    Pros

    Amazing opportunities to work with the underserved in the Oakland Area. Our patient come a broad spectrum from homeless to working class.

    Cons

    The organizations leadership in our "Admin" office are not focused on servicing our patients' and communities needs. As a provider who lives in the community in Oakland, I am so disappointed in the leadership teams. Especially our CMO and CEO-- they are out of touch with the needs of the community. In my several years of working here, I have seen well intended initiative after initiative die slow deaths because they are out of touch on how deliver sustainable quality healthcare. The board is asleep at the wheel, rubber stamping the absentee CEO/CMO-- running on presumptions of effectiveness (Lynch) that are our decades old.

    Advice to Management

    A new board that holds executives accountable for delivery of high quality care. Culture that promotes investment in providers, instead burning through NPs like they are expendable.

    Pros

    Org with passionate people for a good cause (healthcare for the underserved). Size has grown quickly in the last few years, which has opened up lots of job opportunities.

    Cons

    Infrastructure not keeping up with growth, and it's hard to know what's going on in departments and/or sites outside of your own. Pay could be higher.

    I worked at LifeLong Medical Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a grass-roots not-for-profit. I reported to the former COO at the time, I wish that I had stayed on long enough so that I could report to her successor, who was previously a Clinic Director and had amazing people skills. Sadly, she moved on as well. All in all, the clinic managers were really respectful and hungry for assistance from HR. I always felt their support and respect.

    Cons

    The former COO was a penny-pincher. I was yelled at for putting together a procedures manual for the clinic managers / directors, and using 6 binders. I was told that I needed to be more cost conscious! At the time, did not receive a lot of support from her, and there were employee relations issues every day. A pat on the back, or a genuine, "How are you coping?" would have probably kept me there. As they say, "you don't leave your job, you leave your manager".

    Advice to Management

    Give your leadership team the tools they need to support their staff.

    Pros

    Population of patients is rewarding to work with. Community of patients is the biggest reason to work there. Clinics are located in good locations

    Cons

    CMO, Eric Henley, does not support clinicians. Does not do any clinical work himself and focuses on increasing visits and not quality of care. Administrative waste is excessive and the organization rides the backs of clinicians to increase revenue when there is a short fall-- while administrators are sanctimonious about the need for clinicians to sacrifice-- while they do not. Little clinical support, high turnover of staff. Mostly the people that stick around are stuck repaying loans under service obligation or are end of career.

    Advice to Management

    New leadership in the c-suite

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, willing to accommodate people with children, going to school, etc. good at hiring from within and promoting current staff. Federal Loan forgiveness.

    Cons

    Horrible pay! High staff turnover, poorly managed finances.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize your clinical staff on the front lines. Consider a program with local universities to bring in student nurses, residents and keep them! Marty needs to retire, need some new outlook!
