    Pros

    Community Heath Center, does a lot for the Community, and there patients. They have a lot of programs for there patients, to help them get heath insurance, and live healthy. They do a lot of out reach for the community.

    Cons

    When it comes to school base..Big problems. they make it out to be the best job ever, because your working in a school. But when school is close or there are snow days. if they don;t have work in the main site, you have to use your own PTO time, or if they only have work in, let's say New London and it's to far for you, your out of luck.When school is out, In the summer, worse! They will ask where would you like to work (what main site), and then, put you where they want. I would never have PTO, it would go all to snow days, or days when my APRN was out, I would have to take my time for that too, if they did not have work for me, in a place that would be close. if your going to work here, make sure you have 2 incomes, and money save, For all those snowy days. The Medical Asst, do everything, and are not given the time to make up there work, and it does not help, that every other month, they'll have us doing more work, or give us more to do.Many people stay in this company for 2yrs, then move on.

    Advice to Management

    Make new Policy for SBHC, that will work and make happy your workers. Atsk, what would help to your workers..And try to work with what they give you. Don't just ask, then never do anything.

    Pros

    For community health center, generous compensation package with bonus incentives for productivity and performance. Good (not too onerous) on call schedule, good CME compensation, decent PTO, some in-house opportunities for professional growth/education.

    Cons

    Frequent turnover of nursing, mid level, and MD/DO staff. Very intense scheduling with high emphasis on "productivity", management very focused on "quality improvement" initiatives without providing necessary nursing and technical support. Significant disconnect between leadership priorities and perceptions of clinical care and the actual stresses, limitations, and barriers faced by clinical staff on day to day basis. In general, poor staff morale.

    Advice to Management

    Can't have the motto of "peace and health" if your staff is burnt out and fed up.

    Pros

    Good communication between line staff. Supervision is a priority and taken seriously. Organized electronic record keeping.

    Cons

    Expected to diagnose almost immediately. Unscheduled administrative duties make it difficult to lock notes on time.

    Advice to Management

    Consider scheduling admin time. Being unable to take our computers home, interns cannot always rely on no-shows to lock notes, make referrals, make appointments etc.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good - majority of medical/dental/vision covered by employer (80%+), Anthem coverage, decent 403(b) match, 5 weeks personal time (to be taken any way you like, no differentiating between personal and vacation).

    Cons

    Don't even know where to start with this one. The senior management is so wrapped up in themselves and their image, they could care less about all of the employees that keep their exorbitant paychecks coming. They don't support a healthy work/life balance - if you're not eating/sleeping/breathing CHC, you're not a "Star" employee. It takes it's toll on you for sure.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like a piece of gum - bring a new one in, chew them up until the flavors gone, and just spit them out to move onto the fresh piece... without the blink of an eye.


  8. Brushed aside in a hostile work environment-lack of supervisor assistance where needed

    Pros

    Some staff are very inspired and motivated to help clients/consumers, care about what they do and the help they give. Trained staff are qualified and practice client confidentiality, want to help and are the right kind of people to provide assistance and support to people in recovery for drug addictions.

    Cons

    Supervisor protects bad employees, supervisor doesn't train staff & seems uninterested in quality of staff, high turnover. Staff issues involving dishonesty harms upright staff, they get away with this, don't do their jobs and cause negativity and hostile work environments. Managers not interested in solving staff issues or getting involved, tell staff to "talk to each other to work this out" when some staff have no interest in working anything out to continue deliberately causing problems and continue acting badly. It is hard to keep working in this kind of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Train the staff, listen to employees with problems with other staff and do something that adds to qualified, quality of service provided to clients. Absent management produces ethical violations in staff who are then fired and clients suffer.
