Pros

FCHP is an organization that cares for its members and employees. There is an atmosphere of family and teamwork. The senior leadership is very personable and conveys a clear message as to the goals of the organization.

Cons

I am sure that every manager has a different work style. The organization does not take into consideration an employees longtime loyatly and dedication when personal crisis' arise, even though the employee has complied with all of the managers and human resources requests and recomendations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more understanding to longtime, faithful employees. Every individuals situation is different and an employees dedication and loyalty to the companys mission and values should count for something.

    Pros

    there is a substantial amount of time off available to the providers, which is increasingly rare for most positions. flexible holidays. support staff in one location is wonderful.

    Cons

    too many patients to see in a day. limited support staff in other work location. since the vacation time is generous, the pay tends to be less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increasing pay and reducing the number a patients required for the provider to see, train support staff more.

    Excellent place for an employee, rougher for the middle management (cause senior management is a pain)

    Pros

    The employees are good souls, helpful, smart, supportive and very (even over) qualified for their jobs. You can count on fellow employees and middle management both to do the right thing, treat you well and perform high quality work. The leader of the company also seems to care about the right things and is involved in constantly making the company a better place to work. Pay is decent though not outstanding, but it is boosted by an in house bonus system and good matching on the 401k and good benefits. All in all - very nice place to work.

    Cons

    The VPs / Senior management seem to be a bit out of touch with, well, everything. Additionally, whatever their worth to the company is supposed to be - it's unseeable from the employee level. Budget management seems to be a particular problem for them, and many of the actions we see (such as giving an employee an office then taking it away immediately) or hear (one was quoted directly as saying "they don't care about the employees, they just want them to keep their heads down and be quiet" ) are probably out of context but but paint an uncomfortably ugly picture. I can't say what the true picture is - but the image is very negative and we don't see much to contradict it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on their project management and communication skills, work on their image within the company. Communicate with those below them with more than just (seemingly) arbitrary commands and expectations. Value their employee's and managers more (or they'll end up losing them.) The CEO is more approachable and more caring and involved with the employees of the company than the Senior Management is...
    I know a lot of the senior management is new (as the company grows it needs more VPs I guess) - but the company's growth shouldn't eliminate the good aspects it had - like the employees knowing and caring about those they work with, and the current set up actually seems to be moving backward... building ill will rather than loyalty to the new higher ups.
