    I worked at University Surgical Associates full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The clinical and support staff were amazing, and they worked very well together. The surgeons were very supportive of their staff members.

    Cons

    The management were intolerable and seemed to be on a witch hunt. I felt watched while I was an employee. It was a very uncomfortable place to work. No room for growth. No raise, even when my position had several responsibilities added. High turnover. Culture of fear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please trust that you hired competent people and let them breath a bit and do a good job without micromanaging them.

    I worked at University Surgical Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic, work can be challenging, most of the surgeons are pleasant to work with, job security is good.

    Cons

    No education benefits or opportunities, managers are not necessarily skilled as managers, project coordinators, event planners or communicators. Skilled training and support is lacking, a lot of I don't know how responses. Good employees tend to have double and triple the responsibilities and work loads to make up for negative or bad employees who are keep when they are not qualified for the job they were hired to do or just don't care, just here for a paycheck types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop running the place for the benefit of bad employees. Reward your talent and get rid of those who take advantage of your kindness.

    I have been working at University Surgical Associates full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    My step-mother passed away about a month after I started. I had to leave town (out of state) for almost a week to be with my family. When I told the company the day before leaving, they were very understanding. They did what they had to do so I could be with my family. While I was out of town, I received a condolence bouquet from the company. It was very nice to come home to.

    Cons

    It is a very stressful job. It is extremely demanding. You are expected to keep track of a lot including: patients, the doctor, surgery, insurance dealings, billing. There is a lot to take care of and keep track of, but if you can keep your head straight, you can make it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have a few more people hired to help the office staff in the company. It would also be nice to have someone check in with you to see how you are making out and support you a little bit more.
