    Pros

    The pros are the freedom, the benefits And being able to be part of such a great team that truly care about the client's and the mission.

    Cons

    Pay could be better for amount of resposibility and work load. Not enough room for advancement for Bachelor's level clinicians.

  2. A mixed bag

    Pros

    A great place for new Master's Level graduates to get a foot in the door and learn A TON about mental health and clinical work. Supervision is free! The benefits and time-off is great (you get 13 hours/month in your first 2 years, and 20 hours a month once you hit the 2 year mark). I met and worked with a lot of wonderful people. It tends to be a fairly supportive environment. Depending on the job you have, schedules can be flexible which accounts for great work/life balance.

    Cons

    A lot of times decisions are made from leadership, without consulting with front-line staff; There is constant change in the agency and you must be able to adapt quickly to change or you will down (i.e I learned 3 different Electronic Health Record systems in my 2 years); Pay is bad (I don't agree that they are in line with other Mental Health agencies... I actually think it is one of the worst when it comes to pay) and employee retention suffers as a result -- it's hard to find people (aside from management) who have worked at CRC for more than 3 years. A lot of program management issues which causes a disorganized agency with a lot of mixed messages.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, retain better.

  3. My experience has been one with growth, challenge and support.

    Pros

    The people we serve, the staff we work with, the programs we offer.

    Cons

    Change is often generated from the leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Engage front line staff to drive change.

    Pros

    The best, and really only reason to work at Community Reach as a clinician is if you believe in helping the under served population in Adams County.

    Cons

    Management is very disconnected from clinical work, and do not show respect and gratitude to those who are providing the services that keep the agency going.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing clinical work so you aren't so disconnected. Treat your clinicians - from bachelors level to lower management with the kind of respect and gratitude you would give someone who is putting food on your table - because in a way, we are.

  6. Good place to start your career
