    Pros

    Health benefits was pretty amazing, the only good thing about that place

    Cons

    Depending on department it wasn't bad. I was in scheduling and they treat you like crap. They don't care about that department. You can never go to the events they had during work hours bc you're stuck on the phone. I got to see every other department enjoy getting a break from work and go to a event and they always gave out treats. Thanksgiving potluck (was the only one we could take part in) but you had to take it back to your desk or if you stayed in the big break room/Cafeteria you had to eat fast to get back. The directors play nothing but favoritism, if you weren't a favorite, you will be miserable there. I had enough and left and that was the best decision of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Care for all departments

    I worked at Community Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Fellow coworkers can be amazing people to work with.

    Cons

    The patients can be overwhelming at times but everyone has there right to a bad day. Management could use an upgrade, staff needs to be appreciated better

    Advice to Management

    Stop asking for staff opinions on changes to make the work life better and then not implementing those ideas.

    I worked at Community Health Services as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There was plenty of hours to pick up if you wanted to work, and no pressure if you didn't want to.

    Cons

    The facility I worked at didn't realize I had taken a set of narc keys home with me, until I informed them. At one point, there was 4 different agency nurses working full time schedules, but they couldn't keep their own staff. Maybe if they paid their nurses part of that "agency $$" they could keep staff

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees when they give different options on how to geta job done.

    I worked at Community Health Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They provided opportunity for training and education. There was a real sense of family and team spirit. Their security department is the best I've ever had.

    Cons

    High volume of patients with complex health care needs. I would have liked to have had more opportunity for case managememnt.

    Advice to Management

    Need more support for new hires. I recommend developing a mentoring program. Focus more on retention. It is difficult to perform to ones best when staff is always changing.

    Pros

    Community first and team oriented health center. The employees are all there for all the right reasons.

    Cons

    The Board and the CEO didn't share the same vision, while I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with Mr. Sherman's vision of being more then just a health center, and be a community center.

    Pros

    Able to help individuals in need. Company open to new ideas. Medium facility allows for networking and relationship building with colleagues. Benefits are okay for non profit

    Cons

    Employees turnover ratio is 3 to 1. Newly appointed hr director. Terminated CEO and COO. Company volatile And employees satisfaction deteriorating. Low pay

    Advice to Management

    Create team building exercises to help employees work together and trust each other. Have a measurable and quantifiable approach to performance reviews. And allow employees to give performance reviews of upper management I.e. two way performance reviews.
