    I worked at Public Health Management as an intern

    Pros

    Awesome people in the R&D team, beautiful new office space, great benefits, value for mentoring young employees and interns.

    Cons

    Work can get dry, the place is so big you can feel somewhat disconnected from the mission of the place -- definitely doesn't have the typical nonprofit feel.

    I have been working at Public Health Management full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good colleagues doing good work for a good cause despite a complete lack of support from management.

    Cons

    All the people in charge seem to care about is money and appearance. We have a pretty new building but some employees have a hard time doing their jobs because there was no consideration of their needs, or of HIPPA regulations. HR is a joke, no one can ever get any information or assistance from them. The computer network is always going down. No one seems to care about client outcomes, just "productivity". I am told the directors get bonuses based on how much money they bring in, not how well they serve clients. I don't know if this is true but it really feels like it is. It is sad because the lower level staff is really trying but no one seems to support them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to basics, and focus on the mission. Employees are your best asset, support them and listen to them. We need the basics to do our jobs, the fancy stuff can come later. Practice what you preach.

    I have been working at Public Health Management

    Pros

    PHMC is a great place to work for its benefits. It also provides an excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, and there is very little room for career advancement. You only receives $500 for tuition reimbursement vs. other companies where they pay for your education.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more opportunity for career advancement, and tuition reimbursement should be increased.
