    Current Employee - Account Manager in Richmond, VA (US)

    I have been working at Healthcare Services Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -As long as you understand your facility's needs and have a competent staff, the hours are yours to pick and choose
    -Learn a ton of valuable skills that can translate elsewhere (i.e. budgeting, supply orders, scheduling, staff communication etc...)
    -Learn a fair amount about the Healthcare industry from multiple aspects including: dietary, social services, activities, administration, rehab and medical
    -401K, Stock options, company health insurance, 90-Day raise

    --Overall a decent job that pays ok and offers a ton of room to build your resume. I would recommend staying in long enough to gain solid work experience and then leaving for a better paying job.

    Cons

    -Work-Life balance can suck, once again depending on your staff and the facility's needs
    -Occasional night projects can be a pain but you really only stay until 2-3 in the morning and the finished results are very rewarding
    -Pay is a good amount below average, but ok for entry level
    -Company gets skimpy with supplies towards the end of quarters or the year
    -Training is kind of rushed and incomplete leaving new account managers to fend for themselves on some things
    -Corporate HR can be a real pain to communicate with, MAKE SURE YOUR PAPERWORK IS PERFECT!
    -Some Facility Administrators can be a real pain, just do what they ask and try your best to get on their good side. It will make life easier

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Incentivize lower-level management with incremental pay increases based on progress or results
    -Better prepare start-up buildings and ACTUALLY train staff, and have schedules made for new managers coming in
    -Pay the Hourly staff more, I guarantee they will work harder for more than minimum wage. At the very LEAST, offer them room to grow based upon meeting specified goals
    -Provide more hours to budget staff with. Even if they are not all used, the cushion can help to prevent scheduling problems
