    No Room for advancement at all

    Mental Health Support (Current Employee)

    ProsPros are pretty much nill, you make you own hours, the experience to work with individuals that have mental health issues, the only training is somewhat helpful but very generic, this company is a for profit company, so perhaps investing in while make you money.

    Consmassive paperwork, little resources, no bonuses, high turnover rate, no room for advancement, every month the CEO sends out a very generic newsletter that is not very newsworthy, pressure to provide assistance to people that may not actually need the services.

    Advice to Senior Managementget to know your employees, there is little room for advancement that is offered. please get better health benefits.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bad all around

    Licensed Professional Counselor (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsThey will give anyone a job, even with little or no experience.

    ConsPretty much everything. Management is constantly changing, high employee turnover, unrealistic expectations. Management is very threatening in nature; definitely not coaching or supportive management. Corporate office is also very inept and will not take responsibility for their mistakes. Pay and vacation and benefits in general are poor!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees well and they will stick with you. Your clients are unhappy because they end up with 2-4 different therapists because they keep quitting due to abusive work situations.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It has its definite ups and downs!!

    Case Manager (Current Employee) Greenville, TX

    ProsThe best reasons to work here would be to gain experience and hours toward licensure. It is also a good job if you enjoy flexibility in your weekly schedule.

    ConsDownsides include poor salaries, uncertain future of company, revolving door of coworkers and very disgruntled clients quite often. If management would be more involved with the success and happiness of their case managers they would experience a lot more success in the future. Case managers have a quota per se of client hours to achieve on a weekly basis and sometimes/often that can require a lot of jockeying around - working weekends, etc.....the paperwork that follows this effort is enormous and hardly worth the salaries given!

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind out what the problems are in the smaller rural offices - more training and support is desperately needed!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Expected to do too much work with too little resources

    Therapist (Former Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsThis company was willing to give me lots of experience and really grow in my abilities in the behavioral health field.

    ConsProvidence is a publicly held company that makes a profit from medicaid billing. Profitability seemed to be the bottom line over client care.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Providence is a well intentioned community of mental health professionals with operational difficulties.

    Child and Family Counselor (BHT) (Former Employee) Tucson, AZ

    ProsAttitude towards work life balance and time off are very generous.
    Coworkers are honest, dedicated, and fun to work with.

    ConsManagement is disorganized and engages in infighting.
    Due to management infighting, employees have difficulty working across departments.
    Leadership does not send clear messages to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider reorganizing mid-level management or providing less ambiguous directives that improve inter-group unity.

    It has been an interesting entry level position, serving as a mentor.

    Mentor (Current Employee)

    ProsAs a mentor, you set your own schedule and you have the opportunity to be a positive role model in kids' lives.

    ConsThe pay isn't that great as a mentor. Also, there are some risks associated with spending time with troubled adolescents and you often experience violence, profanity, and poor behavior.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement within the company should more actively seek out college students by participating in career fairs and other various activities to get the company's name out there.

    Children and Adolescent Case Management Services in Maine

    Targeted Case Manager - Children and Adolescents (Former Employee) Hallowell, ME

    ProsProvidence provided an opportunity for me to grow professionally, to build my reputation and skills while ensuring I received support from all levels of management. Management had an open door policy and I always felt supported in making decisions with regard to treatment plans, crisis interventions, and also when it was time to discharge a client. It was truly a pleasure working for this organization.

    ConsThere was a great deal of documentation required; this took up a great deal of non-billable time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease salaries for direct care staff. In order to adequately meet the needs of such a high-needs population, staffing needs to be consistent and high level. Invest in your staff, reduce turnover, and insure quality candidates do not leave for the next slight increase in pay from your competitors.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
