    Veneer of professionalism masks the poorest services to clients and most unpleasant treatment of workers.

    Pros

    Flex time is available if wanted

    Cons

    Productivity demands are unrealistic. Professionals are infantalized. 30 mins for lunch is insufficient for a super high volume work load. 70+ caseloads. Management is unpleasant. High turnover of workers across the board. This was a nightmare job and a horror show agency. Clients are treated disrespectfully and clinicians are simultaneously infantalized and overworked. The mental health branch of the agency is a smoke and mirror hoax. Perhaps medical is better. The mental health client services delivered here are the poorest I have seen personally. I guess they are not actually committing fraud but they come as close as possible to fraud without crossing the line. They do not deliver effective services as their focus is only on the electronic medical record looking good. The actual delivery of therapeutic services does not seem to matter to management. I believe OMH likes this agency quite a bit. But I am sureinfantalized that the truth will come out. If you scratch the service beneath a good act of professionalism, all you will find is a nasty Medicaid mill.

    Pros

    All of my colleagues are wonderful, intelligent, supportive, and inspiring people. I will keep in touch.

    Cons

    Excessively insensitive to the therapeutic alliance with all the data collection and the lack of clinical support and high case loads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set case loads, give comprehensive health benefits, clinical supervision, and training in a more consistent and patient centered manner.
