    I worked at California Family Health Council (more than an year)

    Pros

    This organization has an amazing staff that is really trying to make a difference and advance its mission. The staff is highly knowledgeable but sadly, the leadership fails to acknowledge, recognize and capitalize on their staff's knowledge. Beware of this before walking into a hyped-up position.

    Cons

    The working culture at CFHC is absolutely horrendous thanks to the toxic environment the senior leadership create. In my department, my supervisor didn't seem to not know how to say 'no' to the CEO. So in that regard, whatever request came down from the top, however unreasonable it was, that became the number one priority. Don't expect any sort of consistency. Priorities and tasks were often shifted immediately and the turn-around for tasks was extremely quick, making you wonder how these decisions were made. Often times things are assigned and then scrapped at the last minute which creates wasted energy and pointless work. If you try asking questions about strategy, expect to be made to feel inappropriate or dumb. This created an extremely uncomfortable and awkward space that prevented staff from speaking up and standing up for themselves especially when they were feeling abused. Most of the time the leadership had no idea what went into accomplishing some of these projects and failed to appreciate the work you put in. Much of the work that is assigned is very top-down and directive, rather than collaborative. Additionally, most of focus is to enhance the image of the organization rather than to actually further the mission. Very little of the work that I did at CFHC is something that I look at proudly and say it made a difference. In fact, the work that did have meaning to me were the projects that my boss asked me to put on the back-burner leaving me to doubt her competency in her position. On a side note regarding lack of professionalism, my supervisor had a habit of feeling the need to gossip about partner organizations and colleagues in racially and culturally insensitive ways which obviously would lead a person to wonder what was said about you after leaving the room.Overall, I would recommend staying away from this place unless you don't have any good ideas and don't care. The positions tend to be hyped up with fancy buzzwords, but don't really mean anything in practice. Advancement and growth opportunities are minimal. Many of the staff that have worked there for a while talk about a time before the current CEO was in leadership as a positive place to work that was family-friendly, flexible and welcoming. Unfortunately, the current CEO has brought with her a toxic work environment that is reinforced by the leadership she has hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of your egos. Take some leadership courses, management classes, or something. Listen to your staff. They are a lot more knowledgeable than you think. You don't always have the best ideas. Part of being a successful leader is recognizing the talent that is your staff.
