    Pros

    Family like company with good enough benefits. Some bonds made here are really strong, great company to make life long friends

    Cons

    Management do not stick up for staff. A patient can verbally assault you in front of them, and absolutely nothing will happen. except the patient's services being "expedited."

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for your staff! It will make the work day much much better. Also follow you own rules, whats good for one is good for all.

    Pros

    The people you get to work with are amazing. Passionate and dedicated staff who believe in the mission.

    Cons

    Clinic staff are overworked and under paid. Constant restructuring makes the work environment unstable and leaves you wondering if you will be next. Not much room for internal growth and advancement, maybe one level but no career path. They don't seem to have respect for those that have been with the organization long term.

    Pros

    Amazing mission, passionate people, benefits

    Cons

    Culture of fear, trickle down management, non-competitive pay, treat employees as a liability rather than asset

    Advice to Management

    Actually practice an Open Door policy, as advertised, not use openness as an opportunity to put an X on someone's back. Offer competitive pay, especially for RHAs.
