    Pros

    Salary and benefits are better than most agencies.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Foothill Community Health Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good medical, dental and vision benefits

    Cons

    1. As a provider, my work schedule changed from month to month or from week to week. Sometimes, there would be last minute schedule change and you would be expected to work on the day that you were initially told that you were off. 2. Lack of strong leadership, trust and communication from the management. 3. This organization will never appreciate your hard work and efforts. However, the moment they find a small mistake,...

    Advice to Management

    1. Invest more time and efforts in getting to know what your employees want instead of just imposing what you think will work for the management. 2. Stop opening more new clinic and instead focus on bettering the clinics that are actually running. 3. Management needs more training through either going back to school or taking online classes on how to manage an organization of this scale. 4. Put yourself in your employees’...

    I have been working at Foothill Community Health Center full-time

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Opportunity to work with schools. Support among clinicians.

    Cons

    Split to multiple schools at any notice. Limited opportunities to share concerns. If staff question policies often retaliation occurs through HR. Severe micromanging occurs and they appear to love to catch employees doing something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of leading to instill fear on employees through micromanaging and strict policies try and learn from companies who empower and trust employees which can lead to more productivity. Happy workers = Happy patients.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Kaiser, dental and vision

    Cons

    Horrible management. You can tell employees hate there jobs. HR doesn’t protect employees. Constant drama. I had a supervisor that would constantly yell and cuss during meetings. If you ever make one little mistake they threaten you but supervisors are allowed to be shady and make big mistakes and CEO and HR cover up

    I worked at Foothill Community Health Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Foothill Community Health Center (FCHC) provides young graduates with the opportunity to gain experience. The comprehensiveness of FCHC is wonderful for patients. Some of the providers are great!

    Cons

    A lot of the staff seem disgruntled most of the time and patients notice it. Medical assistants at the front are not the most welcoming people. Because FCHC is a federally qualified health center that exists to serve medically underserved communities who mostly have no to low-income, it is unfortunate that I felt as though patients were not receiving quality care. Supervisor was not great. Not a place for innovation or...
