    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, positive work environment. It can be difficult to get hired, but it seems they are really looking for the best candidates. My current supervisor is one of the best I've ever had. Great training programs.

    Cons

    Lots of long hours. The work pace is pretty crazy. Things change quite a bit, but I think that is just the industry after the affordable care act.

    Pros

    The salary is competitive for the location.

    Cons

    Significant micromanagement issues, inefficient workflow in nearly every department, and an absolutely critical communication challenge both within a single department as well as interdepartmentally.

    Advice to Management

    Capitalize on your current investments and employees before growing further. Improve efficiencies, communication, and support your employees; growth will come naturally. There's a reason that only three to four people in a department of 45 have lasted more than four to five years.

    High turnover rate that comes with working in a high need area.

    We will try to do our best to improve that turnover rate. As you observed, it is very difficult to keep fresh and invigorated when there is so much unmet need. Keep up the great work and thank you ... More

    Pros

    They have decent insurance coverage

    Cons

    Many workers feel their input is not respected. Upper management asks for feedback through surveys but do not follow input from line-staff.

    Advice to Management

    Really listen to the line staff. Their input can be quite valuable.

    Pros

    I have worked for YVFWC for over 7 years. The reason I have stayed at YVFWC is because of the tremendous impact we have on the underserved communities we serve. The patient stories we hear about from time-to-time describe their positive experiences with our staff and providers. We are often the only opportunity for healthcare for many people in our service areas. the other thing that has kept me here is the quality and commitment of our healthcare providers. We have many very well-trained providers who choose to work for us because of the patient population we serve and the quality healthcare we are able to provide. Hearing the stories of our providers and why they choose to work for us is inspiring and motivating.

    Cons

    Because YVFWC has grown quickly we lack adequate administrative space.

    Advice to Management

    Plan for growth strategically.

    Pros

    I work with ivy league providers that have dedicated their lives to service of those who need it most. My coworkers are kind, professional, and inspiring. Supervisors are thoughtful and welcome feedback. This organization has gone through a transformation in the recent past and now very much follows it's core values: trust, integrity, transparency, justice, joy and courage. This organization is one of the best nonprofit health care providers I've ever had the pleasure of working for.

    Cons

    The need of our patients will always outstrip our ability to serve them. It can be frustrating to not be able to do more for our communities. Also, because the work is so important, we often put in long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is difficult, but your bravery and honesty are well appreciated.
