    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Supervisors/team were great. Very supportive, productive and efficient.

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch with boots on the ground. I find this is typical of most non-profits, however.

    I worked at William F. Ryan Community Health Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    none to mention... none at all.

    Cons

    Worst ghetto clinic ever. I literally saw a nurse put a needle in a patient that could not speak English and was listening to salsa music. The worst!

    Advice to Management

    try caring.

    Pros

    Excellent benefit package and salary.

    Cons

    Workplace bullies are allowed to wreak havoc on other employees. Bullies hide behind the union to protect themselves and attack other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to strengthen policy's to prevent bullies from getting away with attacks on other employees.

    I worked at William F. Ryan Community Health Center full-time

    Pros

    The staff at the Ryan network are incredibly passionate and committed to providing patients with the best care. The work environment is fun and easy-going for those not in management.

    Cons

    Programs can be incredibly disorganized with little communication and coordination between departments. There also is high turnover in management.

    Pros

    Not a good place to work if you would like advance in your career. Seems like it was a cutthroat environment. Anything good? None

    Cons

    Horrible experience and I would have never left my previous position to join this company. I felt as if they played the old switch and bait on me.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together or you will continue to have former employees come to this site and make it hard to retain and attract quality employees

    I worked at William F. Ryan Community Health Center (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great location, Close to public transportation

    Cons

    Management lie about how vacation truly works (you get 2 weeks vacation for the first 2 years and then 2 more), I was told i would have 4 weeks vacation (so i left a job with 4 weeks vacation to go to 2 weeks). To much politics going on. Management does not respect you. No careet opportunities

    Advice to Management

    The turnover rate is ridiculous. Dont lie about vacation when asked multiple times. Have an open door policy

    I have been working at William F. Ryan Community Health Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    IT Dept is an awesome and easy going team. Staff can be very welcoming. Good initiatives meant to really improve urgent care provision. Compensation is typically better than at other FQHCs or city positions.

    Cons

    The administration perpetuates a culture of fear, often intimidating staff passively.
    Lack of operational organization; HR dept is highly disorganized and hard to deal with; often catty environment; lack of focus on organizational unity, it's every man for himself. Can be difficult to move up/around in the org if not in the union because of red tape in place by HR and admin overlords. Lack of oversight and managerial support.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a stronger focus on proper patient care and less focus on enabling union staff to the detriment of non-union workers.

  8. "Great staff, often willing to assist in any matter. Safe and clean environment with a well maintained work space."

    Pros

    9-5 no overtime. Close to public transportation.

    Cons

    I agree with above posters. Administrators treat clinical staff like crap. There is no open door policy. Communication sucks. As much as I enjoy working with this population, there is no way I could stay here long term.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for growth in other fields.

    Advice to Management

    Personal growth/professional development program needed.
