#174 Radio Show - Are Signing Bonuses the New Non-Compete?

In this radio, I'm joined by guests Meredith Jones, DVM, and Ryan Koopmans, DVM, to discuss Sign-On Bonuses or Signing Bonuses in veterinary medicine. We riff on the topic and discuss the trade-offs - as with anything, it's nuanced.

  • Are huge signing bonuses a HUGE 🚩?
  • Pro-ration on signing bonuses and why that matters.
  • Do they make veterinarians feel "trapped" at an employer?
  • Are they beneficial, or are there other options one should ask for?
  • Will a recession hurt those paying higher signing bonuses?
  • Is a retention bonus the answer?
  • And so much more
