Office Manager-Department of Emergency Medicine (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 16, 2018
As a member of the administrative team in emergency medicine, I have been positioned to learn so much about the business of healthcare.
Because the emergency department is the "gateway" to many services for patients, I have had the opportunity to work with other ancillary services as well as executive leadership to establish care and/or to assist in resolving patient-related issues.
My administrative leadership team has been very supportive in allowing me the autonomy to handle issues as they arrive and they have come to know me and rely on me as the "go-to" person if there are specific needs within the department.
I have had a very satisfying career here and I look forward in great expectation for what is to come.
Convenient parking, reduced meals, and discounts on services
Respiratory Therapist Sr (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 12, 2018
I was able to work with pediatric patients and their families and help with lung conditions. I felt appreciated and valued as an employee. Being able to work closely with doctors to help these patients was very rewarding.
Assistant Director (Former Employee) – Fulton County, GA – July 11, 2018
management really needs to change here. Advancement was difficult if not impossible! absolutely no tolerance for new ideas for improvement. Frustrating environment with constant complaining. Not for me.
Emory is a great place to learn new and exciting treatments for paitents.
LPN Transplant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA 30322 – July 7, 2018
At Emory you work with a diversity of patients and learn something new every minute of the day. Emory has the most qualified training program for new LPN's and teaches new techniques quite often. Working with the patients is the most rewarding experience you can get working for Emory the most difficult thing is know when patient's are on a long list to receive life changing treatments. But being their for the patients every step of the way is rewarding enough to be a nurse.
learning new treatments every day
Non caring bosses when family members are fighting for their live for the employees
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 2, 2018
I think Emory has the "bones" to become a great place to work. However, low salaries and lack of proper management training seems to be their current downfall. Salaries are almost laughable, their is not a lot of opportunity for upward mobility and worst of all, most of the managers seem to have no clue how to manage large teams of staff with differing personalities. Between those factors and EXTREME "micro-management", it is not the greatest environment to work in. They claim to have an open-door policy, but employees that voice concerns of offer suggestions are often singled out as "problem employees" and therefore, there is a revolving door of staff. I have literally never seen such high turnover rates in any other place I have worked. Emory likes to lean on their "great benefits" but compared to other places I have worked, they are mediocre at best.
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 29, 2018
The most enjoyable part of the job was the patients. I constantly felt like I was being told what I could NOT do, regardless of training. There was no chance for advancement, and it seemed like many employees were just over the entire healthcare field. Several PA's would show absolute no interest in patients, or that they were running an hour or two behind on their patients.
I had what I thought was good care at this facility many years ago, hence prompting my desire to work there. But it felt like a soul suck at times, from the long commute, to the lackadaisical approach from management.
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 28, 2018
The corporate culture, communication, training, and collaboration are abysmal. They can't keep up with their growth and have promoted people that are unqualified and won't take accountability or try to help with anything (because they don't know what they're doing). There is a severe lack of innovation.
Practice Manager (Former Employee) – Suwanee, GA – June 26, 2018
a typical day, was very busy. dealing with customer complaints often, reports, payroll, hours, accts receivables, employee management, solving problems on the fly. We all worked well together. I learned a great deal from my superviso and was very happy to have the opportunity to work with her. The hardest part of the job was managing people. That is also the most stressful part of the job which is why I am no longer interested in management. The most enjoyable part was all the patients I got close to and the wonderful physician's i had the pleasure of working with.
High volume practice and i love the relationship with the patients
Patient Service Coordinator/Referral Coordinator (Former Employee) – Stockbridge, GA – June 21, 2018
Each day was different according to staff and I learned to solve my own problems with out the manager. all staff worked well with each other and closing time was to hardest because patient still need to be seen. I love my providers
Nurse Clinician III (Current Employee) – Decatur, GA – June 20, 2018
Management provides equal opportunity to advance through the system. The culture is very diverse and I never experienced any discrimination. The workload is heavy but it is nothing that an experienced nurse wouldn't be able to handle. Patient safety and satisfaction is a priority for this hospital. Overall, Emory is a wonderful institution to work for.
