    I have been working at Health Leads full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Health Leads is unlike an organization I've ever be a part of. I'm impressed that so many in the organization are so committed to the mission. Values come up a lot and I feel like the organization is genuinely guided by them. I also love the people on my team! They are compassionate, intelligent, kind, dedicated and absolute pleasures to work with it!

    Health Leads also has awesome benefits and flexible working arrangements as far as work from home set ups.

    Cons

    As an entry level person, I don't see any growth opportunities in my position. And because of this, I don't think I'll be here for more than 2 years or so. As with all nonprofits the pay is very low when compared to similar jobs in the private sector. Health Leads also restructures itself pretty regularly and this of course leads to low sense of job security. I also don't think Health Leads' professed commitment to diversity is reflected in the demographics of its staff.

    I worked at Health Leads full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing mission, incredible coworkers and an opportunity to help shape how health care is delivered in this country, with a focus on social determinants of health. A great, entry-level opportunity for those looking to have a managerial role in health care.

    Cons

    Little to no opportunities for professional growth, so don't expect to stay longer than a few years, at most.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to cultivate those program managers who want to stay and be involved in the organization long-term.

    Pros

    Flexible Hours
    Very meaningful work
    The surrounding atmosphere
    Great management, from top to bottom
    Caters to the needs of the local community, not a one-size fits all approach

    Cons

    Psychologically demanding work with families

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of opening new locations! Just make sure to carefully select the managers for each desk as I have had experiences with a bad desk manager in the organization.

    Pros

    Really great opportunity to work with other engaged and passionate people. Have the opportunity to work with directly with patients and refer to community resources.

    Cons

    The organization is often changing their model which can be disruptive with major reorganizations. Sometimes a gap between the work on the ground and understanding of it on higher levels.

    I worked at Health Leads (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Health Leads are hard working and have a positive attitude. The upper management is always available to assist you.

    Cons

    None really! As volunteer, you will gain some valuable experience. The only con might be that It may not be for everyone. Your primary duty is to connect patients to services responding to their needs. Therefore, you will have to make phone calls, make appointments for them.
