Pros

co-workers are the only positive thing about this company

Cons

everything!! Considering the level of education needed for any jobs with this company, the pay is pretty pathetic. The benefits totally suck and recent change in management turned the last ounce of hope for this company into a total disaster. They give a crap about their employees and only care about profits.

Advice to Management

Start caring about your employees and clients, or you will go under sooner or later! Employees are leaving left and right and the bad reputation is locally known among competitive agencies and customers, which is why you are not getting contracts. If you increase educational expectations, start increasing salary!

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    The work is meaningful and the clients are interesting. The other therapists are all great: supportive, friendly and hard working. They really care about the people they work with.

    Cons

    The pay is miserable. The hours are very long. Although the company provides supervision, it is very uneven in quality. Management is focused on profit and not on client welfare "get them in and get them out" is the philosophy. The technology resources are minimal. Communication between management and the therapists is inadequate, slow and often misinformed.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and clients with compassion.
