Pros

lots of vacation time, 3 weeks during year one, 4 weeks during year two. plenty of training

Cons

in some areas - no ability to advance. work is grant drive- once the grant runs out you switch your focus or lose your job. They don't hire the best people for the job they just move them around. They are trying to stay on top of the new trends in behavioral health and primary care but they have no knowledge of health care. Up until July there was no ability to earn a raise no matter how hard you work. They will not give a market analysis to employees just managers. It's becoming to top heavy with managers

Advice to Management

Pay your employees more. don't rely on grants to guide your work

    Pros

    Being part of a team of people dedicated to improving the lives of clients, students and the communities we live in. Good health and retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Very lean, and resource constrained organization. Gov't program funding makes it very difficult to be equitable and consistent. Difficult work, staffing and retention risks, potential burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Clinical and direct care work is important and is the 'true' work of the clinic, but lack of focus on infrastructure, development and equitable practices will leave employees feeling overwhelmed and unsupported.
