    I worked at Public Health Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Gained extensive experience in working with different populations

    Cons

    The daily/monthly unit requirement was unrealistic because of all of the other paperwork that is involved. This put a lot of pressure on the employees which caused a lot of discouragement on the employees and did not allow for employee to do their job effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new staff.

    I worked at Public Health Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment and decent pay. Reimbursement for transportation. Decent health insurance. Good stepping stone for recent grads but not those with higher degrees.

    Cons

    Micromanagement lack of cooperation from supervisors. Feels like lack of confidence. Gives you a false impression that they are on ur side but in reality u don't have any support from management. Supervisor are less informed than staff. Keep adding last minute rules as if one is a child. Extremely disappointment. Would not recommend. Plus they change u to cases in places that are possibly dangerous. It feels like a high school more so than a job and when you stand up they ignore you or accuse you of being someone else.

    Advice to Management

    Better training and cooperation from management

    People who work there are committed to public health and to the organization. Interesting work with meld of research, service delivery, and contracting. Some units function better than others.

    Recent change in leadership, with longtime president recently retired.
    Little turnover, which means salaries are low.

    I have been working at Public Health Solutions (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best part of PHS is the passionate and talented staff. I am inspired by my colleagues and fulfilled in contributing to a mission of helping others. Exciting work being done in the public health arena. Very generous PTO policy. My boss is very supportive and receptive to suggestions, and has contributed tremendously to my professional development and career goals. The leadership and guidance from my supervisor as well as other employees and management outside of my department has been unmatched from my former employers. Gained some valuable relationships during my time here thus far.

    Cons

    Largely grant funded which can present challenges.

    Too many cases. Raises were not given on time. High turn over of employees leaving the job before the six months.
