    I have been working at Lone Star Circle of Care

    Pros

    In recent years the corporate culture change has been phenomenal. The previous administration was awful and uncaring. Clinicians are in the lead now and things are looking up.

    Cons

    Difficult to get administration to remember the mission, but that is changing.

    I worked at Lone Star Circle of Care full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good mission. Serves a specific need in the community, or at lease it supposed to. People tha provide direct care to patients, do care.

    Cons

    Unsafe practice. Most medical professionals leave because of patient safety issues, or because the schedule is no manageable. Educated professionals on the medical field are disregarded, disrespected and they simply quit. I have never seen so much burnout and constant new people in any place I have provided my services before.

    I have been working at Lone Star Circle of Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Having the ability to work on the cutting edge of health care reform in a patient focused atmosphere with co-workers who are capable and mission focused as well as the ability to advance in the organization are very important.

    Cons

    The health care industry is in a state of flux and the environment is fact paced and full of uncertainty - this applies at Lone Star as well. You have to enjoy the roller coaster and not the carousel to thrive in health care today.

    Pros

    Great pay. Great location. Great mission and vision. Serves people that desperately need healthcare.

    Cons

    Upper management has no business running a healthcare business. They are all about the money and do not care about quality healthcare. They are unethical. I truly believe that some of their processes are illegal with regards to Medicare/Medicaid. For a non-profit organization, they spend WAY too much money on their salaries and offices / furnishings.

    I worked at Lone Star Circle of Care full-time

    Pros

    Great place to learn and wear multiple hats. Well known in community and provide great health care to anyone.

    Cons

    Lack of honesty, no work life balance, no loyalty, staff have mentality of an eye for an eye. If you don't know someone high in the ranks, you're out.

    I have been working at Lone Star Circle of Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great mission and vision. Good place for unreserved and uninsured. Good hr orientation process Great automated payroll system

    Cons

    Lack of proper leadership in management to support mission. Patients are the ones who suffer. Give proper support to providers so they won't leave. The patients need the care. Take care to remember the mission.

    I have been working at Lone Star Circle of Care full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, great providers, nice facility

    Cons

    Too many providers getting promotions at the expense of patients. These are patients who are uninsured, underinsured, low-income, homeless... these are the "forgotten", the ones that need care the most and they're getting rescheduled time and time again with other doctors because so many doctors are leaving or are getting promoted. Patients need stability and they're not getting it here. 3 doctors leave and the newly hired doctor takes on 3 doctors-load of patients. We cannot provide the level of care we know we can by doing this. The company wins with revenue, but more importantly, our patients lose.

    I worked at Lone Star Circle of Care full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great mission Great facilities Great doctors and nurses Great upward mobility Good place for young professionals with no experience and the right education or connections to be quickly promoted to leadership and highly paid positions.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company is not so much focused on the mission as it is on money and community prestige. The salaries at the top levels are pretty high for an organization that is committed to those without monetary resources. Also, there are significant numbers of highly-paid, young senior leaders while the clinics are not staffed nearly so well. For example, at last count, the 500 or so employee organization had 5 attorneys. It is sad to see it continue to succeed with somewhat shady business practices. Not a good place for those truly interested in great patient care.

    I have been working at Lone Star Circle of Care

    Pros

    Nonprofit Structure, Competitive Pay, Large Organization with various intersections which allow employees to cross into alternate positions and fields, Nice facilities

    Cons

    Incompetent, greedy (bordering on gluttonous) upper management, who create a trickle-down effect of negative energy that pervades every part of what would otherwise be a pure mission to care for the less able. Billing practices and nonprofit mission should be audited by the federal government since so much of the funding for this organization comes from federal grants--it is just a massive, unwieldy waste of taxpayer dollars.
