We Don’t Negotiate

When a health system says, “We don’t negotiate. We have a standard contract template that we offer all our clinicians,” you know exactly how you will be seen by your prospective employer.



You will be a standard piece, a cog in a wheel asked to perform a standard set of tasks.



In fact, you’ll be asked to perform as many standard tasks as they can manipulate you into doing.



If you burn out or have a problem, the will try to prop you up with programs to help you “heal in place” or threats of a “performance improvement program.”



You will be a cog.



“We don’t negotiate,” is a very valuable piece of information.



Make your employment decisions accordingly.
