Pros

Team focused environment. Everyone worked well together.

Cons

With the amount of changes that occur in healthcare, the HCA position is overwhelmed and turnover is extremely high.

Advice to Management

Understand the FULL responsibilities that fall on HCA's. It's too much. The HCA's cover all the responsibilities that a practitioner doesn't. HCA's need to be hired for "front work" and "back work"; not both.

    Pros

    Great cause, committed employees, laudable services, varied departments, valuable career stepping stone, brand recognition

    Cons

    Organization is overly large and not streamlined, low pay, young and inexperienced staff, supervisors can be unavailable due to broad responsibilities, limited interdepartmental communication leads to duplicated services, ageism

    Advice to Management

    Be more in contact with your staff, especially those in non clinical departments. Focus on community involvement and fundraising, as is common and productive in non California PPA agencies. Reach out to your volunteers and create volunteer trainings. Investigate departmental ageism.

    Pros

    Interned here during college. Internship provided me with GREAT experience from Raiser's Edge, donor research, collecting in-kind donations, and event logistics. I have carried these skills/experiences with me beyond college and I know it helped me score my 1st post grad job. Very thankful for the opportunity. Not to mention ... it was PAID. I got a stipend at the end.

    Cons

    My supervisor was rarely there, so I felt like I missed out on getting a lot of feedback, but it taught me the lesson of learning how to figure it out for myself.
