    Pros

    The health benefits are good, currently have UHG and since Lifewell is taking over, I'm sure due to poor mgmt, we will have BCBS

    Cons

    Management micromanages, favorites are instilled, labels are forever, poor communication, it's all about who's behind you kiss. The management has run the company into the ground, no training provided, everyone makes up the rules as they go. Poor organization... Literally

    over managed. under paid. too much gossip

    be realistic with who your case managers are and what they are trying to do. with college degrees not required there is way too much micromanagement for what you are being paid.

    Pros

    Providing much-needed benefits to SMI population.
    Comfortable room temps. Well lit work environment. Good phone system & tech support. Decent benefits. Free tea/coffee.

    Cons

    Impossible productivity requirements. Frequent lengthy required morning meetings, trainings, supervisions, scoldings.
    Endured the worst supervisor of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Consider implementing a factory-like structure for required data input/output, so teams can meet mandated goals more efficiently, and get on to meeting needs of the recipients.

    Pros

    I really enjoy my clinical team. My supervisor is a great guy and very down to Earth. The entire clinic has a great morale with many friendly employees.

    Cons

    I am under paid. I have a degree in psychology but only had a year of professional experience as a caseworke when hired. For those who decided not to go to college and enter straight into this position are compensated for their time in the field. However if you chose instead to go to college instead of work it greatly effects your pay.

    Advice to Management

    Show your appreciation for education in your employees pay.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for CHOICES are the people and the support you receive from those you work with. Supervisors are very supportive at CHOICES and the clients you have the opportunity to work with make the job worthwhile.

    Cons

    There is a lot of hard work and time management that goes into a CM position. It can be very taxing to complete the required documents and still find time to work one on one with your clients to get their specific needs met.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with your expectations of your employees. An incentive program would be appreciated which would help increase productivity needed to keep the appropriate funds in tact.
