    Pros

    Vinfen invests a lot of training into their employees. They offer many ways for the front line DSWs to reach managers for support and guidance. Management understands its a tough job while insisting on competence and encouraging excellence.

    Cons

    Care industry is tough, high stress, and detailed- way too much paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    less paperwork for more people-work is a good trade.

    Pros

    Employee input is considered and valued, routine supervisions allow employees to effectively communicate with supervisors and the benefits package is strong.

    Cons

    Communications between different departments could be improved upon.

    Advice to Management

    The industry as a whole doesn't pay well which causes a lot of burnout and short staffed situations, try to secure more contract dollars for salaries.

  3. After 7 years of working in various levels of Vinfen, I'd do it all again.

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the pay is quite reasonable for the field. If you are looking to use Social Work skills past the 50 minute hour than this is the kind of job you want. You get to see a client in most aspects of their life, not just what the present in the usual session time. The staff are kind and compassionate and want to improve people's lives. The work is rewarding and you get to see how people can progress with the right guidance.

    Cons

    HR and upper management are so worried about law suits that it is nearly impossible to move along staff that are burnt out and no longer helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Reward good staff and move along those that should no longer be working in the field.

    Pros

    Very supportive team environment

    Cons

    Management can be insular and non-communicative with regular staff.

    Advice to Management

    Involve ground level employees in day to day decisions.

    Pros

    Help the poorer members of the community to help themselves.

    Cons

    Fairly dangerous sections of town are the venue of this job. But you kind of know this going in.

    Management personel are the real culprits.

    Advice to Management

    If you award the job to someone, tell them they are welcome at the company and after a short amount of time (which
    is supposed to be a learning time anyway) you say "No you are NOT welcome any more". Leave. Now.

    Team leaders should be supportive not schizophrentic.

    Pros

    The coworkers and clients only are the only pros. Great staff, horrible management!

    Cons

    The management. They don't care about the clients, don't seem to understand their needs or anything about mental health, they lie to cover their butts and constantly put clients in danger and then try to cover it up.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the PDR division management, especially in Cambridge and Boston.
