    "Management is never satisfied when 60 hours per week is typical."

    Child Facilitator (Former Employee) Modesto, CA

    ProsCo-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.

    Cons3-4 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 Senior ManagementDo 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Difficult company to work for.

    Social Worker (Former Employee) Central Valley, CA

    ProsMaking a difference in childrens' lives.

    ConsAt sattelite offices you are at the mercy of the District Director, who may or may not, be an ethical or fair person. Their actions are not always known by the top heavy, upper management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to what your employees are willing to share with you about their experiences. Combine jobs in Human Resources rather than micro-managing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great entry-level experience in the field of psychology and social work

    Child Facilitator (Current Employee)

    ProsAspiranet is a fair experience for undergraduate students who are interested in a career in the field of mental health or social work. Although the pay is not competitive, the experience and knowledge earned int he field of Autism behavioral intervention is rewarding and job experience for future careers in the field.

    ConsPay isn't competitive.
    No benefits if you are part-time.
    No room for growth without an advanced degree
    Little training offered when hired, but this aspect has greatly improved

    Advice to Senior ManagementYearly raises would be a nice incentive. Also, more administrative responsiblities or job duties would be beneficial.

    benefits need to improve

    Clinical Social Worker (Current Employee) Daly City, CA

    Proshelping at risk youths to succeed in society. Dealing with youths that have committed vilations against society.

    Consbenefits package is abysmal especially the retirement package. There is none. Medical benefits are also veyr poor. They lacking envision and innovation with the rest of other companies. Salary is low and you only get a moderate pay raise 3, 5 and 10 years. After the 10th year, their are no more raisesand it is only 5% raise which does not keep up with inflation. turnover rate is very high due the poor salary, benefits and stress one is under.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is lacking

    It's a good stepping stone to earn hours....but not a place to stay for the long haul

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking with children and families to help them better their situations

    ConsA lot of favoritism, not a lot of room for growth, being micro managed,

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more aware of who you have running the different regions and locations. There are numerous upper management that are out for themseleves and not for what is best for clients or staff. There are some supervisors around that do not exhibit appropriate boundaries with their staff members, but are able to conitnue in the position with no recourse, while front line staff are getting in trouble for similar occurances or things that did not happen.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
