    I have been working at Unity Health Care full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The medical benefits are good compared to others. It is a great place to start a career or get experience in health care.

    Cons

    Reactive versus preventive mindset when approaching organizational issues. Launches projects without utilizing actual project management methodologies. Clinical staff (particularly nurses & MAs) do not have adequate representation in upper level leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Take the focus off how much money the providers can bring in and place some of it on taking better care of the clinical staff.
    Develop a more projectized mindset when launching new programs & projects

    I worked at Unity Health Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Convenient location, and the on site parking (Parkside Location).

    Vacation and Sick Leave instead of a combined PTO accrual.

    Cons

    Where to begin?

    Management is a joke! Health center directors are self centered and avoid any and every patient concern. They have no problem overworking their staff, and even if you do bring up your concerns they brush them off. Corporate management is non existent, the training they provide is useless because the staff providing the training are uneducated. Oh, and no room for growth.

    Providers see an alarming number of patients day to day, which leads to them becoming desensitized, and in turn affects patient care.

    A good percentage of the staff members (LPN's, MA's, PRC's) are ill mannered, uneducated, and flat out rude. In order to "fit-in" you have to dumb down to their level (and slang) or else you're perceived as stuck up on too good to work there. They also bad mouth their patients in front of OTHER patients and staff members.

    It's an absolute shame to see what they've become, poor Dr. Goetcheus.

    Advice to Management

    In order to truly steer this back to where it began you would need fire a good chunk of your staff and hire caring individuals who aren't just there for a paycheck, essentially start all over again. Even if you were to slowly hire those individuals they will be put off and discouraged by the bad seeds that already work there. Unfortunately, Unity may never be able to return to that initial vision, it's been washed out by terrible individuals.

    "Oh so close but yet so far."

    Pros

    The employees work so hard and try to be the very best. No thanks to the management they are as close as they can get. The doctors are the best around and listen to the employees. Good 401k

    Cons

    The one thing between fantastic and Unity is the cliche of management. They are too micromanaging and telling e done they don't see the big picture, that they already missed the big picture. Great peoole leave there because they are unappreciated, underpaid, and to much power is given to one person who likes the power a little to much. UNDERPAID oh and did i mention UNDERPAID FOR WHAT THEY DO?

    Advice to Management

    Doctors you have amazing people working here. Listen to them when they talk about what they need. Step up to the plate you give all the power to two people who don't care to have the respect of their employees. Therefore you lose alot of greatness and NO THEY CANT BE REPLACED BY JUST ANYONE. Those people are a reflection of your practices. Treat them like gold. From MA to RN to LPN and don't get me started on the knowledge of the techs. Respect all of them and keep them Continue to underpay your employees soon you'll have underpaid employee effort. You're great.
