I worked at Center Point full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The clients are lovely and, for the most part, the staff is there because they are passionate about what they do.

Cons

- There is often a feeling of things being chaotic and out of control. - Extreme demands are made of the staff with minimal to no training; staff are often responsible for training themselves, and are not prepared to handle crisis situations (to the disadvantage of the clients). - There are very few and very rare opportunities to advance, and compensation is minimal. - HR is very disorganized; there are complications with benefits that are handled to the disadvantage of the employee. - Complaints to HR and Management regarding the work environment go unaddressed.

Advice to Management

Need a structured and constantly-implemented training curriculum for new staff. Need an organized HR department that takes employee concerns seriously. Need to invest in a management system that organizes the work environment and reduces a sense of chaos, to better serve clients.

    I worked at Center Point full-time

    Pros

    Given a number of unique opportunities that helped me grow professionally and become a far better and more skilled counselor than I was when I started.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations at times, lack of support, lack of sufficient training, kind of just thrown in to sink or swim.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Center Point full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None at all...the guards, aka senior management, make sure of that

    Cons

    Bad management, bad pay, bad benefits, no personal growth possible, questionable business practices, employees treated like prisoners, or at best, kindergartners

    Advice to Management

    Board of Directors should oust the E.D. Company needs a truly independent audit by a new CPA firm that is not in the E.D.s pocket.
