Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – November 10, 2014
I enjoyed the 3 departments I worked in for it was very informational and most of the employees were great to work with. I learned a lot with Sleep Apnea and then onto the GI department. I came from General Practice so was trained for most of everything. The toughest part of the job was getting to know how the software worked and the most enjoyable – more... for me was working with all the Patients and making them feel cared for. – less
Radiology Technologist (Former Employee), Madison Street Clinic Seattle, WA – September 20, 2014
Cons: management, human resources, lack of quality leadership
I worked at the Polyclinic for one year as a Radiology Technologist and would give them maybe 1 star, only because of the good pay.
Management is subpar and unqualified to say the least, especially in the Radiology Department at the Madison street clinic.
In my year working there I had ZERO reviews by my Supervisor, that is until I asked for my employee – more... file the day after they "decided to move in a different direction" with my employment. Upon asking for my Employee File I conveniently had a review that wasn't signed by me or something that was discussed with me by my supervisor. Upon asking HR where it came from and why it was in my file I was told it was "common practice" for management at the Polyclinic to not review an employees "work reviews" with that employee! Yes, you read that last sentence correct. Not only did they not review my review with me they had zero reason to let me go. This place is a good example of why people should join UNIONS if possible.
HR lets leadership do what they want regardless of employment laws, then lies to you when questioning them. DO NOT WORK HERE! – less
Payment Processor (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – July 25, 2014
Pros: worked with friends
Cons: took $1 pay away when i moved from a psr to the business office
they just seamed to have no budget and I was working first as a PSR but transferred to the business office to post payments they actually took money away from me when I transferred to the business office
Cons: low pay, expensive parking, hostile work environment, unprofessionalism throughout the organization
STAY AWAY!! This company does not value their employees at all and you can tell by the way that the management treats those in lower working positions. The Doctors are extremely disrespectful to their co-workers including (MA's, RN's and PSR's) and unfortunately, this type of behavior is common throughout the clinic. The management seems to be aware – more... of the verbal abuse that some of the Doctors inflict upon their employees, but are uninterested in solving these issues. If you are ok with being degraded and spoken to in a condescending manner on a daily basis, then Polyclinic is the place for YOU! This was by far, the most unprofessional organization that I have ever worked for. – less
Refund Specialist (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – March 9, 2014
Pros: bus pass, medical & dental insurance, 401 k
Cons: day goes by to fast!
Your day would fly by easy with the work I learned that not all employees learn at the same level so I needed to ask what they understood about the process of refunds. Management was the BEST! My supervisor would give me many special projects due to my abilty to compleate them in a timely manner. Plus her door was always open.....I believe open communication – more... is a must. – less
Medical Assistant Vascular Surgery (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – January 16, 2014
I have worked in Vascular Surgery for over 2 years. Working side by side with outstanding surgeons, I was able to become proficient in my line of work. I assisted in minor procedures in clinic like, Laser ablations, Microphlebectomys, Fistulograms, Sclerotherapy and Catheter removals. My duties consisted of prepping sterile fields, pre procedure and – more... post procedure instructions, wound care, and placing surgery orders. I enjoyed working with the team that I had, and wonderful surgeons. I am ready to take my knowledge and challenge even more in the other specialty fields. I am always ready to learn and perform twice as much. – less
employee (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – January 3, 2014
Pros: getting paid
Cons: disorganized mayhem
When I first read the reviews on Glassdoor I found what was like my experience and what I heard from others. The reviews here look like the management "team" was tasked with writing positive reviews so fewer potential recruits run the other way. Good luck if something is broken as you may end up dealing with the guy that will give an earful of attitude
Patient Services Representative (PSR) (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – September 30, 2013
Pros: work environment, management, benefits, pay, training, hr support
I really enjoyed working for The Polyclinic and if I still lived there I would have continued with them. They have room for growth, if you want to advance. There are over 150 doctors and various specialties where you can learn. The people there overall were very nice and I really liked working with them, and the pay is competitive for the area with – more... good benefits. – less
A very great place to work, people connections, Doctors are great.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – August 6, 2013
I enjoyed my time at The PolyClinic, if I would move back to Washington, I would like to go back there. I worked with an amazing group of Doctors. People that I worked with are top notch, and I consider them all friends.
Operations Manager, Diagnostic Imaging (Current Employee), Seattle WA – April 22, 2013
Pros: pay, bonuses, overall atmosphere
Cons: lack of communicaton from administration to direct reports
I over see the daily operations working closley with Radiologist and technical staff to assure each patients experience is a positive one. I monitor financial and operational variance reports, hire staff when necessary, etc. I enjoy the staff at The Polycinic, and have learned a great deal about an organization such as this one, as all of my prior experience – more... has been in a hosptial setting. The hardest part of the job is when I have to dicipline a staff member either verbally or in writing. I would prefer to discuss their qualities rather than items they need to work on. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I have an opportunity to help someone, be it answering the phone and taking patient information down so we can mail a CD to another provider, or allowing a staff member time off. – less
Former Polyclinic Employee (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – March 20, 2013
Pros: employees want very much to have improvements within the environment made
Cons: too many to list in complete detail
Lack of management skill and processes make this environment less than desirable. Poor communication throughout all levels of the organization. Lack of keeping up with outside market in terms of technology and business processes. Overall training needs to happen for management as well as staff to improve the business. Employees are withdrawn and disconnected – more... from other staff members due to dissatisfaction with job and management. – less
Improved my skill in Phlebotomy and my inter-relationship with people in all walks of life
Phlebotomist (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – March 20, 2013
Pros: can worked overtime if needed.
Cons: short lunch hours if needed
Come to work early and greeted patients and tried to help them even it was not time for me to work. I had the best attendance in the compay, never called in sick and always on time for work. The hardest part is when patient come in for blood work but the doctor did have any order or lab work so we just draw the tubes that would cover for possible tests – more... the doctor needed for that patient. Most enjoyable part is when no errors and mistake for that day and job well done for that specific day. – less
