    I have been working at Unity Health Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with so many great and committed people. Great mission of providing free or low-cost health care to homeless and indigent patients in DC.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy gets worse and worse, actually hampering the people on the front lines from doing their jobs. For physicians, part of their compensation starting next year will be provided as an incentive, the bulk of which is for seeing greater numbers of patients. Doctors hate this -- we are taking care of peoples' health. This takes time. Some doctors and some clinics are double and triple booked. They may get a big bonus but the patients will suffer. The organization runs on people paying back the National Health Service Corps, who leave after their 4 years of payback. So it doesn't really matter to management. Little is done to retain providers over the long haul, which is terrible for patients. Many bad-for-morale management decisions that are short sighted (many snow days last winter so management took away 3 holidays....very depressing especially for lower level workers like medical assistants who work really hard for very low pay).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the needs of front line workers -- Medical assistants, doctors, nurses -- and less on the bureaucracy. Actually listen to those employees and what they have to say. Do what will help improve actual patient care. Make your employees feel that you value their work and care about them as human beings.
