Pros: flexible work schedule, excellent benefits, competitive pay
Cons: new leadership, majority of the staff is clinical and so administrative departments are all but ignored.
Working for a non-profit healthcare organization is rewarding on so many levels. Working in the Development Department is particularly rewarding as well offering some very educational challenges. As the Acting Special Events Manager, I get to plan events to raise money for Capital Caring and help to further the mission to "simply improve care." My co-workers are all very dedicated and knowledgeable in their positions. We have new leadership in our department and that has been a challenge, as you might imagine, but I think the department will be better for it in the long run.
Being a health care organization, I find that the CEO and Communications and Marketing department seem to be focused solely on the clinical side of the organization. At all-staff meetings, we "administrative" folks are often left out of the discussions and that is a little disheartening.
