    Pros

    Fast-paced and varied work. In Strategic Communications you bounce around writing, graphic designing and managing the website. I started part-time and moved to full-time as an intern. I also work with great mentors and learn a lot about in-house communication.

    Cons

    I'd like to work more closely with leadership, but in a big company it's understandable that interns work more with coordinators and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! The skills I've learned will help me in my future workplace whether it's at Cambia or not. The people I've met an the projects I've worked on have honed the skills I gained at college.

    Pros

    Loved the creative, high energy environment. Great investment in technology, environment and employee satisfaction/engagement. Loved the employee gym and real commitment to healthy employees. Loved the uber cheap, healthy, locally sourced cafe. Location was great. Work was challenging but creative. Great infrastructure to support startup growth. Lots of room to grow. My colleagues were ambitious, talented and diverse.

    The IT, concierge/security, and HR department/roles were the best I've ever seen and now the model to which I've measured every employer since. Outstanding commitment to technology, efficiency of tools, and avoidance of downtime. Love this place!

    Cons

    Many of the startup leaders come from operational roles and lack basic leadership skills. This was tough because there was no peer support for my business leader in her direct peers - blind leading blind. The few resources DHS gave for coaching, devt, and support of business founders were outstanding but swamped. My business founder had no idea how to talk to customers or lead a strategy and that's ultimately why I left. I wasnt my place to do it for her - and she wasn't able to follow my lead (it wasn't appropriate given her role as business founder and mine as operations manager.) My pay was decent - much less responsibility, no direct reports, etc., than I have usually, but ultimately I accepted another offer at a health system that came with a significant raise, bigger scope (director), supporting a team. I loved my summer at DHS working for this startup and I miss the people, the environment and the work (in that order) very much... I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking to learn and grow, help in very important work of transforming healthcare through innovation; as long as you are strongly self led and autonomous. If you're new in your career and looking for a mentor, look elsewhere. You could find one in a peer but not necessarily in the leaders of DHS businesses. Cambia leadership is good though...HR, IT functions best I've ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Formalized leadership development requirement of business founders AND more consistent profit sharing for first few employees once a startup becomes lucrative.

    If there were metrics tied to pay, my business founder may have had more motivation to get the business off the ground and starting to earn money. Instead she acted as if she was running through the "funny money" of DHS budgeting to prove her hypothesis that this solution would be viable in the marketplace. Rather, this kept pivoting to the point where there was zero attention paid to a pricing strategy that would make it viable.
