NIH Pharmacy, Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Bethesda, MDSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: team spirit; excellent learning and training experience
A typical day at work involved the production of tablets & capsules and packing of other pharmaceutical products for use in Clinical Trials at the Clinical Center and other facilities within the National Institutes of Health. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with fellow employees, who had a strong Team Spirit. The interaction with – more... the Pharmacists, many of whom were assigned to the Public Health Corps, was invaluable. I learned of the key role that Pharmacy and other members of the healthcare team played in the delivery of healthcare, and that it is critical that all members of the healthcare team work collaboratively. This experience had a profound effect when I later attended and completed medical school. – less

Job in College
Program Analyst (Former Employee), Washington, DCJune 24, 2014
It was a just a job to help me get through college. However, I do remember that for the most part it's quiet and rather slow. If action and change is what you want, then you probably shouldn't go with this company. However, it's probably a great place if you prefer the slower pace.

Clinical staff nurse, Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Shiprock, NM Whiteriver, AZMarch 13, 2014
Pros: government benefits, incredible learning experience
Cons: indian preference, apathy
Worked at two different hospitals on different reservations from 1985-1996. Shiprock, NM & Whiteriver, AZ. Was my first nursing job and I am glad as I learned tons in part as these sites are so remote we had to do everything. I worked Med/Surg, ICU. and ER. Saw lots of trauma and severe infections. Collaboration could be challenging as regardless of – more... how much the natives loved you, you are never really one of them. I learned to be diplomatic and respectful. We had great medical staff but they are fresh out of school. You rely on your brain and intuition as services are often difficult to access. I have done so many things in my career partly because of IHS, There is no where you will get the experience you get on the Rez! – less

Dirty Clinic and Poor Health Standards!
RN Manager (Former Employee), San Jose CAFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: the only native american working there is the janitor...(i am not kidding)
Cons: everything
Stay away from this place!!!
I was employed here only 2 weeks. In that time I tried to get the employees to clean the rooms after every patient with bleach instead of just changing the paper on the beds. I was met with aggression and with excuses such as the smell of bleach gives the assistants a migrane. Patients were coming in with colds, disease – more... and infection and then well babies and elderly, one right after the other. The equipment was not being cleaned, the urine was being left on the counter for hours where newborn shots were prepared, and the staff ate in the same area. It was filthy. Instead of changing practice they let me go and I was happy to leave. – less
