Stressful and Hostile
Oncology (Former Employee) –  Titusville, FLDecember 16, 2017
Management is absolutely incompetent. There is no solid schedule. One day you work one site and the next another but you aren't told until AFTER you have gone home for the day.
Policies are constantly being "changed" to fit the agenda of management. The rules only apply to certain people. There is zero HR support in regards to employee relations. There is no accountability. Employees are spoken to in the most derogatory and condescending manner possible with zero repercussion.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons

UI Lead (Former Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 6, 2017
good job to learn a lot from the team and work collaboratively. Working with multiple offshore teams enhances the skill. Team outing and team lunches makes a lot of fun

Not employee friendly
Paramedic (Current Employee) –  Melbourne, FLNovember 27, 2017
Poor management and the company claims to be employee friendly when they aren't really. There seems to be poor management from the top down with poor decision making and the lack of accountability.

Administrative Coordinator (Temporary) (Current Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 10, 2017
Nice place to work and grow. Friendly and patient employees. You can learn and advance. I think in general the pay is a bit low but if u have a spouse or roommate, it'll be okay.

Great place
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) –  Merritt Island, FLNovember 1, 2017
I, along with many other friends, work for health first. Location is everything though and so are your co-workers. Staff is usually pretty friendly, doctors amazing, and benefits pretty decent. Manager very workable and helpful.

Great benefits, low pay
Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  FloridaOctober 29, 2017
The job is a little easier at night, you will have time to collect your thoughts and chart between the hours of 12pm and 4am. Unfortunately, you will have12-13 patients (18 if someone calls out) and that can be very overwhelming at times. The shifts are 12 hours, but expect to be there for 13, and the shift isn’t anything to write home about. Luckily, you make a shift differential at night. The biggest issue is the nurses don’t help nearly as much as they should. They will call you to come into a room to change a patient they were just giving me a to instead of doing it themselves, despite already being in the middle of something.
Pros
Discount on scrubs through Health first, good benefits
Cons
Low pay, stressful, heavy patient load, useless staff

Low pay but great people
CNA/HUC (Current Employee) –  Viera, FLOctober 24, 2017
You get paid tragically low for the hours worked and for the things you have to do. You also have to take trash out at end of shift as if you're the house keeping staff. Very unlikely that management will improve. They do not tend to bend to well with your schedule.
Pros
Interactive
Cons
pay

Infusion Nurse/ Triage Nurse (Current Employee) –  FLOctober 17, 2017
Health first has many job opportunities. The stand alone offices do not pay holidays, it is included in your vacation time. Patients were great. I have never worked at the hospital.

Ever changing
ASSISTANT SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, FLOctober 17, 2017
Lab personnel were ever changing. Very hard workloads and stress caused many of the techs to go find jobs in a less busy atmosphere and in addition they had impossible turn around times.

My typical day
Health unit coordinator (Former Employee) –  Melbourne, FLOctober 16, 2017
I loved working for health first but I was only per diem which means that I didn't get any benefits and I was working at the hospital so at that time they didn't have any positions for me. So I had to go else where to look for full time. But the opportunities where great here I hated to leave.

Very bad Upper Management
Management (Current Employee) –  Brevard ContyOctober 15, 2017
The Medical Group cares more about making a dollar than they do about their employees. Upper Management has zero leadership! They tell you that you can ask questions but when you do you'll get counciled on it. Work life balance was good but no room for advancement. The doctors run the show, not the leadership. They do what they want and nothing happens to them, not all but most... the staff were excellent but no they are indispensable, which brings moral down. Managers run multi million dollar practices and most barely make $50k/yr, very sad for the stress they have. Do not recommend this place at all..CEO was pretty cool.
Pros

Cons
Upper leadership, low pay, most doctors think they are God!

Manager (Former Employee) –  Rockledge, FLOctober 11, 2017
A deep sense of community and focus on what is important to consumers is at the heart of what it takes to be a successful organization. The people who make up the Health First organization, and culture, take into account the well being of the community through access, service, and re-investment in local needs.

Health First has been a support of family needs. They also try to motivate employee, and encourage them to continue to grow. They also encourage employees to participate in LEAN classes.

PCU RN (Current Employee) –  Melbourne, FLOctober 1, 2017
I feel health first truly cares about their employees. Resource team offers a lot of flexibility with shift hours, and keeps it interesting by floating to all hospitals.

Love the place
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) –  Palm Bay, FLSeptember 30, 2017
Working in the hospital was very rewarding. At times it was difficult but only because we are not God and seeing people sick is hurtful, but we try to give some quality of life back to them. So if we put a smile on their faces then that was a lot
Pros
room for growth
Cons

Great job, good pay
Member Services (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FLSeptember 11, 2017
The job itself was stressful, but the pay and bonuses were great for your hard work. You're basically a social worker. Job stability very low. You're graded every month on your phone calls. Stressful.
Pros
Provide lunch every now and then. Perfect insurance benefits.
Cons
Get fired easily. Very Micromanaged.
