    I worked at New York Blood Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The most important aspect of my position was the ability to work with people at risk, who are often disadvantaged and suspicious (with reason) of medical providers and settings, and provide them with information and support.

    Cons

    Upper management had little interest in day to day efforts with clients. Not always supportive of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find avenues to develop greater respect for a committed staff.
