    Mental Health Therapist

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Smart, talented, and dedicated clinicians. Allow flexible schedules like 4x10's etc. Beautiful work space and lots of $ spent "whining and dining" potential hires.

    Cons

    Constant battle with management to be able to provide safe and ethical care to members. Schedule demands do not allow for appropriate, timely, and ethical care delivery. Management and Supervisory turnover is constant.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your mistakes. You were sued for this in CA. Figure out a work flow model that allows for appropriate follow up with members or listen to clinician's thought and ideas on this.

    A house divided against itself cannot stand.

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay and depending upon the department you're in you may enjoy it.

    Cons

    The company doesn't function well as a whole. The divisions don't work with each other. HR does very little in terms of correcting offenses. If a manager is friends with HR reps they will not believe you when you seek them for help. If a manager spurns HR's correction but his department is bringing in money, HR will look the other way.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and train your managers. When someone is promoted to a new management level the training needs to be mandatory as many don't take it and their managers are too busy to care. I know you won't read this and if you do, you won't do anything about it so my title stands.
