    Pros

    It has a lot of potential to be a great provider of IDD services. There are many who would be great mentors if they had such a program

    Cons

    Employee morale is very low and it does not seem to be a concern for upper management. Too many unprofessional people in lower management positions. Not much is communicated down the pipeline when changes occur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee morale. Consider a mentoring program for entry level and lower level managers

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Gives bad references even though the company is not permitted to do so by law. Was offered a position at another location than my own which was retracted due to receiving a bad reference. Management is unapproachable if you aren't close with them and they only hold some people accountable and not others for the same actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be objective and not let your personal relationships create a bias in treatment of staff. Be sure not to be hypocritical in judgments, such as reprimanding staff for using cell phones while management use cell phones on the floor in front of clients and staff.

    I have been working at NHS Human Services

    Pros

    NHS is a big company with room to move around to different programs if you are interested. Some workers are in a union which protects their employment. Benefits were changed this year, but seem to be on par with similar agencies.

    Cons

    Terrible turnover and general lack of appreciation for employees. The pay is not great and depending on the position, there is far too much work for the money earned. 403b is not worth anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with employees.

    Pros

    Staff really cares about community and clients they serve. There is opportunity to grow if you have the educational background. Company is strong standing and has higher salary than most non profit mental health out patient programs.

    Cons

    Some of the leaders are not strong enough to be in their position. Job can be stressful at times. Turn over rate can be high at certain locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of dead weight to build positive moral and take staffs recommendation to change negative culture of office politics.
