Hi, RS P. I'm not in the medical field, but I will say in my experience, a company's culture can vary greatly, even within the same industry. The culture of a company is very unique, so one hospital may differ drastically from another, one private practice may differ from another, etc.


I think someone who is in the medical field could probably speak to specific examples of where company cultures may differ, but in general, it really depends on the company itself. A great way to get a feel for a company's culture is to do an internship there, volunteer work or any type of experience that allows you to spend time in the building and interacting with many employees. That would help you get a feel for what the culture is like.


I hope that helps, at least a little bit. Hopefully someone who is in the medical field can speak to specific points within that industry!


Best of luck to you.

As a clinical intraoperative neuromonitorist I used to take breaks and work with surgeons and nurses. The culture is professional but also a lot of comraderie. Doctors are the leaders, which can cause problems when they are wrong. Nurses are always subordinate to the doctors but are critical of their mistakes behind their backs. As an outsider it was important for me to always present a good image and represent my company well by staying professional and doing a good job at work. Doctors did not want to be led into side conversations and things always had to be matter-of-fact.
