    Pros

    Service mission. Flexibility to care for very underserved population who are not being served by other health systems.

    Cons

    Administrators wield the power and are very stingy, demanding more productivity and offering less reimbursement. Providers are simply not supported. Very high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the incredibly high turnover. You cannot compete with other local organizations unless you increase salaries. You are asking providers to do harder work than many other comparable organizations, yet paying much less and not offering support or incentives to stay. No wonder so many providers leave.

    Pros

    Mission driven organization that does amazing work for the various communities in San Diego. If you're looking for a company where you feel that you are making a difference in the world, this is it. Whether you are in patient care or on the organizational side of things, the work you are doing truly impacts people's lives.

    Cons

    Very busy environment, by no means will you have a lack of work to do.

    Pay is on the lower end, but that is to be expected with a nonprofit like this. If you choose to work here it's for the mission, not the salary.

    Pros

    Manager helps you balance your personal life with work. You get to meet some nice people

    Cons

    be ready to work long hours, if allowed to do over time. They are very special when it comes to over time. You will have a lot of work and little help. Over worked, no support, blamed for everything, looked down upon if your not a provider. No appreciate for hard work. Underpaid.

    Cons

    - Unprofessional support staff
    - Under-trained, inexperienced clinicians, with little guidance from supervisors

    - The goal is about quantity not quality
    - Overworked and forced to treat sick children, therefore clinicians are continually sick

    Pros

    Family Health Centers truly cares about the mission and the people they serve. They look out for the needs of the patients and find ways to meet that need. But, they also understand that they have to maintain a sound financial footing if they want to stay in business, or better yet, expand their services to care for more people.

    Cons

    It is a passionate team that works very hard to meet their mission. This is not a job for a slacker or someone looking for a easy 9-5 place. But, if you are willing to work hard, you can go home at night knowing that you have helped a lot of families.

    Pros

    The majority of the people who work here are hard-working team players and it's easy to make lifelong friends here. I did not use the health benefits, but heard that they were comparable to those offered by Sharp or Kaiser. Time-off accrual is at a decent rate. Company values motivate employees to continue growing within the company.

    Cons

    Compensation is generally much lower than other employers within San Diego county, but this is expected since it is a non-profit organization. Some members of management can be very difficult to work with.
