    I worked at PHFE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly HR, great life work balance. As long as you don't work within PHFE but as a contractor for another company it's all good.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and inflexible - they are set in their ways and there is no wiggle room to adjust contracts to fit lifestyle

    Advice to Management

    Leave more room for flexibility

    This agency is active in many areas of public health and truly makes a difference in people's lives. It is a great agency to work for and many wonderful opportunities.

    Would be great to have a few more lunch options.

    I have been working at PHFE

    Pros

    Good way to get your foot in the door at the local health department without getting union dues taken out of your pay!

    Cons

    PHFE employees are contractors and do not reap benefits of working at the health department like stable employment or unions.

    "PHFE HQ"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at PHFE full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility with hours, most co-workers are nice to work with. I had a good expirience with my management team, but I hear others where not as fortunate.

    Cons

    The organization underwent lots of changes and I do not think management was prepared for them. I don't fell that the employees are always appreciated as they should be and compensation was not competitive (in certain departments) I also think there are people who are useless and their positions are eating up a salary that could go toward someone who actually does work that contributes to the organizations success

    Advice to Management

    Look to those employees who have been with the organization for a long time. Re evaluate your pay structure...

    I have been working at PHFE

    Pros

    Great benefits, great placements to get your foot in the door with public health.

    Cons

    Require online hour submission and time off requests. Unfortunately the online system is often glitchy and slow running.

    I have been working at PHFE full-time

    Pros

    PHFE is a non-profit focused on both initiating and supporting public health programs (it is rewarding to be a part of this). For the most part PHFE staff are friendly warm people. Benefits are very good (salary mediocre).

    Cons

    Salary (low for position type & low for hours worked). At times PHFE will work its employees like an investment bank or national accounting firm. It is great that PHFE is growing but it should make more of an effort to support its employees as it grows. CEO seems to support work-life balance but there is no oversight to ensure work life balance is actually protected. PHFE seems to jump into new systems and structures...

    Advice to Management

    1) Incentivize middle-management to actually support work-life balance for their team by tracking actual hours worked and setting up a bonus system for managers who do best at keeping their employees hours under 10-hours a day and with the fewest weekends worked (while still getting necessary work done). This promotes efficiency and should lead to better employee satisfaction and lower turnover. No one at PHFE would deny...

    I have been working at PHFE full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Pay is good

    Cons

    Bad Policies, Upper Management is unfair

    Advice to Management

    Need to let the new wave of ideas in. Older employees are out of touch.
