    I worked at La Clinica de La Raza full-time

    Pros

    Most staff care about the community we serve. Flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    Poor management and corruption all the way up. The upper management needs to go. Very low wages for hard work. Quality of care needs to improve. Everything is outdated. There is no investment in staff or education. Staff is burned out and bitter. Everyone is looking for a better job. Not only do I not recommend this place to work, I would not recommend this place for patients either. It needs to change.

    Advice to Management

    Major overhaul. You need new people who are up to date with technology, leadership and management and healthcare.

    I worked at La Clinica de La Raza full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Taking care of the patients and creating access to carr

    Cons

    Executive mismanagement, better management at some sites, an organization full of chaos, refusing to give staff yearly increase or cost of living raise

    Advice to Management

    The Board needs to look at the mismanagement of the organization, replace the executive team, Terminate staff directly related & reporting to executive member relative on Executive Team.


  5. "Good mission and values. Great population to serve."

    Pros

    Good mission and values. Great population to serve.

    By the time you finish working at La Clinica you will be an expert in charting and any new program will look to you like a breeze in it's charting demands.

    If you are an Intern, this will be a great place to work. Interns receive​ the best training and support, after that all changes.

    Cons

    Main people in management were elevated to positions as they were good therapists. They have no consistent basic management skills. They are very ambivalent and tentative in practice, though their talk might seem clear.

    Paper work is out of control and you will do more paper work than you will do in any other program, or county around the Bay Area. Management is aware of this.

    You will fall behind in paper work like many of us did. You will be blamed for falling behind in paper work.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce your paper work flooding, improve your human resources, reduce your gap between your talking and your doing. Increase
    the salaries, look around the Bay Area, rents and cost of living have increased.

    I have been working at La Clinica de La Raza full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most co-workers are pleasant and most are competent and committed. The organization does a lot of good in the Bay Area lower-income and disadvantaged communities.

    Cons

    Executive management overall is lacking and in some cases detrimental to the organization at its core. HR is definitely not on employees' side and one of the greatest obstacles to improvement. CFO makes flawed decisions. CEO is hardly present and doesn't seem to notice the company starting to crack.

    Advice to Management

    Question what you're told by upper management, stand up to bullying and BS, and stop viewing employees as the opposition.

  8. "Medical Assistant II"

    Pros

    It's a non profit organization

    Cons

    No pay increase. Too many responsibilities that are not even part of your role andnp pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    They don't pay good, they enslave people, it's a crappy place to work at, at least be nice, if you know that all of these people are being taken advantage change things , promote more team work , don't have favorite's, train your employees right.

    I have been working at La Clinica de La Raza (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility and providing direct services to the community but apart there's nothing else I can to the pros section. I'm just adding words to reach the 20 word minimum requirement.

    Cons

    Management, Communication, Office Ettiquette and management all around the company because the only thing managers do is create stress upon their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Go to trainings where you can learn how to manage a team.
