expects you to do three people job. Only guarantee 30 hrs, only had x40 hrs twice in a year and half. The doctors are awesome and student interns, I must say!! Unless you have no other choice, keep it moving!!
benefits and awesome doctors
stressful environment, pay, no room for advacement, unorganized, poor management
The staff is great. We are able to take exceptional care of patients. The doctors and managers are good to the staff and patients. It is a little far from where I live and I am unable to get to many hours there. Other than that I love working at this facility.
