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

    Pros

    Connections with students, social sector impact, changing communities, project based work, time-off, lots of free food, autonomy, great place for future doctors

    Cons

    Finding true balance & pay. Working for HC is truly a great experience. The staff, leadership, and coordinators are all amazing people who are passionate about changing lives.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation & benefits could be a lot better.

    I worked at HealthCorps full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of any honestly.

    Cons

    If you're a sorority girl, this job is perfect for you. Just picture typical fake happy blonde atmosphere - for orientation, trainings, and monthly meetings.

    This is a typical entry level job where it seems they take kids who have just graduated college and don't know whether they want to go back to school and can't find a job they want just yet so they pretend it's this AMAZING company and you get to "Meet Dr. Oz!" when it is really just a company who doesn't do much - it's a face for Dr Oz to look good. In the only meeting where we actually got to meet Dr. Oz the CFO prepped us for him coming in and called us "volunteers". Like, I get it, he gets paid a lot for what he does - but to call us volunteers when we are the ones working every day in school was rude.

    Also, pay is poopy.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and pay just a little more (36K in NYC...ha.)

    I worked at HealthCorps full-time

    Pros

    The work is rewarding. It is a unique job that is tackling a huge issue. There are tons of resources provided. Everyone is passionate about wanting to make America healthy.

    Cons

    It is run more like a company than a nonprofit sometimes. Everyone is so spread out and there is a lot of communication issues. It is easy to feel disconnected from HC when you are not working in NYC. Everything is disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Have on central office for all management. It causes problems that everyone is working remotely. Or at least have a yearly meeting or something so that everyone can meet the people they work with.

    Pros

    A lot of autonomy and creative freedom.

    Cons

    Very little support can make it hard to feel effective and achieve goals. The expectations are set too high, but it is kind of an unspoken rule that you don't have to actually do everything they tell you to do, which is not very strategic.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on depth rather than breadth of impact with programming. Do not force every coordinator to attempt to run every programmatic component (be more upfront with expectations and flexibility from the beginning).

    I worked at HealthCorps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -You gain a lot of experience in different areas. Because you have a lot of responsibility, you gain valuable skills like teaching, leading meetings, planning events, mentoring, reporting, budgeting, etc. Having completed my two-year term, I feel like a very valuable candidate for other jobs.
    -You make great friends with awesome and inspiring co-workers, and fun and motivated students.
    -If you're passionate about health and wellness, this job let's you spend most of your waking hours talking about something you love, and making a concrete difference in an important field.
    -HealthCorps is getting better and better about making the employee experience a valuable one.

    Cons

    -Can be kind of disorganized, but I guess that's normal in a non-profit that's constantly growing and evolving.
    -Hard to have a work-life balance at times, but you just have to learn to not take work home.
    -Sometimes we're asked to do things on short-notice. But just be honest with your supervisor about how full your plate is.

    Advice to Management

    -Try to perfect this new 4-year model before making other significant changes. As Coordinators, it's really hard to keep up sometimes.
    -Please try to increase the salary, or have it based on the cost of living in different areas. Maybe even two fewer schools, and distribute that money to your different employees.
    -Please allow/encourage Coordinators to not do all program components. We are all different and have different strengths, and our schools are all different; I don't think we should all be expected to put on the same program in different schools.
