    I have been working at Native American Health Center as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some very well intending staff on board. They get work life balance and will work with you if you are sick or injured.

    Cons

    Very disorganized and there is a lot of infighting and constant tension in the Wellness department and in medical. The chain of command is vague and there are constant power struggles. Most meetings are just long arguments with accusations all over the place.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe hire someone everyone talk about Native and non-native problems.

    I have been working at Native American Health Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Genuine and caring coworkers. We have a strong sense of purpose and community. Fun community events all year.

    Cons

    Rampant nepotism. Destructive gossip presides over policy and procedure. Promotions not based on skill, seniority or merit. Health related business and professional codes are flouted.
    Internal organization and task flow is redundant and cumbersome. Constant internal fighting and conflict. Revolving door for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Increase use of policy and procedure. Increase number of human resource personnel. Promote from within based on seniority, education and skill level rather than race or familial relation.
