Great place to work
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) –  Saint Louis, MOAugust 22, 2019
The people are amazing and the patients are as well. You really become a family. The pay could be a little better and the raises need some work but overall great experience.

Amazing Journey
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIAugust 6, 2019
I am happy to be a part of such a great and amazing team. This company has gone through changes and big growth, but it has always been a positive experience. I have never been supported by management like I am here. It makes it easy and enjoyable to come to work every day! I would highly recommend you become part of our family!

Horrible-stay away
RN - call center (Former Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIJuly 31, 2019
Everything they said or agreed to in the interview process was a lie. Even when you are an intelligent RN, they treat you like a grade schooler. You read from a script. You can never ever use your nursing judgement. During the interview, They’ll agree to work around commitments you have and then WON’T once you start. Management is sooooo extremely rude and treat staff like garbage!
Pros
Hours, beautiful building (Manitowoc)
Cons
Management is HORRIBLE- and LIE so much

Call Center Representative (Current Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIJuly 30, 2019
I have experienced different organization structures in past employment- Forefront is truly open to new ideas, advancement and positivity. Employees get benefits beyond healthcare that I never had at other jobs. Management is understanding to life work balance but looks for open communication- great experience with this. A career is all about the effort you put in it and I’m loving it!

Completely toxic
Central scheduler (Former Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIJuly 16, 2019
This office is so micromanaged. The atmosphere is cold. Staff is not allowed to ask another employee, unless they are a team lead, ANY questions. If you are caught asking another employee you will be reprimanded. Often times the leads are not even available so you sit and make patients wait until you get an answer from a lead. Every single lead there with the exception of 2 had a superiority complex and made other staff feel like peons. I absolutely hated working there but I did enjoy my job. No one should have to be afraid to go to work. horrible
Pros
Benefit package
Cons
Cold work environment. Micromanaged.

Very poor management..
LPN/Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  East Lansing, MI Coolidge RdJuly 7, 2019
I have never worked in a more negative, degrading environment, & in my opinion this stems right from the manager. There is a lot of gossiping & bullying which i also believe stems from managment; in any office there is suppose to be a certain level of professionalism Forefront is definitely missing it.
U work a 9+ hr day 100% on your feet (not allowed to sit EVER) Manager does not allow breaks or a lunch.
2 of the Drs are great Dermatologist 1 is a mohs surgeon & there is well 1 PA. If u are looking for a great positive environment to work in where u will not be talked down to, degraded or made fun of this is not the office for you.
Pros
Nice Doctors
Cons
Poor management, No breaks or lunches

Do not work here
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Carmel, INJuly 3, 2019
Please make sure you read all the comments, I agree with 95% of them. Horrible company to work for, only thing they care about is the money they bring in and more patients to push through the door. Management is so bad it's a joke to the employees under them.

Horrible management
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIJune 27, 2019
The Team “leads” are horrendous. They treat you like you’re stupid and talk down to you which is very unprofessional. They are constantly conversing between themselves throughout the day which makes it very hard to focus when you sit so close to them. They are not very approachable as far as asking questions.

Stressful and draining...
MA (Former Employee) –  AlabamaJune 11, 2019
We were bought by this HUGE company a few years ago. Wow! Talk about a big difference. Our clinic went from SO happy to SOOOO miserable - real fast! If you don't mind being just another number, then you'll do just fine here. Turnover is really bad.
Pros
My coworkers
Cons
Management FOR SURE!

Central Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIJune 6, 2019
Workplace culture was really good, there are a lot of really nice people who work there. Sometimes hard to find a supervisor when you need one but there are always coworkers that are willing to help.

A great place to work, if
Central Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIMay 7, 2019
This is a great place to work if you’re someone that enjoys poor management, the feeling of being watched every moment of the day, lack of communication between team leads and floor staff, and knowing that you have a very slim chance of advancing. If you know of someone looking for a job, and you want to make their lives miserable for 10 hours a day, I would highly recommend having them apply with Forefront.

You are a number instead of employee, company trying to buy out all dermatology offices around. Management only cares about money- not patient care! Never room for advancement.

Low office morale

Stressful but straight forward work
Central Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIMarch 24, 2019
The work at forefront as a scheduler is mundane and not much to it, it is customer service so expect the usual downfalls of that type of work. The benefits are good and pay is decent, if you don’t mind dealing with occasional rude people then this is a great fit for you.
Pros
Decent pay, plenty of break time, independent work
Cons
Rude clients, expected to know lot of information, long days

Ok for entry-level, but don’t plan on staying.
Billing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Manitowoc, WIDecember 29, 2018
Billing hires at about $12.00/hr. After you’re fully trained (6+ weeks) it goes up to $.50 or so with the potential for $100 monthly incentive. You process insurance and patient payments and take phone calls; it’s much more of a call center than they would have you believe. The customer service aspect is horrible - angry patients all the time, and often for legitimate reasons, and management does not seem to have any interest in minimizing the number of angry patients, and has even made unnecessary changes knowing it will result in more calls. The pay is low for this type of work and you are chained to your desk by the phone queues. Vacation time and sick pay are combined, and unpaid time off is not typically granted. Christmas Eve and New Years Eve are not paid holidays anymore. Technically there are advancement opportunities, but it is not really the type of workplace most people would want to advance in, and the turnover rate is extremely high. Company is acquiring new practices so fast that they can’t even keep up. It’s a good place to get some office-job experience if you’re fresh out of school or trying to get out of retail or something, but it’s not the kind of place most people want to build a career within. Get in and get out with a year of experience or so under your belt.
Pros
Nice coworkers and billing managers, frequent potlucks and small parties. Genuine attempt at company culture.
Cons
Constant incoming phone calls, lack of flexibility, not enough time off.

Do not recommend this job
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PADecember 17, 2018
FF pushes to see as many patients as possible, running hours behind, rarely getting lunches or a break. Long hours. Very poor raises. FF does not care about their employees, all they care about it how to make more money. Poor upper management, little knowledge on what they employees do on a daily basis. Staff never know when they are done for the day.
Pros
Free Drug rep lunches
Cons
no breaks, no lunches, no compassion about employee

Histotechnician (Former Employee) –  Carmel, INDecember 5, 2018
I would not recommend Forefront Dermatology as a place to work for anyone. I worked as a histotech for the Mohs surgeon in Carmel, Indiana. The turnover rate is ridiculous. I was there a year and have yet to see anyone stay that long after I quit. The pressure and expectations placed on the histotech are impossible. You are set up to fail. You are not appreciated and will be treated terrible.
I have a wonderful job now working as a histotech in a pathology laboratory where people work as a team and support and appreciate one another. The Mohs “team” , mainly management/supervisors at Forefront Dermatology in Carmel, Indiana are the exact opposite of being supportive and appreciative of each other.
There are many places to work. No amount of money would ever entice me to go back to work there. I feel terrible for the next person who attempts the histotech position at this location.
