    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at CommuniCare Health Centers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees had access to seek treatment by on staff physicians if they felt it.

    Cons

    Low wages, poor leadership which led to low morale. Employees did not feel valued. Leadership were always praised and rewarded while the front line staff were pressured daily.

    Advice to Management

    Remove current leadership and replace with leadership that will treat employees fairly, spread the wealth and reward them for a job well done.Implement strategies to boost morale.

    I worked at CommuniCare Health Centers full-time

    Pros

    I worked at CommuniCare in Woodland for 1.5yrs as a RN. Amazing co-workers who are truly there for the patients. Providers are easy to collaborate with, although not true for all sites. Great place to get 1yr of new grad experience, but after leave. Pay horrible but good benefits.

    Cons

    Management is unbearable. Constantly understaffed and overworked. Company does not appreciate their amazing staff members and rewards only those who kiss butt. Drama mimics high school. Patients are not their priority, only numbers and money. Company can easily replace you and they make sure you know that. Beware they will throw you under the bus and fire you without warning. Do not trust anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the mission of this company and focus on patient care. Company is deteriorating rapidly and changing the numbers in order to get grant money is going to catch up to you in the long run. Appreciate the little amount of staff you have left who are working the hardest rather than those who sit and boss people around. Remember karma.

    I worked at CommuniCare Health Centers

    Pros

    Good benefits medical and dental

    Cons

    Some supervisors don't appreciate the staff and the work that they do it seems that they are never satisfied and demands that you work harder. More of a negative attitude staff gets overlooked and under paid...no raises or bonuses unless you work extra harder, and that's a maybe either way. Some supervisors favor other employees and don't have very good attitudes them selfs.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and stop being so negative. Some employees have been there for years. Telling an employee that if there not happy they can go work somewhere else is not very professional.Instead you should see what your employees concerns are and what you can do to help correct it..Not all managers there are the best at managing.
