I have been working at Center for Discovery full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Working with clients can be rewarding and most of the staff are great

Cons

Management can be prickly and hard to communicate with despite the "open door policy." Many employees have recently commiserated that it is time to look for a new job, and the company seems to be in some kind of state of change, but counseling staff is in the dark about what that change might entail.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give counselors more positive feedback. We are dedicated and work hard for low wages because we love what we do. For each thing management points out we are doing wrong, we need at least a morsel of encouragement too. We are your front-line!

    Pros

    Personal work experience with people that really care about you. Although the company is now over 200 employees, there are roughly thirty employees at each house. The staff I work with are extremely supportive and know you and care about you personally. It will help you grow personally and that in itself will help you grow in your career.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE benefit packages bad ethics of the company. Upper management could not place a face with my name. This job is emotionally hard and the compensation is not good. This job is the equivalent of an emotional punching bag, because the adolescents are extremely challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value your employees, look at our employee turnover!
