    Pros

    Good mission. IFH is a training organization and has many volunteers/interns/students. Opportunities to learn more if you want to.

    Cons

    Everyone at the organization does WAY more than they should and feels like they have to do 5 jobs in order to keep things running at all (with little to no recognition)

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the hard work of your employees. Replace the employees who spread negative energy and spend all day complaining and on their phones.

    Pros

    Great Location, Good for those who don't care about working in a healthy environment.

    Cons

    Unprofessional, toxic work environment, staff will either like you or not, working with senior management was unpleasant and mean, bad company culture, staff have attitudes, no courtesy, I would not recommend this non for profit as an employer to work for, board of directors really have no say, senior management dictate what needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of work to do to improve morale, and it all needs to start with senior management.

    Pros

    Expanding and growing with the new health care changes.

    Cons

    Poor benefits, poor communication, poor training, poor leadership. Upper and middle management creates a borderline hostile environment; uses scare tactics, framing tactics, and is punitive. It is seen in the extremely high turnover in staff.

    Pros

    This is a mission driven institution that does great work for New York City's underserved populations. It has plenty of opportunity for growth and leadership who are committed to improving the health of the community. They offer almost 5 weeks of paid time off to any full time employee and most employees (not including clinicians) only work 40 hours per week.

    Cons

    It is a fast paced, often chaotic environment and the pay is much lower than what can be found at academic research institutions or government entities.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to understand what's happening on the ground floor. Often times policies were created and enforced at IFH without any discussion about the relevance of those policies to the staff who they directly affected.

    Pros

    The doctors and nurses were great to work with. They really care about their patients and went above and beyond for them.

    Cons

    The pay didn't match the work. And the employees knew that they were all disposable at a moment's notice.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciation goes a long way. Some of the administrators were full of themselves and abused their power. They had their favorites, and everyone knew it. Very unprofessional when it came to the employees. Their core values were great, but hardly implemented by ALL employees and administrators.
