    It's an ok place to start out and gain experience. Chances of increase pay are slim to none.

    Pros

    Flexibility with work-life balance and family. Management is very flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    You get the "ARC discount". You get the benefits and you pay for them with your check.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the favoritism.

    I worked at Austin Regional Clinic part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Job security is good. You get to use all your skills to help patients. If you work hard, have a positive attitude, and are responsible you will be respected. Training is constantly offered. You have a chance to pick up more hours. Most of management and doctors are great to work with.

    Cons

    The pay at first will not be higher than you expected, but as you build yourself up and get a higher education, they will compensate you and you will get better pay. It is open most holidays..so you will have to give one or two up.

    I worked at Austin Regional Clinic full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    While I was not paid fairly for what I did, I did receive a pay check. Overtime was available due to the number of people calling in sick.

    Cons

    Con's consisted of many things. Self insured. This meant when your kid fell off their bike and injured themselves, they called that a preexisting condition. I heard a boy broke a leg playing basketball and they said the same thing. Limited your choice of hospitals to their affiliate. Since I have worked there, I would never be a patient there. Medical Assistants are poorly paid and treated like servants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire some of the people on the upper rung. Could be the old adage, that it rolls downhill but I prefer to be an optimist and think it is only the few who are horrible people.

    I have been working at Austin Regional Clinic full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a good company to begin working in healthcare and get your feet wet. Good to get experience. Management really works with you and personal life. It's an "ok" environment to work at. They do offer tuition reimbursement, flexible hours, vacation, 401K, insurance, etc.

    Cons

    The pay is what makes the company. Either management or HR approves the pay rate and they really try to squeeze as much out of you for as little pay as possible. tuition reimbursement could definitely be more than $1,000 a year. The insurance is set so employees could only see ARC providers or pay out of network fees.

    Pros

    Able to take off whenever as long as you have the time. My manager is great and as long as you do your work they leave you alone

    Cons

    At times we have been very short handed and it can get very fast paced . They are strict on overtime if business is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees a little better. They are just as important in your place of business as anyone else

    Collaborative environment, laid-back, good opportunities for training

    Not a huge opportunity to get too creative

    It's a hectic job with not many pay raises but pretty good benefits and includes a lot of backstabbing.

    Pros

    I like the benefits and the paid time off that you accrue. SOME of your coworkers will be like family! Love that aspect...when there is teamwork!

    Cons

    Hardly any raises. When you do a good job, but your job review still makes you feel like you aren't. The condescending way certain supervisors and good forbid an interim supervisor talks to the subordinates. The drive to work and you feel like you need to bring a box to pack your stuff everyday because they fire people like crazy. Most employees are terrified of certain supervisory personnel. Some of your coworkers will have a bad way of communicating with each other, also.
    It's like you and your good coworkers are adrift on a little raft falling apart in shark infested water and you are clinging to each other for dear life! That's a typical day here.
    I recommend you join the float pool, skip the benefits, and avoid the BS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervise and train nursing supervisors and observe their handling of employees. Most are wonderful, but the bad ones are just so bad. Nurses that eat their young mixed in with the great ones!
