Compliance team member (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – May 7, 2018
The most enjoyable part of a workday at Sound are my colleagues. Hardest part of the position is dealing with persons who do not pay attention to detail. The Culture at Sound is drama, drama, and more drama. HR tries to make it fun for holidays and competitions, but it would be nicer to see that you're valued in your compensation. You are always on a need to know basis with management, unless you're lucky to have someone who is upfront. There is not a typical day at Sound, each day is different dependent upon the needs of the client, which can be very hectic.
Nice holiday events, continued education courses for business & clinical colleagues, great people.
Healthcare is very expensive, raises are once in a blue moon, poor leadership, grew too fast without direction.
I had a great working experience at Sound. It was very, very stressful at times but we got through it. I hear management has changed and things are very different now, but when I was there, I loved it.
Hospitalist RN (Former Employee) – Riverdale, GA 30274 – April 12, 2018
Excellent place to grow and excel as a professional. Management supports and encourages employees to grow and advance. The company invests time and money into their employees which encourages the employee to always do their best for the company. I learned performance management and how an organization can progress when goals are reciprocated.
Hospitalist RN (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – April 10, 2018
The HRN role is something that could be beneficial to the clinical site if proper management RNM was present on site, from time to time, and aided in the initiatives that we were being measured on. Often the culture was reactive instead of proactive. Training and orientation was weak, the blind leading the blind. Just a thankless job, good pay but at the end of the day there was no gratification or sense of accomplishment. This job could easily be filled by an LPN or social worker, the need for a high level RN with advanced education is a waste. Nurse manager was a discredit to the company.
All procedures are implanted without the thought or the outcome of the end result. Hate all procedures, no reason to continue to work in circles, it is like working 8 hours not having the ability to show your work,, Pulled several ways for no reason or positive results..
HRIS Project Manager (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – March 29, 2018
Sound Physicians is another exciting place to work if you enjoy change and fast company growth. There was no "typical day' at work as work varied depending on project plans and decisions that had been made. Worked from home as well as on site.
Workplace culture is very much a "can-do" work environment with rapid growth and company acquisitions. A bit chaotic but employees are treated well and there is a lot of excitement and employee engagement around the company mission and goals and the growth and profit opportunities for the field and the company.
The most enjoyable part of the job was doing work I enjoyed doing and excelled at and working for a company that showed respect and had my back during a stressful period in my personal life.
Digital Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – March 6, 2018
From the minute you accept the job offer, Sound makes you feel a part of the team. They provide many different tools and resources to help with your onboarding process, as well as answer any questions you may have to make you feel at ease in the transition of your new job.
Since I have been in the office and working, I have felt valued and my ideas are heard. It is a collaborative work environment and the members of my team are enjoyable to be with.
The organization provides many opportunities to learn and grow in your field, and they invest in their colleagues. I would highly recommend Sound Physicians to anyone looking to grow in their career.
Transitional Care Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Nyack, NY – February 25, 2018
Sound Physicians care about one thing only. Their bottom line. Physicians are put in unsafe ziti total daily with 25+ pts a day. They will promise you bonus’ that you will never see. Drop everything and do this..... drop everything and do that..... Micro management non stop all day long. The turn over is non stop for a reason.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – February 6, 2018
This is a horrible company and the management is the worst! There is no communication between managers and employees. You are thrown into your job with no training. It is sink or swim. The recruiting team is cut throat and one of their long term recruiters has a huge ego and views others as competition. There is no collaborative, team feel here. People are afraid to speak up as it is a "blame" type organization. Steer clear of this company!
Poor management, no development or training, toxic environment
RN Hospitalist (Former Employee) – Virginia – February 3, 2018
The company itself seems to care about their employees, at least in the beginning. On the regional level not so much. They do not provide their employees with the proper training. The training (minimal) that is provided on-site is done by a person who is not qualified. If you are NOT a cut throat type of person, you are set up for failure from the beginning! It is a dog eating dog culture where manipulation, back stabbing and brown nosing is in abundance. It reminds me a lot of high school, if you are not in the "cool" group then you are not liked by your manager. Favoritism shows, not handled like a business.
I enjoyed my work when I had contact with patients and other stakeholders. I worked hard to listen to their needs and make a positive impact to assist them in reaching their goals.
I learned a lot about myself and that I will not change who am I. No matter who you are or what job you perform everybody deserves respect. It is important to talk to people, not at them. Listening is imperative in order to make the communication process work. The salary was great, but there are more important things in my life than money. My compassion and empathy for others, my self-respect and happiness!
Hospitalist RN (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – January 6, 2018
Unfortunately, upper management in this organization are the only ones who benefit here. Those out in the facilities doing the work that is promised through contract negotiations are the ones that will be quickly disposed of when push comes to shove. Watch your back...any ideas you may have will quickly be absorbed by your regional team and taken as their own. Work/life balance is good with the hospitalist team and hospital colleagues generally being those you work and collaborate with on the daily. If you can minimize your time with the the regional team/managers, than you may rate the job better and/or last. Just don't set your expectations too high with this one...too many others have learned the hard way.
Collaborating with everyone outside of the organization
Analyst (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – January 5, 2018
Executives are still trying to run this growing company like it is a Mom & Pop business. Seems like the executives don't have a clue how to effectively make decisions and manage a larger organization even though they continue to acquire more. They need to learn from executives in larger companies.
Coding (Current Employee) – Brentwood, TN – November 27, 2017
After working here and seeing how miserable %85 of their employees are I'm definitely considering a career change. Managers need serious training. Employees are treated unfairly, spoke down to as if you were a child, and talked badly about by managers to other coworkers. Managers walk around the office cursing and bare foot. Employees who brown nose are the only ones treated fairly. False promises are made prior to hire and never delivered. They say they like to promote from within. That only applies if you're within the managers social circle. If the managers feel you know more than they do they or if they just decide they no longer like you they will do their best to get rid of you. They have had 3 ceos in that office in less than a year So apparently their bosses couldn't stand them either. Hopefully this most recent one has some sense and replaces those managers before they have to replace all of the employees. Normally you deal with some type of favoritism in the office, but I've never seen it be this blatant. Benefits and being able to choose your own schedule is nice. Most co workers are tolerable.
