    Pros

    Great mission, I love our patients. My personal supervisor tries hard to make employees feel valued. Good medical coverage, some education benefits

    Cons

    Any projects take eons to be approved by higher ups. Our clinic lacks basic things and is very unattractive. LC is a huge organization that is more focused on being safe than expanding and improving services

    Advice to Management

    Check in with the employees who do the day to day grind on the clinic floor, management seems out of touch with the reality.

    Pros

    La Clinica is committed to the community and the diverse population we serve. I feel that work-life balance is encouraged and supported. The health benefits are really great/rich.

    Cons

    Since this is a non-profit, at times you need to be able to wear different hats and really be able to master the art of multi-tasking. Overall I believe that my experience here is very rewarding.

    more spanish speakers in supervisor roles.

    Pros

    Multiple locations and departments to work in, tendency to promote from within, generous education leave, okay benefits, support for management training, dedicated employees committed to mission, must love Latino culture, even though clinics serve all groups, provide services to those who can't afford them otherwise, including undocumented immigrants

    Cons

    Poor vacation benefits, intermittent salary freezes, manager effectiveness varies from department to department, so do the attitudes of employees, non-Latinos should be prepared to deal with an organization still learning to incorporate non-Latinos

    Advice to Management

    Build the cultural competence of your staff in dealing with patients and co-workers.
    Support flexible work schedules.
    Improve salaries.

    Cons

    Non-profit salaries, sometimes unwilling to look at blind spots or hold people accountable, uneven customer service, long wait times in some clinics, could benefit from more funding to accelerate improvements
