    I have been working at Compass Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great chance to start your career in this field and get trainings and skills that would be harder to get with only a B.A. or lesser degree. Also, friendly coworkers and paid trainings.

    Cons

    Really bad coffee. No joke. Also, management is really young and although they mean well, do not have nearly as much experience as you would expect. That being said, no complaints yet and they work hard. Demands are also intense. Pay should be higher.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay by at least $2-3 an hour. It will increase worker retention. You can afford it.

    Pros

    Excellent chance to get a broad range of experience for a new comer. The experiences and different populations of clients I was exposed to and had the chance to work with was invaluable!

    Cons

    High staff and patient turnover. Work demands and requirements are intense. It is manageable, but you need to have strong self-care and support in order to maintain a good work-life balance.
    Patient care suffers due to the requirements to fit x-amount of patients in a day, complete assessments and take care of case management and case notes in a 40 hours work week.

    Advice to Management

    Patient care cannot be constantly adequate when staff are required to schedule up to 30 patients a week and be expected to complete assessments on top of that. Hire more staff to lessen the load on those who are there.

    Pros

    Friendly helpful coworkers, great place to get your foot in the door, Flexible(ish) hours

    Cons

    The worst paying company I have ever worked for. There is an employee that works in the same position as me, who has been here for 3 months, only has a HS Diploma, and makes over $2/hour more than me because of "experience". This person is younger than me, I actually have 3 children (which they wanted us to have experience with), and though I only have an AS degree, I am still way more qualified than this other person. It was insulting to offer such little pay to a person that actually has a family to support.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get your employees better pay... If you really care.

    Pros

    Several locations and positions available

    Cons

    Less-trained, "warm bodies hired off the street", hostile work environment, jealousy, personal problems brought to work inflicted on professional employees, feel ganged up on

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, deal with employees, make it a safe, professional environment, don't lie about the working conditions when you are aware there are problems among employees, hours should be correctly stated & not changed at the last minute, don't let employees gang up on professionally-oriented employees wanting to make a difference in people's lives

    Pros

    They offer great benefits, pleasant work culture, very positive most of the time. I haven't been there really long, but I like how everyone's work is so worthwhile. The people that stay there aren't there for the money and really want to help people. Communication is very open between upper management and staff.

    Cons

    As a non-profit company wages are lower, staff can get overworked and stressed.

    I have been working at Compass Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compass Health offers a good starting point for young therapists right out of graduate school. Opportunity to gain lots of experience working with a diverse population of primarily medicaid clientele.

    Cons

    Compass Health offers very low wages for Master's level employees ($16 hour). Productivity expectations are high, and the clientele is very challenging. Benefits are poor, and the cost of adding dependents or a spouse to insurance plan is outrageous. Many employees that I work with cannot afford to add their family to the insurance plan, so their children are also on medicaid, just like the clients we serve. I just received my annual pay raise of 37 cents, and I'm not joking.

    Advice to Management

    Compass Health is a non-profit organization, I get that, however, there is no effort to focus on employee retention. The turnover at Compass Health is very high for a reason. Licensed, Master's level employees make less than the average receptionist with a high school diploma.
