I am considering a job with a major CMG. I hate the idea of a CMG, but it's due to geographical desire. Considering the hospital is short-staffed, and I am also gonna be a nocturnist, I'm hoping to negotiate up on the hourly rate, especially since I don't NEED to be in this geographical area (and only WANT it). Do CMG's generally bargain? I remember working at one hospital which was staffed by a CMG that paid the same hourly rate to everyone across the board, which is why I ask.
