    I worked at Child Guidance

    Pros

    Until the near-end I was allowed autonomy and given the freedom to be the creative, inspired, and out-of-the-box therapist I have become over the years. However in their recent restructure of the dept, any freedom to be that (despite my track record of success and constant flow of testimonials from my clients) was given over to the agency's desire to have non-thinking automatons as employees.

    Cons

    Their motto seems to be make as much money as possible, strive for grand sweeping change to minutia and never strive for more clinically, and hire people who don't threaten your fragile senses of self. A smart business hires and promotes those who are more intelligent and more creative even than its superiors. A penny-wise and pound-foolish one, however, drives away the employees who are smartest, keenest, and see the big picture more fully than the administration possibly can from their ivory towers. Good luck to them. They need it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the above. Take heed. You will certainly thrive if you take this to heart.
