    I have been working at Community Healthlink full-time

    Pros

    lots of great people working there who are passionate about what they do and want programmatic improvement

    Cons

    Management likes to blame problems on staff. Literally have had management come to meetings and scold staff on their survey results for employee satisfaction. Management is often burnt out and does not provide adequate support or supervision. Everyone is constantly in crisis mode and uses it as justification to sidestep best practices. A lot of ethical violations from both staff and management. Management often engages...

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Community Healthlink part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Very supportive colleagues and supervisors are knowledgeable and helpful in reviewing clinical cases. There is a lot of passion for helping kids and families. Plenty work in the schools.

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement. No full time positions. It seems that CHL only offers FFS school based positions and full time positions are no longer available.

    Advice to Management

    Great management. Very supportive. Please be a voice for the dedicated and hard working clinicians who deserve opportunity for growth in the school based field. Hire full time staff, pay them accordingly, assist them in licensure, and they will stick around for the long run.

    I worked at Community Healthlink full-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours; a decent place for kids out of college to get experience in the field.

    Cons

    They have to be flexible, the salary is NOT commensurate with education or experience.

    Advice to Management

    Take a harder look at what the going rate is for talented, passionate, people... and pay them for their efforts; senior mgmt seems to find the funds to pay double-digit percentage increases for themselves.

    Too many managers, the union (complete joke), lack of support, lack of positive feedback, no opportunities for growth, no support from management, lack of communication, management works to keep division between coworkers (e.g.,front staff vs clinicians), benefits, lack of training, IT infrastructure is in the dark ages, management will throw you under a bus instead of supporting you, low morale, can be a hostile work...

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the management style, invest in your employees and you know maybe they'll stick around, provide and encourage licensure, improve the benefits package, allow for growth, work to reduce burnout and vicarious trauma among staff, improve communication would be a start.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ask about if someone has a qualifying disability so that you get credit when you are not willing to acknowledge and support that disability so that they can do their job sufficiently.
