    I worked at The Centers full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Progressive PTO leave policy. Great mission.

    Cons

    Seemingly impossible measures imposed by the State for services Florida employees could not adewuately perform themselves with more funding than provided to nonprofits like The Centers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back some of the seasoned leadership or bring in new experienced leaders who will treat employees fairly and ethically and also will also manage resources to fulfill contracts.

    I have been working at The Centers full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The customers. The people working in the trenches.

    Cons

    Administration is rude, clueless and ego-driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the value of the people who are in the trenches. Understand that your employees pay YOUR salary. Understand that most people will be more productive if given encouragement and acknowledged for their efforts. Understand that most people will not stay in an atmosphere where they are treated with disrespect.

    I worked at The Centers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, plenty of Paid Time Off, mission

    Cons

    No real direction from management or directors, everyone seems to pass the buck to lower level staff and then fires them when they fail to do the job of the bosses. Constant changes in the way programs are run and very little respect or regard for staff not in administration. Senior level management has no clue how the programs inpatient and outpatient run nor do they seem to want to know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take pride in your employees, let them know they are appreciated so they can pass that feeling on to the clients. Listen to them! Understand that what you are being told by your "directors" is not necessarily the truth. Remove your blinders and see what is really going on before the community loses a facility that could be a great asset and one that is much needed! and stop restructuring!

    I worked at The Centers full-time

    Pros

    Thankful for the opportunity. Enjoyed working with the clients. Centers paid for a portion of insurance coverage, if the employee could afford it. Many could not due to low wages.

    Cons

    Never enough supplies, disorganized, very political. Compensation for some positions was seriously low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your hands dirty and see what it is really like.

    I worked at The Centers full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My coworkers and supervisors were great to work with and very helpful. The pay for my position (Family Care Manager) was good, but for my normal field of Accounting, not so good.

    Cons

    Even though we were paid hourly, with no overtime pay, we were expected to be available 24/7, because of our clients. Also, the amount of paperwork was overwhelming, to say the least!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get more help for your employees, as not to lose the really good ones.

    Pros

    Because they help a wide variety of children and families, they make a big impact on the community at large.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of their business and not much funding to work with, the employees are overworked for all they need to get accomplished and that causes much stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time with your employees, as I'm sure many of you do, to help with the struggles, as my supervisor did.

    I worked at The Centers full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are team players. Also in some instances you can work flexibility depends the position.

    Cons

    Upper management treated employers with disrespect. This company made so much unethical procedures that put in jeopardy clinical competence and clinician's license. Also, you have to work like a slave to complied with documentation and even so is not enough time to balance between your personal life and work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Administration should look into each department and clean the house.
