It's all about the numbers, not about the patients
Nurse (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – March 15, 2016
The benefits are ok, however PTO is less than most health care providers and pay is lower than market. Management is all about making appointments shorter and shorter and cramming as much into those appointments as possible. The patients were the best part of the job, but there is hardly any time to see them.

Unfortunately this place does not care about their employees or their patients. Even though they talk patient care and being all about the patients, this is not true. It is very evident that the only thing this organization cares about are the numbers and how they can improve on getting the numbers higher every year. Therefore, the employees are overworked with getting patients in and out quickly which makes for poor patient care. The management does not support the employees and will tell you that anyone of us are expendable and can be replaced at any time. I think the bigger this company gets, the worse it cares for their employees and their patients. I only give it 1 star due to decent benefits which they try to make up from paying lower than average income.

I worked for this organization for way too long. It is all about the numbers and you are always understaffed. The MAs are under-trained, roam around without any leadership and are expected to do way too much. The nurses are non-existent. They burn them out quickly. The providers are overly stressed with all the unrealistic expectations. The leadership team is not supportive and blame everything on the staff. It is a dead end job and would not recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Great benefits, CEO is personable and inspirational
Cons: mgmt is unsupportive and lazy coworkers. there is another review on here that was written 6/2015 and really hits the nail on the head with my experience, unfortunately. I had high hopes for this organization.

If you are a nurse please keep looking elsewhere and don't even waste your time here. New graduates won't learn anything at community care; seasoned nurses get disrespected by staff and management (unless you belong to the management/nurse "gang"). Nurses are not valued or respected here. The turnover on nurses is staggering! A typical day at work is doing tasks sent by providers and getting pulled from your unit to work another unit you have no idea about due to all the MA call in's. Management does not support nurses, charge nurses or staff nurses. You will be wrong and blamed for issues before you are given a chance to voice your side. The staff at community care that are respectful and hard working are scant. The hardest part of the job was dealing with lazy co-workers and managers that give you zero support. The most enjoyable part - weekends off, no mandatory overtime and most holidays off. Look elsewhere, this place is not worth it.
the mission is excellent, however, it does not seem to be discussed much on a daily level. Like all companies there are really great people and then others that leave you looking quizzical and scratching your head.....company is going through a lot of changes that seem very good and stabilizing. The roots of the organization are in government and that mentality seems to be very prevalent. It's a slower moving culture and decision making seems to have to be approved at every level of the organization.
work out area equipped with treadmills, weight-balls, and mat; not fancy but does the job!

No person in their right mind should even consider working for Communitycare! This place treats patients like numbers and animals. The rudeness of employees is so disturbing. This is a dead end place, and such a bad influence for new graduates. I don't know how the government, who is funding this place, does not know or see the everyday drama. I guarantee these clinics would be shut down immediately! Stay away if you know what's good for you!
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – October 30, 2012
a typical day of work was to do the CLIA controls on hcg tests, urinalysis testing controls,Eye wash controls and glucose controls every morning, set up exam rooms and prepare rooms for examinations, check supply of birth control, stock all rooms with supplies, review the schedule for the day. I learned alot about the following departments: OBGYN,Family Practice & Internal Medicine when they gave me the chance to float Management was okay, the company was understaffed and had employees constantly floating to different clinics, which was a plus with me for my experience. I got along with all employees in my department and still do to this day. The hardest part of my job was when i was far along in my pregnancy things got a little tiring with my daily duties but i would take my breaks and get things done. The most enjoyable part of my job is how close i got to the physicans and nurse practioners they taught me alot about me being a medical assistant
got off early once physican schedule and daily duties were completed
