    Risky environment for new provider

    Jun 28, 2022 - Family Nurse Practitioner 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You will be in a position to become acquainted with people within the community & you will gain a lot of experience with a variety of patients. 4 day work week for providers is great (benefit of Union advocacy)

    Cons

    I was not supported as a new provider. I was always made to feel like my voice was heard when I advocated for improvement, but I ultimately left when I realized it wasn’t. My license, certification, and my patients were at risk. Workload is impossible for anyone. If you are competent, you will be tasked with more without a return on investment. Political environment- minimal opportunity for upward mobility unless you play this card well. Outwardly “socially-aware” culture, but terrible internal practices.

    Difficult Job, Good Benefits

    Feb 25, 2022 - Case Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits, your union goes to bat for you. Scheduled raises. Ability to work independently, remote or in the office. It's a job you can feel good about doing.

    Cons

    Pay is not high enough for the amount of work. High caseloads, you may not feel valued by your superiors. Clients often have unrealistic expectations of what you can do for them. Burnout is high, there's high turnover and thus caseloads are constantly shifting. Rules are constantly changing and evolving and often make no sense.

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with. Much diversity in staff who are all incredible humans with love for the hard work they do. Pay was decent and benefits great. Lots of training opportunities as well. A lot of county staff moved around to try out different positions so they could still stay at the county.

    Cons

    Some of the buildings could use a major revamp but they're leased so not much can be done. There did seem to be some politics when it came to hiring or moving around.

    Political environment where bad employees are allowed to run a muck without accountability or repercussions. Union acts in bad faith to stir up problems to score political points for their causes. Culture of malicious gossip and high school antics.
