Nurse Case Manager (Current Employee) – Pinellas Park, FL – September 12, 2018
Working as a contractor with PPDG for US Army reserve. great place to work, because the Job is not that hard, but not enough training, constant changes all the time. Salary cannot be compare to life cost of living.

Be careful with this company. You can work for them for years but if you get sick or have a disability they will terminate you. They feel no remorse for the time and effort you put forth to do your job.
A typical day at work I would multi task whether it be screening patient's, returning patient's phone calls, filling out paper work for your assigned provider, getting afternoon procedure clinic ready or helping out the RN in the Treatment room. I learned how to manage my time efficiently, sharpen my customer service skills & learned all the different joint injection procedures. the most enjoyable part of the job was being able to interact with the patients, providers & the rest of the staff.

I would not be looking to go anywhere if it were not for the benefits. Upper management changed us from Etna gold to United Health Care. Our deductible went from 750.00 dollars a year to 5,000.00 dollars a year. And we had no say in this at all. Rumor had it that Etna was going to raise rates by 15%. My self and others would have rather paid the 15 percent raise. A typical day at work when working in psych was usually a good day. Now that i am a house sitter that has changed. It can be exhausting some days and others is so very boring. The best part of it all is helping the patients, i get a lot out of helping others.
Looked forward to each new day as it was different everyday.
Chiropractor Assistant (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 13, 2017
I enjoy my job as chiropractor assistant as it gave me a different learning experience with co-workers, doctors, military members and most of all patients. Every day was as different as the day before and the next day. Never knowing what would have in store for me. My responsibilities would vary very seldom, but for the majority of the time they remained a consistency. As rotation would take place with the Chiropractor doctors and acupuncture technician we learn to still be a team among the three chiropractor technicians. We worked together in helping each other out even if it was not asked. We knew what was needed for each doctor even though we were not covering for that particular Chiropractor doctor or acupuncture technician. We communicate very well when it came time to having to cover for lunch or having to step out or even being short handed for a day. Being short handed would probably be the most difficult part of this job only because we knew what needed to be done and wanted to get it all done at once.
The pros about this position would have to be slow days.
Some of the cons could be having to take PTO on a mandatory basis.

They had wonderful communication, what they needed from me was always clear and they gave me time to complete what they needed. There was job security to a certain point, and they made sure I was happy with the job and placement.
health promotions (Former Employee) – Idaho – December 29, 2016
The position at Mt Home AFB is actually 52 miles from Boise (the base sits 11 miles from the edge of Mt Home, Idaho). I should know because I live in Boise and have made the commute for over 10 years.
Recently PPDG was awarded my contract and offered to cut my salary by 25%. When I counter offered, they flatly stated that the offer was all they were prepared to compensate. As a result, I am seeking new opportunities.
After speaking with some other contractors on base, this seems to be PPDG's modus operandi. They under bid and cut salary, which is not a good model for pt continuity of care.
I don't recommend this company to anyone, as they are unethical and don't seem to care about their employees. They likely see all employees as replaceable and believe they can find someone else for cheaper.
In addition, it appears as if PPDG is "scrubbing" these reviews. In other words, not all of these reviews are genuine. Notice how polar the reviews are; for example, they are either rated very high or very low. My best guess is that some of these reviews come from current employees of PPDG that work in their recruiting department. And the lower reviews are from past employees that weren't treated very well.

Working for PPDG was a good opportunity for a recently discharged veteran to get a job on a military base as a civilian to continue to serve
LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSE, SAMMC (Former Employee) – San Antonio, Texas – September 4, 2015
I worked as a contract nurse for PPDG on a Medical- Surgical Unit. My experience with this company was overall a good one, although HR staff changes often and their communication is not the greatest. My time at SAMMC was wonderful. I enjoyed most of my shifts and I know that I handled my job professionally with compassionate care.
Mental Health Tech (Former Employee) – Annapolis Naval Health Clinic – June 20, 2015
Things change constantly. Pay rate gets dropped or you are enrolled in IRA plan you don't want but have no choice in. No one gives you real answers. Everyone is Spanish speaking so the language barrier is a negative element. Also very unempathetic to employees needs or feelings. They have no clue how things work where you are but want to try to manage you as if they know what's going on.
Pay not equitable to your location and is based off locality pay in Texas
Contract Manager (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 19, 2014
PPDG is a great place to work! There are numerous opportunities for advancement and the company truly believes in Continuous Process Improvement. Professional Development of staff members is also a priority to the company as well which I find very important.
