    I worked at Aspiranet

    Pros

    Benefits, consistent schedule, sufficient parking, kitchen in the office, 1 hour lunches

    Cons

    Stressful work, too much work not enough employees, upper management is incompetent and over paid, workers are overworked and under paid, company cannot stick with 1 base of procedures resulting in 5 different procedures for 1 task, cannot work effectively with state agencies,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your workers what they are worth and for the work they are expected to complete. Review your upper management for their work completed. Allow employees to rate their management and really listen to their opinions.

    I worked at Aspiranet part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    When the child matches with the program, you do see changes in their behavior

    Cons

    Not enough training. Not enough support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For new comers with no experience, it's best to start with only one client. And, if available, a client that is higher functioning because it can and will get difficult. Taking on more than you can handle will lead you to burn out very early. Make sure this is a job for you. You can be good at it, but it doesn't mean that you will be happy.

    I have been working at Aspiranet full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The work that the agency does with the clients is amazing. The different groups that are offered at the office are really beneficial to the whole family.The atmosphere in the office is awesome. I know I can go to any supervisor and they fully support me. There are a lot of different trainings that we do to keep up to date. The benefits are decent with the option for the company to cover the cost of your medical insurance.

    Cons

    The pay could be better for the intensive services that are provided. Some Saturday and evening work at times.

    I worked at Aspiranet as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Not too many pros: might be a pro if looking to get licensure as an MSW/MFT, can be flexible depending on requests, potential to move up to some extent

    Cons

    Not a good place to go for training (in anything), condescending, very very hypocritical, which is the biggest con about organization. Don't work here if you want to be ordered around without appreciation/if you don't want to be looked down upon

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shouldn't be condescending or hypocritical, all employees should be treated as equals.

    Former Employee - Child Facilitator in Modesto, CA

    I worked at Aspiranet full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were very positive and upbeat and work well as a team much of the time. Received lots of interesting training that was useful in the work. Enjoyed the group supervision time to discuss cases with the licensed supervisor.

    Cons

    3-4 hour meetings that interfere with meeting with clients. Leadership is poor and more than willing to lie to make themselves look good to their managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do away with the "Productivity" and allow individuals to do their job. Keep the Program Managers out of the group supervision unless the group agrees to have them participate.
