10% of collections after 40,000 what? A month? A quarter? A year?

Malpractice occurrence or claim based? If claim, tail included?

10 days PTO - Low, another week is needed in my opinion. How many holidays?

CME - Awful. Minimum here should be 1,500 and 3 days.

No 401K - Awful. You can do a IRA but cap is around 6K a year. Also means no matching.

You're on call every other week? That's terrible.


Seems pretty bad TBH. What do you make currently and why are you trying to leave?

6 paid holidays


that would be difficult to obtain and i would not count on any bonus tbh. 

No benefits and only 98k/year? No thanks, benefits can be worth anywhere from 10-20k a year. 

I'd counter 115k a year base salary with no benefits.

That's a pretty bad offer TBH. Awful benefits and a lot of hours/patients for low pay. The bonus is also awful and I would not count on any. What did you end up doing?

For reference, I make over 110K base salary with 10% of all collections as a bonus in ortho with decent benefits and no call/weekends.

I declined the offer.

Better luck next time! Hopefully they will have to increase the pay they offer to attract a good employee.
