    A Great Place to Make a Difference but very challenging work environment

    Counselor (Former Employee)
    Davis, CA

    ProsThe ability to change young people's lives and give them a chance for a real future. Co-workers with a real heart for the work they do.

    ConsVery stressful work environment, clients will verbally abuse you, attempt to physically attack you. Very little pay for the amount of work and stress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive the support that is needed to your workers on the front line- working on the floor, with better support, bonuses, raises, vacation time, and it will greatly improve the employee turn over rate.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Families First .... Employees Second.

    Mental Health Counselor (Former Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsEntry-level experience coming out of school. If you are not entry-level, do not bother!
    Experience working with a wide range of client throughout the community

    ConsPay is horrible! expect no more than $20/hour for a Master's degree. Recently merged with EMQ in Sacramento, CA and they did a horrible job figuring out the transition and many left. Rack up many miles on the car and do not get paid adequately for this. Medical and Dental is a joke. 401k is very minimal. Supervisors are constantly leaving and in transition. The supervisors that stay are incompenent or micromanagers. Clearly, I thought people would be better here, considering the field that they work in, but they fail worse than county mental health departments I have worked for.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo to school, get an MBA or Org Development education to know how to be leaders.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpenly share budget concerns in advance with staff especially when it effects a persons position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
