Pros

You get a sense of satisfaction knowing you are helping the community through your work.

Cons

The location in Oakland is dangerous and traffic rules (letting pedestrians the right of way for example) not always apply.

Moving up in the agency is based on cliques. If you don't like to play politics at work, you should not expect raises or advancing in your career based on merit alone.

Advice to Management

Make the agency a meritocracy and give employees frequent evaluations too. This way laziness and indifference towards work can be avoided as well.

Train front-desk staff to be more professional on the phone and in person when dealing with patients.

    Pros

    Flexibility in terms of multiple departments and locations if you have the kind of job needed around the organization. Lots of training opportunities, especially for the managers. Some departments have a strong family or community feeling. I think many managers try hard to do the right thing. Commitment to the community, employee wellness program, pretty good benefits, some buildings nice to work in.

    Cons

    Non profit pay scale. Can be super gossipy depending on the department. Management seems to have a hard time firing people who should be fired. Not always an emotionally healthy place too work. It depends a lot on your manager and how mature your co-workers are.

    Advice to Management

    Let us know what's going on more often. Hold managers accountable to support staff. Get rid of people who aren't helping our patients or are being respectful to patients or co-workers. Provide more employee training, vacation time and extended sick leave.

    I have been working at La Clinica de La Raza full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They will hire family members, which is considerate and family oriented

    Cons

    Demoralization, no appearance of leadership, very poor use of politics , not enough work balance, supervisors abuse authority and are not held responsible for there dishonesty, which in turn will cause an employee to spiral out of control.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider valuing the accomplishments and utilizing a persons ability to get the job done. Hold every employee responsible for their actions.
