    I worked at AltaMed full-time

    Pros

    Purpose of "serving the underserved communities."
    Corporate office is beautiful; clinics are welcoming.

    Cons

    Too many to list! Career advancement opportunities are available but unless you know someone, you are not moving up. Many "managers" are not qualified to be in those positions. The company does not take advantage of the full potential of their employees. All departments do not work cohesively; seems like they do not trust each other even though they are part of the same organization, working towards the same cause! The organization is still run as though it is a small company and when big issues or projects arise, everyone is forced to run around looking for answers at the VERY LAST MINUTE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO and upper management need to realize the company is growing too fast for its own good; they need to address this BEFORE planning on expanding and acquiring more locations (which is what the CEO and upper management solely focus on). How about your focal point be on growing your talent and making the organization, all different departments, run cohesively FIRST.
