    Pros

    The salary was competitive (and benefits awesome) and if you have any interest in the mental health field, this is a great place to get your feet wet.

    Safety was sometimes an issue. Dealing with clients wasn't always a pleasant experience because they frequently are at their wits' end and really need help.

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on the safety of the employees.
