I worked at Boston Public Health Commission full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Dedicated, professional work staff with their eyes on the goal. Great benefits, ample opportunity to learn new skills and languages, friendly environment.

Cons

Located in a not so great neighborhood with few restaurants and hard to get to by metro (though there are buses that stop right in front). Constituent services can always be rough.

    "Challenging population to work with with little support from supervisors"

    Pros

    The population was challenging and forced me to think outside the box in my service approach. In leaving BPHC I was sad to say goodbye to my clients as the experience in working with them gave me a deeper understanding of their needs and challenged me to research ways to address those needs by finding evidence based practices to offer quality service.

    Cons

    There is a lack of professional boundaries held by much of the staff from the administrative level to the entry level. The organizational structure is one which promotes from within through a mixture of seniority and popularity.

    Advice to Management

    Require professional development workshops specific to the service population to all staff. These workshops should be mandatory and respectfully attended/participated. Staff who are grossly negligent, prejudice, disrespectful, abusive to clients should be terminated on the spot with no movement to a different program.
