Pros

Values most of their employees

Cons

Great company in general, but they do not value the expertise of their clinicians

Advice to Management

You could probably slow the high overturn in clinicians and build a better, more stable and valuable clinical foundation if you could streamline the documentation requirements and allow more time for clinicians to work with clients.

    Pros

    You have significant amounts of autonomy to get your work done as you deem appropriate and within a work schedule that you in many ways you can set for yourself.

    Cons

    Not enough opportunities for advancement in terms of supervisorial positions. For example, there hasn't been a supervisioral opening in my department for five years.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on the productivity requirement by about ten percent. Don't micromanage from the executive levels of leadership within the agency. This happens routinely and is usually not a smart thing to do.


  2. A place where you get nothing - and you'll like it.

    They do terrific work in helping kids in need.

    Benefits are so-so. Some micro-managing. Little growth opportunities.

    Listen to your employees more. Show respect to those below you.
