  1. Great pay and benefits for non-profit but a little to paper-driven

    I worked at Rushford Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Their pay was very competitive when I was there a few years ago. I was actually making the same amount there as a BSW as I was at another agency with my MSW. They offer a wide variety of programs, making it easy to refer a client to another program. Paid for 2 trainings every quarter (or was it half) either with CSSD or DMHAS.

    Cons

    Since it is such a big organization, they could be a little too focused on paperwork, leaving less time for client interaction and aid.

    Advice to Management

    Help advocate for a more seamless approach to the paperwork so clinicians aren't sending out the same information on 3 different forms (or what have you). Work with clients should always be the priority.

    Pros

    The clinical team members are exceptional and caring individuals.

    Cons

    The administration has a bottom-line mentality that flies in the face of good, consistent clinical care - it is a fear-based workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the front-line therapists


  3. Hostile & miserable environment

    Pros

    Paid well. Good benefits. Good place to get started.

    Cons

    As mentioned, "Senior Leadership is unstable. Company and jobs are unstable. Multiple re-organizations and changes in upper management have occurred and have not positively affected the bottom line or company culture. Attempt to adapt the philosophy, culture and values of the parent company Hartford Healthcare have been in process with little to no change. Direction and goals of the agency have changed numerous times. A number of programs continue to run in a large deficit affecting the overall bottom line and morale of employees. In the past year nearly all of senior leadership have left or been asked to leave." Co-workers were always miserable. Constant conflicts with administrative staff trickled down and created a severely hostile work environment.
