    I have been working at PHFE full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    PHFE does incredible work--both in terms of partnering with health departments and other public or private agencies to shape public health outcomes and in terms of conducting direct public health services in areas such as maternal-infant health, communicable disease, homeless outreach and violence prevention. The Board of Directors has recently brought on dynamic new leadership, which has been a real boost to the organization. The organization is poised for a very dynamic future.

    Cons

    I would like to see more healthy lunch options in the neighborhood!

    Pros

    Money... sorry. That's about it. There is nothing to see here.

    Cons

    No one was professional. The leadership under Blaine and others is sorely lacking. I wouldn't trust my back office function to this group it was that last option on earth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire someone with a true business understanding. This company is dead.

    I worked at PHFE full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    403B contributions, good employees, good way to serve the community, if you pay attention you can learn a few skills, pay is competitive.

    Cons

    It used to be fun to go to work at PHFE and now the focus is numbers at all cost. High pressure and stress. Turnaround is very high, employees are micro managed, if you think on your own you need not apply, if you jump on command and can get a dark brown nose you might move up. Management seems to be more interested in being good lap dogs, infighting and making sure the employees know who's the boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in people skills training, value the ones that make the business grow, think outside the box. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, never forget that. Be real and if you can't treat people with respect or feel you are superior, get another job.

    Pros

    Great clients and programs serving the community based and public health needs of communities. Used to be a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    The CEO, Nancy Kindelan and PHFE's executive management team are at their absolute worst. CEO is quick to judge, does not listen, can not admit when she is wrong, and rules with an iron fist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take inventory of staff; you will find that most are unhappy yet afraid of retaliation should they speak up and provide feedback. The organizations infrastructure is crumbling, due to the CEO and her minions, aka Management Team!

    Pros

    PHFE has been on a year long journey to focus more on its clients. As such, needed staff changes have been made for the betterment of the company. I applaud Management, particularly Nancy Kindelan, on making the difficult choices to move the company forward. The company is moving in a positive direction and clients are happier, we have clear direction and more job satisfaction.

    Cons

    Staff unwillng to change have made the transition in the last year difficult. However, the changes give me lots of hope for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the great job!

    Pros

    The company is moving in a new direction where expansion and stability are the goal. Our current CEO is a great leader that always does what's best for the company. She promotes transperancy within the company at every level. Her accounting background has given the company financial stability. We will be starting a new chapter once the new CEO starts July 2014.
    The company's benefits plan is outstanding and their time off policy is very flexible. The company contributes to your 403b plan after a year of employment. Employee activities make the workday more fun.

    Cons

    There aren't alot of restaurants in the area, it is a bit isolated from other commercial areas. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognizing exemplary employees would be a great way to highlight and motivate employees.

    Pros

    Thanks to Nancy Kindelan's direction and support, PHFE is now a better and positive place to work. Her open communication, availability to all levels of employees and programs, as well as charismatic leadership has invigorated employees. She is personable and fair is her decision-making. Skilled and talented co-workers along with a fun work environment makes it an enjoyable place to work since Nancy Kindelan has been CEO.

    The company offers great benefits, compensation, training opportunities, and autonomy. It is a challenging fast-paced environment that never gets boring. The programs supported by PHFE do amazing work in the community and are great people to support.

    Cons

    The time management system is a problem but is being addressed by upper management. Some managers require training in order to develop stronger management skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuing listening to the concerns of employees and the programs. Change has been positive and should continue as necessary.

    Pros

    The company had good celebrations for everything.

    Cons

    The current CEO feels as though she can speak to any staff (even programs aka CLIENTS) any way she feels appropriate. What she says "goes". She's a discriminating bigot and if you disagree with her she makes it her personal mission to make your life hell at work. She also has KEY people that act as her inside flunkies. This used to be a great & fun place to work. I used to love working here and for one of the directors who is no longer there, until Nancy Kindelan became INTERIM(!) CEO. It's time for the interim period to end. The new CEO cannot start soon enough.

    Nancy is running the company into the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plead with the new CEO to start sooner!
    Investigate the CEO's behavior and decisions!
