  2.  

    The division of NHS in which I work has been in a constant state of influx and transition for the last few years.

    I have been working at NHS Human Services full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It has a lot of potential to be a great provider of IDD services. There are many who would be great mentors if they had such a program

    Cons

    Employee morale is very low and it does not seem to be a concern for upper management. Too many unprofessional people in lower management positions. Not much is communicated down the pipeline when changes occur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee morale. Consider a mentoring program for entry level and lower level managers

    Pros

    Very enjoyable working with clients that need assistance.

    Management at my branch lacks knowledge of the clients, the overall scope of what needs to be done and has no morals.

    Fix the management.

    Former Employee - Fee for Service Therapist in Sharon Hill, PA

    I worked at NHS Human Services part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    A lot of dedicated employees/clinicians
    Strong upper management team
    Great place to learn and "get your feet wet" as a therapist
    There is always work available and the agency is always expanding

    Cons

    Everyone is overworked (especially supervisors)
    Low pay
    Constant changes to processes being made without proper training/follow-through
    Low morale in the work environment
    Poor communication between upper management and direct care staff
    Lots of turn-over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensating and communication between management and staff may lead to better retention.

    Not my favorite job but not the worst first-job-out-of-college

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor
    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I worked at NHS Human Services as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent for the area. Easy interview process

    Cons

    Very little support for new employees. I felt thrown into the job and was fortunate to have been with a client in a classroom where the teachers (not employed by NHS) were very helpful and supportive. Hired as fee-for-service employee and not able to get more hours if there was a school closing or family cancellation made for difficult budget planning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure employees have ALL trainings before assigning them to clients.

    Pay could be better for employees. Hear out your employees more. Predict industry changes better and shield employees from recessions.
