More Pros and Cons

  1. "great place to work in community medicine"

    • Work/Life Balance

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    -get to work in public health in a city (instead of rural environment) if that is where you want to live
    -really great benefits - lots of leave (sick and vacation are separate), first place I ever worked that had health insurance
    -hours are set. I am 8-4:30 without evenings, but if you want to do evenings or weekends you can get paid more
    -patients are extremely appreciative

    Cons

    -public health is not for everyone (can be very draining), but this is the best place I've been after working 7 other places, and I think I have it better off than my friends in other public health offices
    -in the past people were promoted what seemed like based on who they knew...and not necessarily merit
    -you need to have good time management and "make the system" work for you - if you are coming in weekends and evenings to finish your work, you will sink instead of swim here

    Advice to Management

    continue to listen to employees to make things better , especially those ones who have stuck it out for longer

    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
