    Pros

    The trust built with caseload ...consumers... and some co workers, that's it.

    Cons

    Power differential, money hungry with no value in ethics, ..if you are not working in a clinical setting, and wish to advance your career and move up, regardless if you are capable, have skill set, education to back this up....
     Bunch of cowards who push employees around BC they get away with it ...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say...
    It won't make a difference to you unless you take an honest look in mirror.

    Pros

    Great Mission,compassionate direct line workers, good benefit package

    Cons

    Leadership in transition,lots of change( chaos), no clearly delineated business plan or org. chart
    Morale at upper levels of organization very low.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent. Stop operating in the shadows.. Evaluate and pay mid mangers more , share the wealth, Top management makes obsence amounts of money on the backs of the revenue producers ( direct line workers).

    Pros

    I enjoy what I did. If you are part of the "click" you are ok. The "Core Values" are great. If people followed them and valued them, is another story.

    Cons

    If you stand apart, you are picked on, with no support from the higher ups. There is no confidentiality. If you have a problem with another employee, supervisor, etc. you are the one, most likely to suffer especially if they are "protected." This company does not value their employees. Moral is way down always has been always will be unless theres a change. There is no support from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Management is the problem in this company - all the way up to the CEO. There are too many VPs. If you want the company to be successful, reorganize and start over from the top down.

    I worked at NHS Human Services

    Pros

    It was nice to be able to create my own hours and I was able to do assessments and basically choose the clients I thought would be a good match for me. I was able to bring a creative, eclectic approach to my work. There is great diversity in the population of clients.

    Cons

    It's very difficult when you don't get paid if clients don't show and scheduling becomes tricky or you just don't make all that much money. Supervision is kept to a minimum which creates lapses in communication.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't even know where to begin. Obviously there is very little funding for this type of work and that gets reflected in the work environment. I will say that it was very very helpful to have a very competent medical records department.

    Pros

    Decent Salary and good benefits. Work as a team and feel like you can get support from your co-workers because you are all going through the same things together.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, worked in excess of 10 hours a day..barely had time to enjoy anything outside of work. The job is mentally exhausting and even when you work more than 10 hours a day, management is still on you about your productivity not being good enough. They look at therapy as a money maker and not something that should be viewed in terms of quality not quantity. No room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Provide more positive feedback that may encourage workers to feel good about what they are doing instead of always telling them they need to be doing more.
