I worked at Legacy Community Health Services full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Mangers were very nice. A lot of opportunity to make a difference. Clients were very responsive if you showed you genuinely cared. I felt there was ample opportunity to move up the ladder if you proved yourself. Overall a great, GREAT, work environment. You'll definitely miss the people there once you leave!

Cons

Pay was not the best but the great work environment made up for it.

Advice to Management

Keep hiring people who care.

    I worked at Legacy Community Health Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending one what department/team you work for and with, depends on how you are viewed and elevated. I worked with a team that was encouraging, engaging and if your ideas were heard. Processes are defined whether or not people follow through with the outlines.
    If you have an idea, it's heard and I was lucky to be under two managers who were both professional, inspiration and great leaders.

    If you want to do good work, gain a skill set, but know you won't advance in your career, legacy is great foundation to build upon.

    Legacy has a great mission and does great for the community not only at a city level but a state one as well.

    Cons

    Leadership, on the csuite and VP level can be horrendous. It doesn't take long to figure out people in leadership are only there because of who they know and not for how well they manage or lead a team. CEO, while an outstanding leader in the health care world, is not a leader of her employees. She has favorite people, departments and it's obvious. While sharing the same space with her for two years, never engaged in conversation. And when she wants something from a certain department will ask another department to get it from them since she stays close to her friends, not her employees. This not how one leads their people, it's the exact opposite. She also isn't afraid to yell at assistants, and other employees in public if she's having a meltdown. Fear is how she leads, and in my book, thats exactly how you get people to leave.

    It's evident what departments are valued and which ones are not.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership should be at all levels and please don't keep managers/VPs on board because they have been there for x amount of years.

    It's clear in growing quickly, while beneficial for the organization, strained a lot of training and how effective leadership should be growing their teams.
    Remember to value your people, and know they want to grow their careers as well. If there is no value in personal growth people will move on.
