    Pros

    Person-centered corporate philosophy. LOTS of training. Supportive environment. Management is committed to the population served. Opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Full-time employees have a difficult time getting time off because of short-staffing issues. Human Services is a fluid field, and the lower-level employee base (weekends, overnights) don't stay long as they move on to full-time positions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more "float" positions, and be supportive and encouraging of employees being able to use their personal time off - particularly overnight and evening shifts.

    Pros

    Talented co-workers. Excellent array of MH services. Agency offers training and also provides training dollars to staff.

    Cons

    Agency does adult mental health services well, but is having problems with addition of mental health services to children and families. Poor benefits (i.e. paid time off). Issues with HR which resulted in weeks of headaches upon leaving the agency (i.e. not offered Cobra benefits until 45 days after left the agency; continued to get paid after left and not treated well when acknowledged this error).

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support to middle management, so employees doing direct service feel supported and encouraged in their work.

    Pros

    They do great work for people with disabilities and mental health struggles. They fulfill their mission from my observation.

    Cons

    They now require a degree to be hired for many lower level jobs that can be done by individuals with experience or train them when they start. In my experience the degree is not what makes the individual right for the positions and I have seen many great people not apply for this specific reason.

    Advice to Management

    The constant restructuring of divisions and programs is tiresome and proving to be regressive rather than progressive.

    Pros

    Great trainings, lots of variety, interesting staff and clients, The agency, from the top down, really cares about the mission. This is the best place I have worked and have no intentions of leaving. The agency and staff truly understand mental health and work as a team toward the best possible outcome for the greatest number of people. They spend their limited resources wisely as to save the funders tax payers money without limiting the services to clients.

    Cons

    The clients can have a lot of barriers and times and it is not always easy to navigate the county and State systems but the agency support is great through it all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, quality staff mostly, and a good mission. Probably one of the better mental health agencies around the Twin Cities area.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement. Lots of turn over lately with a new CEO. Not very transparent. Not union.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, don't blow them off when they are bringing up issues that are important to them. Sometimes we feel like we are your clients, we aren't. Work with us more.
