Nurse Practitioner, Urgent Care (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – August 21, 2018
If you're a new graduate looking to get your first job this is a decent place to start. The compensation and schedule is great. Very difficult population of patients. Very stressful job. Management is not responsive to feedback and very slow at making change.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – January 17, 2019
Management is not organized, utilizing staff and moving everyone around on a whim. No clear direction, no respect for staff. Always short staffed, and putting burden on staff on floor. No one is happy.
poor management/be prepared to micromanage employees
Health Care Provider (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – November 24, 2018
Cons - Awful management and poor leadership - expect to micromanage the staff as they are also poorly trained - recently hiring multiple employees in upper management who are clueless to actual needs of the clinical staff - no room for growth unless you are best friends with upper management - the employees are underpaid, overworked, understaffed thus leading to burnout and high turnover rates for all different positions
Pros - great job security as employees who should have been fired are still employed - hours can be flexible if needed - It's next to Rosie's cafe
Current Employee (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – August 22, 2018
I wouldn’t recommend LCHC as a place to start career especially if a college student or recent graduate. Management doesn’t truly care and accepts constant turnover as a given so they don’t put any effort into improving conditions for staff. Long days, high stress, little pay, little to no support.
MEDICAL ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – August 12, 2018
Everyone is great to work with as long they cooperate with each other. There are times when the phone is ringing, nobody would pick up or the call center transfer the call to the wrong department which tends to happen quite often. If the call center transfer the call to correct departments, I think there wouldn't be any problems or slow down the nurses when picking up the phone. Also if the community center offer better pay salary/ gives pay raise, people wouldn't be leaving.
Patient Account Representative I (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – June 24, 2018
Posting payments for most of my day and also posting patient payments via money orders or credit card The management didn't compensate you when we had deadlines to meet and we did them. the most enjoyable part was my co workers hardest part of the job was not having your boss's back.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – June 13, 2018
patients were hard but fun, you learned to be apart of a community .defiantly like high school drama and bullying daily because of titles . I mean since I left a lot of people quit so maybe its much better and the staff is treated right .I cried everyday and felt horrible because I was treated so bad .
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – May 25, 2018
I love working for Lowell CHC. This community gives so much and you know that you're making a difference working for this organization. Everyone are very supportive of each other and we all have one goal in common, which is to serve the community for the better.
Leader (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – May 4, 2018
I was a peer leader at TeenBLOCK LCHC. It was a positive and friendly environment for teens from the high schools to come and enjoy. There are many different programs you can join to learn about different cultures, college readiness, dance, expressive art, etc. The hardest part was planning events back to back. The most enjoyable would be seeing all the teens and staff together, enjoying each others' presence.
HIV Medical Case Manager (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – January 22, 2018
good place to work for especially if you are looking for a fast paced environment. you get to meet different kind of people and be able to help them in all aspects of there life. The hardest thing about working at LCHC is when a person passes away that you have a connection with and have been working with to help them better they're life.
health benefits, insurance discounts and great oppertunity to learn and grow
HIV/HCV Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – October 26, 2017
I have learned a lot about different cultures working here, and I do feel they provide great service for the community. However management is not great staff are underpaid and unappreciated. Most days we are short staffed because they can not keep their employees.
Administrative (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – September 9, 2017
N/A Overall not bad. Pretty flexible, like many companies they have their flaws that needs to fix. Also, like many other companies they are always looking to expand and not fixing the issues that are in front of them
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – September 2, 2017
I would not recommend the place to work the environment is very unprofessional the management sucks as well as the HR department the pay is horrible I feel like everyone is under paid and they are short staffed so you work hard extra hours and no one achknowledges you
Charge Nurse (FAMILY MEDICINE) (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – July 7, 2017
very fast environment, a lot to learn about primary care, very diverse community. The hardest part about the job is every patient is seen even if late. That puts the entire clinic behind. Also, they ask a lot of each employee and the pay is terrible.
