    Pros

    8 hour work day. Some of the people are nice.

    Extremely quiet office & expectation is for it to stay that way. Some of management have attitudes and aren't very warm.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be jerks to people who are suffering through something they can't control and make them feel like they have to apologize to everyone because of it.

    I worked at Community Research Foundation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There was some freedom in the treatment provided to the clients.

    Cons

    There were meetings every morning where everyone would give their opinion on how to treat each client.

    Advice to Management

    Seemed to be some favoritism with the manager and other clinicians as some of them knew each other from previous programs
