High stress place to work, but fun at times.

Some of the managers were highly unprofessional at times when dealing with staff who often found it difficult to work efficiently when they were around. I believe education and training in the ways of leading people would have been beneficial not only to those in charge, but for those who worked for them. Yelling in a person's face in front of others was a practice I observed more than once. While they were very good at networking and getting donations from sponsors for the organization, they were not employee friendly at all. I believe that these qualities are what led to a VERY HIGH turnover rate at that time, which is very costly to an organization.
My immediate supervisor was very professional and did everything in her power to assist and encourage me to succeed in my position.
In spite of my less than favorable opinion, I enjoyed working there because of the staff and their dedication to give the best possible healthcare to their patients.
