    Pros

    A great place to start a career. Great training in social services and mental health.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than average for a non-profit organization which already are on the low end of the salary scale.

    Advice to Management

    Cost cutting strategy will only get you so far. At some point, cost cutting measures will backfire. Investing in the right people will be the only way you can assure your organizations future success.

    Pros

    Helping the Clients in the community.

    Cons

    Poor Management. Social Workers oversee the nurses that go out and do home visits/work in the clinic. It makes zero sense at all.A Social Worker has zero clue or understanding a nurses job & the liability that comes along with being a nurse.....

    Advice to Management

    Get a Director of Nursing & create an actual nursing dept.

    Pros

    Overtime wasn't required often for certain employees. Insurance benefits were available. There were potlucks and monthly employee meetings where light breakfast was provided and employees were recognized for various accomplishments. Most of the employees were kind and friendly.

    Cons

    Low pay Too strict with clock-in/out times Some employees were severely disgruntled. Seemed like there was a relatively high employee turnover rate Requesting time off was like pulling teeth; you have to put in the request way in advance. The agency doesn't close in the event of inclement weather or natural disasters. You're still expected to come to work.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay for hourly employees. You can afford to up the pay. Don't make employees feel guilty when they request time off. Don't be so stringent with clock-in/out times. Make a job board to post in-house job opportunities for current employees.

    Pros

    NCMHS has a terrific reputation for the services delivered. Highly qualified, dedicated people head up the treatment teams. This is the place to learn how to excel at delivering social services.

    Cons

    The job brings 60 hours per week of responsibilities. Unlicensed employees get 40 hours per week to do them in. Employees who don't meet productivity expectations are on the sidewalk fast. Those vacation days you were promised? If you aren't meeting productivity, you can forget about them. Those electronic hand-readers by the doorway? They aren't for security. They're to make sure that unlicensed employees don't spend one second more or one second less than exactly forty hours per week on the job. Folks do find ways to meet productivity honestly and ethically. You will want to start looking for help and advice on how to do that from the minute you start.

    Advice to Management

    Requiring notes to be turned in at the end of every day, and electronic sign-in hurts employee morale more than monthly employee potlucks can build it.
