    I have been working at Health Leads

    Pros

    Working with like minded people. Hands on work and working in high need areas. Having the opportunity to make a change.

    Cons

    Non profit struggles. Having to deal with bureaucracy of healthcare system. Having to navigate several different levels of authority to get something done.

  2.  

    Lack of direction and consistency, but consistent with other nonprofit experiences

    Pros

    This is a great organization that is still growing. There's big emphasis on evaluating your own performance and ways that Health Leads can do better (almost too much sometimes, but way better to err on that side). The company has a wonderful, important mission that makes so much sense. It tends to attract good people who work hard and have good hearts. It's possible to learn a lot on the job and make a real difference.

    Cons

    As a college student working at Health Leads to some extent you make less of a difference than expected. Part of this could be naiveté but there are opportunities to improve training and workload and transitions when a family starts working with someone new at Health Leads. That said, college students probably also have a limited capacity at some point.

    Work is ok but gets boring after a while.

    Pros

    You are helping the community and it's a great feeling to be working in non-profit. Work is rewarding and you have a team of great and supportive staff to work with.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work and it demands a lot of hours. Promotions are slow and not a lot of opportunities to advance. There are a lot of work that you have to do on a weekend, mostly during the beginning of school semesters. A lot of team-building and cultural awareness activities. Can get a bit too personal in a professional setting.

    Pros

    You get to work with clients and help make a difference in the non-medical side of health.

    Cons

    Some challenges are getting clients to go to the resources you talked about and also follow-up is time-consuming.

    Pros

    Hand-on learning, teamwork, and many opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Update software system within clinics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on development of the program for undergraduates and opportunities for payment early - on. Many of them would come back in a heart beat.

    I worked at Health Leads full-time

    Pros

    Everyone at the national office of Health Leads has a great enthusiasm and drive for the mission and vision of the organization. They create great morale and teamwork through in-office traditions. The traditions allow the entire office to celebrate a new hire as well as relax together after a busy and efficient workweek.

    Cons

    There seems to be a bit of a segregation between the regional staff and national staff.
