    Pros

    Connections with students, social sector impact, changing communities, project based work, time-off, lots of free food, autonomy, great place for future doctors

    Finding true balance & pay. Working for HC is truly a great experience. The staff, leadership, and coordinators are all amazing people who are passionate about changing lives.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation & benefits could be a lot better.

    Pros

    *Coordinators work on a school schedule (besides one month of training in the summer). Coordinators are off all major holidays/summer
    *Young work environment - overwhelming majority of coordinators are right out of college
    *Paycheck dispersed over full year even though work is only school schedule
    *HealthCorps curriculum is provided, but Coordinators are allowed some flexibility in fitting the curriculum into their specific school environment/structure
    *All HealthCorps schools/Coordinators are working in high need communities - many students/school staff are extremely happy to have a Coordinator working in the school
    *Dr. Oz (as the HealthCorps Founder) tries his best to be involved/keep up to date with what the Coordinators are doing at each school site

    Cons

    *Salary is competitive to similar positions (TFA, other first year teaching jobs - even though this job is not teaching), however no up front money is provided for relocation (making if difficult for some recent grads to immediately relocate to job site
    *Only one Coordinate per school, so the HealthCorps community is not as connected as other non-profits or the AmeriCorps programs

    Advice to Management

    *Facilitate some way for coordinators to have face to face meetings with each other to promote cohesion and sharing of programing ideas
