    I worked at Holy Cross Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, building always clean, flexibility, and overall positive experience.

    Cons

    Employee health ladies do not listen and think they know everything. I think they forget that everyone working there has some type of health or public health background. I test positive for TB skin test and told them. Instead of believing me and just allowing me to take an x-ray, they forced me to take the skin test which was very painful because of the reaction.

    I worked at Holy Cross Health full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful culture, great colleagues, leadership truly believes in the mission, amazing uninsured health centers

    Cons

    Poor worklife balance, non existent leadership pipeline despite creating a leadership development program, stale strategy which has led to the organization losing out on revenue opportunities (telehealth, physician practices, urgent care, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Truly walk the walk with your ideology regarding diversity and wanting to retain top talent. People of color are leaving in droves due to an unsupportive environment, WASP leadership team who only believe in promoting people who look like them, and below market pay.

    Pros

    Ability to work independently
    Minimal interaction
    Self regulate workload

    Cons

    Too much division, secrecy, back-stabbing and undermining by managers who abuse their power. Majority are aging women with no exciting personal life who come to work to start sit, gossip, and start trouble. They fail miserably at getting actual work accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Seek mental help
