    I have been working at Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good management-- bosses aren't unreasonable and don't stand over your shoulders all the time, layoffs are rare, usually plenty of hours to go around, work is not severely stressful or demanding. As long as you do your job, are honest and keep up with your deadlines, you don't need to worry about losing your job due. People don't lose their job due to petty office politics or personal grudges like many other jobs, either. This is social work-- we have bigger problems.

    Cons

    Takes a long time to move up within company, raises are small since it's a non-profit. Supervision is minimal, so have to be proactive if you need help from bosses. Sometimes inter-departmental communication is a little lax.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Focus of the overall company is wonderful.

    Cons

    Seems as if you wear many hats and are expected to do many things that you were not hired to do and/or out of your knowledge to do. Lots of gossip, and back stabbing between employees. They care for the consumers far more then their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Stop the gossip. Help your employees.

    Good Oppurtunity to do great work, but too much focus on the bottom line.

    I worked at Mental Health Association of South Central Kansas

    Pros

    I was very pleased with being able to make a positive impact in many people's lives, helping individuals with mental illness move into their own homes and learning to be independent.

    Cons

    The focus of management was on the bottom line and there was a lack of creative thinking on how to work with consumers. Instead of listening to the staff working with the consumers they made policy based on their own preconcieved ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your workers in the field to guide change and policy and you will get improved outcomes.
