    Pros

    This company takes great care of its employees, the benefits of employment here are far greater than any private firm, especially for a non degree requiring position.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty, but this comes with the territory. Nothing that you haven't seen at home as a parent or babysitter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work. I enjoy the opportunity that you guys give to expand training and advance in the company.

    I have been working at People Incorporated full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love that we are a growing company and we keep expanding to serve more people who are considered hard to serve. Working in mental health services means working with stigmas and we work hard to ensure that our approach is person-centered and reduces harm.

    My manager makes genuine and concentrated efforts to help me be more effective in my job and supports my career growth. Our company is big enough that if I want to do something else I have lots of choices!

    Cons

    We have a lot of programs but we are a big company. We need to do better at connecting people across programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to solicit positive input and constructive criticism from employees!

    Pros

    I enjoy working with people in crisis. I am working toward my licensed and full-time employees receive free supervision.

    Cons

    Possibly the waiting for a day or evening shift to become available, along with full-time work. I current work Saturday and Sunday (3rd shift from 12am-8:30am) and also fill in for coworkers. The company provides endless seminars and education in which you are paid, imagine that. Excellent instructor and guest speakers.

    I worked at People Incorporated

    Pros

    Pretty good starting hourly pay. Being able to affect change as an individual was the most beneficial thing about the work.

    Cons

    With restructuring it was basically a complete staff turnover. There have been several lawsuits,I can name at least 3 regarding discriminatory practices even based upon health status.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't manage as a friend. Do not become Facebook friends with those below you.

    Pros

    If you are driven to help people with mental health issues, this is the company you want to work for.
    -Guided by mission, not profits.
    -Huge diversity of services- lots of options to grow a career.
    -Surrounded by committed and talented co-workers.
    -Training department is excellent.
    -Benefits and compensation extremely competitive- especially for folks starting their career.

    Cons

    Well, it's a non-profit and relies on state and county contracts for most of it's revenue. As a large organization we're able to get the ear of decision makers, but if the state decides to cut funding in a certain area this could negatively impact a specific program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep reaching out to direct staff to solicit input and make us feel valued!

    I worked at People Incorporated full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The clients were amazing to work with, they will teach you more than any textbook.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING BUT THE CLIENTS. Management is jaded and crooked. They hire anyone to be a program manager. High work load, little respect to self care. No raises, ever. Poor communication. Sneaky transitions and changes at a rapid pace. No respect for long term employees. Take, take, take attitude. Bad reputation in the Twin Cities. Awful HR, not for the staff but for the management. High turnover, unhappy staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try appreciating your staff like we appreciate our clients. If you are hiring a program manager for a mental health program, make sure that they have mental health experience not just a fresh degree. Most of the time the staff at the programs have a degree as well and EXPERIENCE. HR should be made to feel safe for staff to come to with issues not fear reprimand....if the CEO only knew half the stuff that goes on...

    ALSO...STOP TRANSITIONING STUFF...IF IT ISN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!
