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

    Pros

    Fantastic, smart colleagues.
    Pretty good salaries for a nonprofit.
    Had the resources needed to do my job.
    My supervisor was excellent.
    Very mission-driven org.
    It can be a good opportunity to be with an org that's going through a lot of change.

    Cons

    Not all salaries were competitive.
    A bit of a divide between on-the-ground program staff and national headquarters - very different daily lives and work.
    Org works hard to not be super hierarchical (a good thing) but does not do this well in some ways and on certain teams.
    Did not feel supported at all by upper-level exec person who probably only lasted as long as they did because they had phenomenal people working under them and picking up the slack. Pretty sure top of org did not notice this for years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up a lot of what you're doing and being a great place to work. Get a handle on senior management and how exactly they're supporting their teams.

  3. "Advocate"

    I worked at Health Leads part-time

    Pros

    Exposure to social and public health issues
    Independent work
    Important cause

    Cons

    Little support or training that was useful. Thrown right into things and difficult to figure out exactly how to help clients when you were unfamiliar with application processes, eligibility issues etc.
    Perfection was expected, which was frustrating and incredibly stressful given the lack of time to adjust and lack of preparation
    Little mentoring or teaching from older, more experienced advocates

    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.
