  1. "Rewarding work! The salary is low when you're unlicensed but you get a decent bump once your license is approved."

    I have been working at Community Reach Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move around once you're in the system. Great coworkers, rewarding work, good benefits, and great PTO.

    Cons

    Constant state of change and flux. Large caseload and high billable hour expectations, but that is typical for working in the non-profit sector.

    Advice to Management

    Be more thoughtful of implementing new changes.

    I have been working at Community Reach Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + I love the people that I work with
    + I feel that I am doing a lot of hard work to really help those who most need it
    + I see and can talk casually with a lot of people in the upper management
    + I am very well-aware of our management structure and feel comfortable approaching them for what I might need
    + I do feel that they try their best to make pay competitive
    + Lots of room to move to different positions and move up to management positions in the company
    + You frequently receive feedback on how to improve your documentation and assessing for risk
    + They expect perfection (this can be a con, as well) but it is a good challenge to keep on growing as a clinician
    + Clear communication from what upper management is aiming for and what that will mean for the ground-level staff
    + Lots of ability to receive consultation and supervision support -- getting support to get your license is very encouraged
    + Upper management is knowledgeable about how the world is changing and I think they are diversifying appropriately to make sure we are stable and don't have layoffs

    Cons

    - Management has wonderful and innovative ideas but putting them into action has been a mess. Often, we start implementing something only to be told a week later, "Stop doing it, we actually aren't ready for it."
    - Merit increases and any kind of increase between jobs are minimal, they will ask you to provide clinical supervision if you're licensed with no increase in pay
    - The unlicensed therapists report that their pay is very low and they struggle to make ends meet. I've heard that they don't offer an increase in pay once they get their license, only provide them with the minimal monthly license compensation (around $200/mo).
    - The outpatient therapists are overwhelmed and have very high caseloads, burnout is expected.
    - If you speak Spanish as a therapist, that is what you will do for the rest of your career at CRC. There is too strong of a need for Spanish-speaking therapists and not enough staff to fulfill that.
    - I do find that management could be more direct in their approach. Sometimes I feel those in management positions talk around a subject without directly bringing it up, I would prefer someone who I have a trusting relationship just tell me directly what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being available and clear with us. Just remember that implementing some of these big changes can mean we feel overwhelmed and unsupported at times. I would really like to see our upper management interacting with us more to show that they care and want to make sure we don't burn out of our jobs.
