    ProsFlexible work schedule

    Company that uses best practices in quality of care

    Clinician (Current Employee) Altadena, CA

    ProsValues most of their employees

    ConsGreat company in general, but they do not value the expertise of their clinicians

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou could probably slow the high overturn in clinicians and build a better, more stable and valuable clinical foundation if you could streamline the documentation requirements and allow more time for clinicians to work with clients.

    Good organization that has its rough edges

    Clinical Social Worker (Current Employee) Pasadena, CA

    ProsYou have significant amounts of autonomy to get your work done as you deem appropriate and within a work schedule that you in many ways you can set for yourself.

    ConsNot enough opportunities for advancement in terms of supervisorial positions. For example, there hasn't been a supervisioral opening in my department for five years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut back on the productivity requirement by about ten percent. Don't micromanage from the executive levels of leadership within the agency. This happens routinely and is usually not a smart thing to do.

    ProsThey do terrific work in helping kids in need.

    ConsBenefits are so-so. Some micro-managing. Little growth opportunities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees more. Show respect to those below you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
