Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – April 1, 2017
Pros: 1. You feel like you get to make a difference in the lives of patients. 2. The providers are knowledgeable and kind. 3. Free lunches catered in most days from drug reps. 4. Flexible work schedules. 5. Half-Day Fridays for most people.
Cons: 1. Underpaid employees. Very rare and minimal salary increases. 2. The company offers benefits but they are significantly substandard. 3. Some employees do minimal work while others are significantly overworked. 4. 401k account charges more in fees than what you actually see in returns. 5. Policies are put in place by administration that rarely work side-by-side with the staff that are on the floor.
The work shift typically starts at 8:30PM, but occasionally there are early arrivals. Despite learning much of my Job description from school, I got a lot of hands on experience with patients who have neurological disorders that require more advanced treatment modalities such as Bilevel (S) and Bilevel (S/T). Management is very understanding and will allow you to learn from mistakes you may make. One of the most important aspects required for this line of work is time management. My favorite part of the job is interacting with patients and seeing how rested they look and feel after a good night of therapeutic titration study.
Friendly staff, 401k benefits, only 2 patients per technician
the servers for the software you write your notes in goes down from 1:30AM - 3:00AM
