    Pros

    good time off. Easy to get vacation or sick time approved. Depending on the location, most staff are pleasant.

    Cons

    You are not going to get rich working here. Health insurance is expensive. Not much dental coverage.Raises are horrible. Annual review and raise is sometimes a year late.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your leaders accountable. Performance reviews should be completed on time and salary increases given at the anniversary rather than consistently being several months late.

    Pros

    none none none none none

    Cons

    Does not provide opportunities or decent compensation to qualified staff. Retention rate is low because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money and time on the front end and invest in your people so you can spend less money on the back end recruiting and trying to hire. Turnover is more expensive than paying a decent wage and providing opportunities to staff who deserve it.

    I have been working at Chestnut Health Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    When I finished my undergraduate work, I was hoping to get an opportunity to help adolescents with drug and alcohol problems. Chestnut provided me that chance. What I loved about working there was that the supervisors are patient with you and are willing to help you every step of the way. Day or night I knew I could consult with my supervisor and not feel like I was a bother to him or her. If you really want to make a difference in a kid's life or a parent's life...this is the perfect job right out of college. They'll help you get certified in the field and explore more opportunities at Chestnut along the way.

    Cons

    Cons to some are the busy residential routine. There's always something to do for the clients or your co-workers. You'll start out workingbevenings, but with good work habits, you'll move up to better hours eventually. Salary is competitive with other jobs right out of school. There's promotions if you gain advanced degrees and/or experience.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for giving me an opportunity and giving me the platform to learn and improve each day.
