Former Employee - School Based Therapist in Asheville, NC

I worked at Family Preservation Services full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Free supervision, plenty of opportunities for clinical growth. relatively speaking, fps offers a wide range of services in a region (Asheville) where mental health services are poorly lackingada

Cons

24k base salary is beyond ridiculously low
toxic work environment
they are a FOR PROFIT organization, profiting on the backs of lowly paid masters level therapists and the medicaid funds of clients served.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

raise the pay for counselors by about 10k per year and your turn over will lessen. company vehicles for staff that must work in the community. staff laptops with appropriate software. make the office a more welcoming environment.

    I have been working at Family Preservation Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only positive thing that WAS in place was setting own hrs. I'm not sure it applies when you have to send your daily schedule to the office.

    Cons

    Inconsistency across the board
    Lack of direction & training
    No mileage pay
    Low pay
    Company's expectations are unrealistic
    Managements' attitude lowers morale
    The office is in Kernysville where there is a lack of transportation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a procedure manual for each individual office.
    Staff your office with people who want to work, not complain
    Outfit the office so it's welcoming- including appliances
    Ensure the office is CLEANED, stocked, and utilities: water, phones, and internet are in working order
    Have a computer system in place that is current and applicable to the job.

    I worked at Family Preservation Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, somewhat flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Working in unsafe conditions often going to homes that are dangerous and unsanitary. In-home and Mental Health Support required to use own car and paid mileage rate from early 1980's (.30 p/mile)- we were told that we were lucky to get this as it was NOT required although other agencies in the area pay .50-.55.5 cents per mile. Upper management staunch with communication problem. Uncooperative with a huge amount of work performed at home (which you are not compensated for). Company DOES NOT seem to care about clients and their welfare at all--only looking at profits:(
