Pros: helping people to heal their chronic wounds
Cons: unrealistic expectations with salary incongruent with role
A Program Director is responsible for doing 5 full-time jobs! Operations, Sales, Management, liasion (to two employers hospital and Healogics AVP) and serve as back up to every other position in the clinic! The expectations are extreme and there are not enough hours in the day! Everyday, "Corporate" comes up with a brilliant new idea - let's add this new task - CRM, CDR, Quarterly competencies reviews for all employees, DASH presentations every quarter. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. I love what I do in helping patients with chronic wounds, but the micro management style from a triple type "A" Area Vice President with unrealistic expectations is burning me out!!!! Oh, and did I mention that I get to do all of this (and more) while being viewed as part of the executive hospital leadership group - for a whopping salary around $75K! The bonuses are impossible too - even if you surpass your goals, you may get about $2K a quarter. Run, don't walk away from this company unless you like being micro managed, underpaid, over worked and exhausted. A :coaching: suggestion for the upper management at Healogics - have each member of the senior team spend a month in the field at a busy wound center doing what we do every day - Maybe you would have more respect and a better understanding of what your employees face daily. Would you do all of what we are expected to do? Would you be satisfied with that paltry salary? Would you enjoy being micro managed? I am going to guess you would answer "No" to all of the above.
