Started out OK, but got progressively worse as business weakened.

I worked at Children's Health Council full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great mission. Seeing positive change in kids was uplifting.

Cons

The executive team is weak and lacking in business experience, e.g., the ability to create a sustainable business model. As a result, clinical services and service providers suffer, while an emphasis is placed on marketing to HNWI and fundraising. Staff is underpaid (wages were frozen while I was there) and unappreciated; everyone is considered replaceable, which leads to a very high rate of turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on improving services and lowering costs for under-resourced families. Reward valuable employees and provide more opportunities for professional development.

    I worked at Children's Health Council full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - What they stand for is wonderful.

    - Benefits are okay ( when I left at least, they keep changing how much of it they will pay for).

    - Some positions start out at a good rate .

    Cons

    - Only a small group in the company is treated with respect.

    - While it should be all about the kids the families they serve it has become all about asking everyone (including employees) for money.

    - If you deserve a raise for more work given to you that won't happen. They give everyone in the whole company a very small raise about once every 3 years. So this means say a teacher could get the same increase as the receptionist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Especially the ones that are working the hardest for you.
