    Long and Tedious

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Biddeford, ME
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Biddeford, ME

    I have been working at Counseling Services, Inc.

    Pros

    they are one of the largest community mental health agencies in the state. They adapt to the changing world to stay in business. They now have more of a chance staying open due to a merger with Maine Health.

    Cons

    Consistent restrictions in pay, holiday's, earned time, more hours required.
    Lack of oversight on middle management from senior leaders.
    No bonuses and a decrease in COL increases.
     The IT department is terrible
    No work and life balance for the community workers.
    Redundancy in paperwork.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously talk and LISTEN to your employees. Senior leaders and regional directors need to frequent the buildings and talk to their employees who do the work otherwise you'll continue to lose valuable employees.
