Current Employee - Counselor in Harrisburg, PA

I have been working at Gaudenzia full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Decent benefits, non-profit company, free meals, overtime available

Cons

Poor management, low pay, bad schedules, let bad people stay and collect pay checks and let good people leave, not enough time to complete paperwork....a lot is asked of employees.....burnout is common

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually go into the programs from time to time. Fix maintenance issues instead of ignoring problems for years. Empower employees to do their jobs.

    Horrible place to work

    Former Employee - Drug and Alcohol Counselor in Philadelphia, PA
    Former Employee - Drug and Alcohol Counselor in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Gaudenzia full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    working with a diverse D/A inmate patient population. working with (few) colleagues that have or are working on acquiring their Bachelor's or Master's in counseling. The job skills training instructor (JE) was a joy to learn from.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible for what you are expected to do. There is no shortage of groups, and little to no time to run them. Fast-paced environment with no clinical support. Clinical directors and supervisors in name only, as they have no credentials, i.e. MSW, LPC, LSW, LCSW, to supervise or run a human services dept. "Clinical supervisors" supervision consists of managing your productivity, and not assisting you with refining clinical skills, (see aforementioned point above). Most employees in the building after a month of hire appears on edge, ready to snap.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire clinical directors, clinical supervisors that can clinically supervise their staff, and not act as if the staff are part of the patient population.
