    I worked at San Ysidro Health Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    OK for gaining experience
    Good first time employment opportunity
    Mission statement is admirable

    Cons

    >Mid- and upper management plays favorites; some employees were castigated for the same things that were overlooked when "favorites" did them
    >Non-Hispanics are ignored or treated with disrespect
    >Hourly employees are underappreciated, underpaid (no bonuses for hourly paid staff!)
    >Efforts to improve employee relations/productivity were for appearances sake, only. No lasting changes were effected (perhaps because methods used were meaningless)

    Advice to Management

    Respect every employee.
    Recognize that praise for a job well done belongs more to employees than to managers.
    Remember that praise should be public, but correction should be private!
