Compensation was great: unrealistic expectations

Put frontline teams at undue risk for fraud and burnout. Middle Mgmt is very high pressure/highly competitive. Lots of cronyism and backstabbing for advancement. CEO hired “innovators” and got people bringing in their business partners and friends. More about money; less about people and patients

Pros

Paid well

Cons

Zero work life balance; cut throat advancement

Great Culture, Hard to Move Up

Sound has a great company culture. Everyone is extremely helpful and professional. Compensation is on point. It seems as though the hiring managers would rather hire outside the company instead of cultivating the talent they already have on staff. It's also a bit sad that with a company this size, there is no education or CEU reimbursement for business colleagues. Overall though, the work/life balance and company culture is good.

Pros

Good compensation: salary + bonuses.

Cons

No continuing education reimbursement for business colleagues.

Stay away

Terrible company. Too many meetings. Upper management heavy. Most managers like they are so far above you. Too high of expectations for 1 person to accomplish. Low pay for the work load, no raises only a bonus if you make the numbers of which you have no control of. Little to no support. If you have a question or a problem and ask for help you are looked down at. If you call off because you’re sick they look at they will write you up. They say one thing but do another. I would recommend staying away from the CPN position. Just don’t work for this company.

Pros

None

Cons

do not work for this employer

They put profits over people and patient care. Leadership is only worried about their bonus and metrics, does not listen to providers on the ground, company (not the providers) put patients at risk and providers at risk to meet their staffing metrics, and wonder why patient experience is so poor. They drive out people that won't agree with their profits over people, especially the good ones.They talk a good talk and then does not follow their own concerns. Ex. They profess they support provider 'well-being' yet do nothing to obtain that except have webinars. Do not waste your time working for this company. You will regret it.

Pros

work hour flexibility

Cons

horrible benefits, especially health benefits, hypocritical, profits over people, staffing

Great organization w/solid leaders

PROS: Great organization w/solid leadership! Clear mission/vision/values that are part of daily conversation. The CEO and President are remarkable and intelligent in their own right! The company is not afraid to take calculated risks. Very comfortable working environment and company culture. GREAT team members. CONS: There is a lot of turnover at all levels. The company is without an advanced structured pay scale that accounts for cost of living in different geographical locations. In the operations segment of the business, managers and below - the merit increases are laughable at best (nothing more than 2%/year and no COL). Unless you’re a physician/nurse practitioner/APP - the salary is average to low. Good career starting point but no real room for advancement. Oddly enough, the benefits at this healthcare organization are laughably bad.

Lack of trust

Would not work for this place if given a second chance. Job culture did not fit expectations. Pay is at market level. Does not appreciate keeping current staff.

lot of support and engagement from administrative team

I worked with Sound physicians for 8 years and liked the level of organization and support for the clinicians. Additionally, there was mentoring and leadership opportunities you don't always get in private practice. Staffing is an issue as it is with most practices but overall, good support and well balanced culture that encourages growth and continued learning and development in many levels.

Pros

leadership development

Cons

staffing

Only worried about numbers No concern for quality patient care. Patients are treated like cattle

Lousy communication, no clear standards for patient care, poor support from management. Night shift is constantly having to clean up after day people. Mediocre pay considering the work and responsibility. Managers are only worried about getting ahead. Cannot trust anyone.

Pros

Insurance is ok

Cons

Bad communication, managers are only interested in promoting themselves. Horrible place to be a nurse practitioner

Make sure your Sound quality 100%

The job was nice and you'll stay busy. Be prepared to get calls, texts or emails all day and when you're not getting paid to work. You'll need to be a good multitasker to do your job and others. If they don't like you, your pregnant, or you stick up for yourself be prepared to be let go and get told you're no longer a good fit. The company is a great company with wonderful with wonderful values but know your voice, opinion, or rights or your values mean nothing.

Cons

Management, lack of respect by others, doing tasks your not trained or suppose to do, lack of support regardless

Do not waste your time

Poor lower and upper management. No support from “Regional Leaders”. They abuse all and everyone no exceptions. When you bring forth corruption with evidence they look away. Upper management is lazy. They abuse their physicians take advantage of their lack of world experience. Run away from this place.

Pros

None

Cons

No bonuses, low pay, 24/7 work.

Excellent Culture and Exciting Work

I have been with Sound Physicians for about a year, and it has been the best career experience I have ever had. The leadership is transparent and relatable. The culture is inclusive and exciting. The work is extremely motivating.

Management not to be trusted

Don't trust senior management, they will tell you one thing to your face and treat you completely differently. No job security, the boots on the ground are disposable.

Run away!

Sound is full of empty promises..... no protection for business colleagues. Engagement is a buzzword only to make the company look better on paper, but in reality, no investment in employees' well-being, because regional and senior leaders are here to fill their pockets. People who care don't have any power to make changes, and people who have the power, don't care. If you are someone who is in healthcare because you truly care about making an impact on patients' lives, this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you have questionable lines of integrity and poor leadership skills, congratulations! you've found your place in the industry!

Pros

National company

Cons

Pay, Leadership, Advancement and growth, Well-being, "Love it or leave it" culture

No support from management and no raises

What started out as a great job quickly turned bad. I never received a raise in over four years, no bonus or RVU money. I had very little support from my management team and our chiefs lacked leadership abilities. I ended up hating the job I once loved

Pros

work every other week

Cons

no raise, no support, poor leadership

Love working with a team that feels like family

I took a leap of faith joining this company several years ago and it was well worth the risk. The leadership at Sound is awesome. They truly believe in the mission to provide excellent care at lower cost. In addition to believing in the mission, the culture and the people make Sound the best place to work. I go to work excited about the day ahead because I’m surrounded by a team that is super support and has a true “get stuff done” attitude. Best. Job. Ever.

Pros

Work from home, great leadership, game changer in the future of healthcare, strong core values.

Cons

Major shift in diversity and inclusion, boundaries don’t exist with work/life balance.

Wonderful company-no advancement opportunities for nurses

Overall the company was wonderful to work for. However, there are no advancement opportunities for nurses and the work became stagnant and unfulfilling.
