Pros

This company offers great programs for clients seeking assistance for mental health problems. Co-workers are helpful and friendly. Benefits are okay.

Cons

Employee turnover is excessive. Remaining employees are burdened with such an overload of extra work that they in turn are so stressed they must seek employment elsewhere. No proper training for non certified employees. Rules constantly changing. Job descriptions clause: and anything else we require you to do. No compensation for extra duties added to an already overburdened workforce. No consistancy in training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit letting your ego get in the way of properly maintaining an adequate workforce.

    Pros

    This company expects a great deal in terms of time spent at the job. However, the job is rewarding in that you are going into folks homes to serve them with their mental health and/or addction challenges. Every day is different, every client has different needs, and every solution is individualized to the person.

    Cons

    Field work can be frightening, foks are at different stages of recovery. The work is challenging, demanding, fast paced and can take a great deal of time away from your personal life. The company doesn't support their employees when they meet challenges that prove to be difficult and particularly if mistakes are made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your people. Show them you care as much about them as you do the folks you serve. Provide care and understanding in the same way you do with people with mental health issues.
