    I have been working at eHealth Initiative part-time

    Pros

    Everyone in the office is very laid back. Professional.

    Cons

    Part time contracts only. Being the sole developer, you have to multitask projects and you are your own development team

    Pros

    Gain knowledge and make connections within health IT industry

    Cons

    With few exceptions, the organization needs to reboot, beginning with senior leadership, board oversight, and governance. There's a reason there's such high turnover over the years - and while recent management has improved slightly, there is a strong lack of vision, mission, and strategy coming from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful of staff, and more strategic in planning.

    none, all the good people left.

    Cons

    More than 100% staff turnover regularly due to mismgmt, poor ldrship and bad priorities and loss of mission.

    Advice to Management

    Bd of Director should get an entire new ldrship group or just fold the entire organization.

    I worked at eHealth Initiative full-time

    Pros

    flexible schedule, good benefits...that's about it. I did make some friends at the organization

    Cons

    Poor Management and Leadership. Leadership is not held accountable from anywhere so there is rampant poor treatment of lower staff and condescending behavior. If you have an opinion other than one held by leadership it is not necessarily well received. Employees are not valued to their true potential hindering a learning and cooperative environment. There is no forward strategic thinking more just putting band-aids over problems when they arise. Everything seems to be a scramble or just throwing things up against the walls to see if they stick. No involvement from the board to help with leadership accountability or even just the general direction of the company. There has truly been a loss of mission.

    Advice to Management

    Please take some management classes and learn how to treat your staff better. Invest in your employees because they are the ones that will help the company profit. Rolling your staff over every 6months-1 year is a sign there is a major problem. Lack of staff being truthful about their reasons for leaving does hinder leadership not recognizing their behavior.

    I worked at eHealth Initiative full-time

    Pros

    Important, growing space within healthcare and policy. Given the breadth and scope of focus, it has the potential to be a wonderful space for younger employees to learn and interface with the large base of eHI members. Generally a lowkey environment, though the workflow can change.

    Cons

    eHI can be crippled at times by poor senior management and a non-existent board. The average turnover of junior employees is around 6-8 months and although management generally tries to avoid conflict, it does not treat its employees respectfully with responsibilities appropriate to their background, training, and/or experience.
