    Pros

    being able to help the community, by making a difference in their health. wonderful pt and families

    Cons

    unfortunally the hard working employee never gets recognize, some of the best promotions go to the ones the barely know how the clinics run. experience means almost nothing to managment.

    Advice to Management

    please come at least once a month to the different sites to talk and hear to the employees the work in the different departments from janitorial to supervisor

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

    Pros

    There are some truly amazing, committed, loving people that work at La Clinica. The culture does vary across sites (there are over 30 sites with over 1000 employees) but most people are there because they love the work and care about the community.

    Cons

    Some improvement warranted around efficiency and standardization.

    Pros

    Great support from supervisors, good benefits, pay is competitive for sector, great work environment, respect for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Hours are fairly rigid/no opportunity work from home, but this is common and expected in healthcare.

    I have been working at La Clinica de La Raza full-time

    Pros

    Dedicated employees. Mission driven. Grassroots. Administrative employees are able to flex their positions to fit their strengths. Dedicated to improving the skills of managers and supervisors. Seeks to hire from the communities it serves. Fair wages, especially for a nonprofit. The CEO is warm and approachable, as are most of the executives.

    Cons

    Needs to focus on bringing together executives, doctors, frontline workers, tech and facilities employees to reduced perceived preferential treatment and give all employees a company-wide perspective that is communicated not just from the top down, but from the ground up. But that is the case in most companies. The only reason I think it is more important to focus on it at LC is because of the history and mission of the organization.
    Needs to hire more diversely from the communities it serves. Sometimes gives potential newcomers the impression that it only serves Spanish speakers.

    Advice to Management

    Offer cross language classes where English speakers, Spanish speakers, and speakers of Asian languages are teaching each other. Encourage participation of employees at all levels of the organization. Start a two-way mentoring program for new employees, particularly ones from populations which are under-respresented in the organization.

    "Lots of good people, good work, and employee training. Mixed experience depending on where you work"

    Pros

    Flexibility in terms of multiple departments and locations if you have the kind of job needed around the organization. Lots of training opportunities, especially for the managers. Some departments have a strong family or community feeling. I think many managers try hard to do the right thing. Commitment to the community, employee wellness program, pretty good benefits, some buildings nice to work in.

    Cons

    Non profit pay scale. Can be super gossipy depending on the department. Management seems to have a hard time firing people who should be fired. Not always an emotionally healthy place too work. It depends a lot on your manager and how mature your co-workers are.

    Advice to Management

    Let us know what's going on more often. Hold managers accountable to support staff. Get rid of people who aren't helping our patients or are being respectful to patients or co-workers. Provide more employee training, vacation time and extended sick leave.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Community-based organization, hires and helps the community, full scope of health care services (medical, dental, vision, behavioral health) for those who most need it, welcomes anyone, dedicated to health care for all, including people without legal documents, strong support for professional development (80 hours of education leave per year)

    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

    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.
