    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

    Compass Health/Pathways provides an overall good work environment, with support to grow professionally and family-friendly corporate policies.

    Cons

    The pay is lousy, even for a non-profit. They under-pay for the work they hire you for, not the work you actually perform.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for the work they actually perform. I can make twice as much at another company.

    I have been working at Compass Health full-time

    Pros

    Able to get hours towards full licensure fairly quickly. Some management very helpful.

    Cons

    The pay is so low that it's difficult if not impossible to provide for yourself on just this income alone. Seems to be a disconnect between upper level management and various clinics. Difficult productivity standards that rely solely on your caseload, so if you do not have an appropriate caseload it will be difficult to achieve required results.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a reason to stay with CH long term. As it is right now there's no incentive for anyone to stay after they attain their state mandated supervision hours, and that only increases counselor turnover, which also reduces the level of care provided.
