I was hoping to get some input from whoever is willing to shed some insight on an offer I received today. It's an outpatient IM position in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. Mainly consists of clinic time, plus 3 half days at two nursing homes. I would also be on staff at the local hospital, but normally don't have patients there. It's M-F, 8 hour days. I would be on call for the nursing homes daily, plus two Saturdays/month. In addition, I'd also work two Saturdays per month.
4-5 year contract
Base salary: 84,000
401k 3-7% after 1 year.
25% of collections over 200,000 after 1 year.
2 weeks vacation, doesn't increase over time. 5 sick days.
5 days for CMEs, $1000 for them.
No health insurance coverage.
State license/DEA covered
I'd appreciate any kind of advice on the matter, I know it is not a very good offer, but I was hoping to get some advice on how to counter-offer or if it's worth counter-offering. This is a practice with 4 physicians and 1 PA. It provides for a good learning environment which is important to me, however pay and benefits are also important.
Thank you in advance!
