  1. flexible but inconsistent workload

    Current Employee - Behavioral Health Coach
    Current Employee - Behavioral Health Coach

    I have been working at AbilTo part-time

    Pros

    * Providers are able to schedule appointments based on their own availability * Ability to telecommute * Fulfilling work * Most coworkers are polite and professional

    Cons

    * frequent upgrades to the platform means lots of glitches, sometimes requiring you to retype notes * chain of command is unclear; it's rare that an issue needs to be escalated up the chain of command, but when it happens, there seems to be a grey area in terms of responsibility * work load is inconsistent (not AbilTo's fault, but needs a mention. This job should be used to supplement income, not as your main source of income) * rescheduling missed appointments can get tricky and be time consuming

    Advice to Management

    * be more transparent about chain of command * finalize platform updates/fix glitches * make training materials/documents accessible from the dashboard so they can be referenced quickly and easily

    Pros

    Free lunch on Monday, really connecting with aetna members

    Cons

    Management that runs this DEPT along with a TROLL like supervisor is run like its an experiment in a petri dish! They have NO skills, NO real world experience, NOR the right chromosomes to run let alone a DAYCARE!

    Advice to Management

    GO BACK TO COLLEGE AND GET REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE AND ALSO LEARN TO RESPECT THE REPS THAT MAKE IT POSSIBLE. GET RID OF THAT TROLL. THERE IS GOING TO BE COMPLAINTS TO LAWYERS AND EQUAL EMPLOYMENT ABOUT THE WAY PEOPLE ARE HARASSED

    Pros

    Good pay Good benefits Successful business with bright future thanks to multiple rounds of funding from venture capitalists. Rewarding job

    Cons

    Does not care about employees Unrealistic work expectations Let you go with no notice or reason No Communication Management has no clue

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees. Don't let the good ones go. Invest in employee morale and company culture rather than just trying to make your investors happy.

    Pros

    - Specifically, the company is reaching out to medical populations in need and hopefully making a positive impact in their lives. - Coworkers are generally pretty cool people, which contributes to a decent office atmosphere. Also, it's technically a start-up, so it isn't a very buttoned up place to work. - Catered lunches on Mondays - Great health benefits

    Cons

    Probably not that much different than with any other employer, there is often a disconnect between what management thinks should happen and what is actually feasible.

    Advice to Management

    For a small company, there's no reason that management can't communicate effectively and regularly with its underlings. The tech support folks generally have sound counsel to offer that would more often behoove the company to follow rather than brush aside.

    Pros

    salary was fair,fed you free lunch, staff very friendly Tight work space

    Cons

    Lied about position and presented it as a non marketing role.,.guess what it was...did not appreciate the bum rush training and under handed method of outsourcing you within weeks of employment... I did them a favor...I left

    Advice to Management

    Be trueful to prospective hires...and learn the rope of real human resource management before you get a serious law suit filed against you


  9. AbilTo is not for everyone, but can be a option for flex work from home.

    I have been working at AbilTo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    AbilTo is a good option for retired or part time social workers. It does require a comfort level with remote counseling. Althougth the pay is not high, the benefits include flexible scheduling, 50% reimbursement for No Shows and Staffings. Consultation is easily accessable and monthly training provide opportunites for CEU's. The clients are referred, and paycheck directly deposited into your account. So there is no overhead, no marketing, and no billing or administrative costs. Clients are high functioning with medical conditions such as Cardiac, Diabetes, Post-Partum Depression, etc.

    Cons

    Work is not gauranteed. The more availability you have, the more clients you receive.

    Pros

    Evidenced-based treatment models and flexibility

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is most of your communication with your co-worker occurs via email instead of an actual office setting.

    Pros

    They do not hire mental health counselors due to "boundary issues". Ill informed at the least, blatantly insulting at the worst. Personal and professional boundaries lie in the individual. Ethics are strictly enforced in the professional counseling field. There will always be those people who violate boundaries but to label an entire field is having an issue is absurd. I wouldn't want to work for such a close minded organization.

    Cons

    In a profession where labels and biases are therapeutically and professionally unacceptable-the company is those very things.

    Advice to Management

    Educate your recruiters in the mental health profession and customer service.
