Mental Health Specialist II

8 years experience in Social Work. Have undergraduate degree in Sports Management and Masters in Social Work. Have taken the Licensing exam 3 times and failed. Will be 31 in January and am wondering whether I should continue this career path. If I did decide on another career path I have no idea what that would be. Currently making around 60k, would be happier in the 70-80 range. Wondering if HealthCare is worth it long term.. Any suggestions?

    Pros

    Good work life balance, good pay, good culture.

    Cons

    You don't leave a company, you leave a manager. I had the best manager for 6 months as a contractor. Hired full-time and the new manager is untrustworthy. Speaks out of both sides of her mouth. HR is no help.

    Decent Job

    May 12, 2021 - Certified Nursing Assistant CNA in Durham, NC

    Pros

    Good communication between staff and management. I consistently see the nurse manager and she is always polite and friendly. Expectations are clear and expressed to your from day 1. Given lots of polite feedback on how to improve. 6 weeks of hands on orientation, they do a very good job of making sure you are well prepared for your job.

    Cons

    The pay isn't worth the amount of work you are expected to do. You typically have 16 patients, and sometimes the nurses aren't very helpful. Some are incredible, but there are always a few who don't want to do anything to help the CNAs.

    Pros

    The benefits and retirement plan for monthly employees are excellent.

    Cons

    My current Sr. manager is great. My former one was terrible. No matter how much work you did, it was never good enough and it was never enough. His favorites were given excellent reviews and allowed to do very little work.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and that's about it.

    Cons

    It's who you know, not what you know. Experienced 3 restructuring episodes only to be given the axe in the third. Honesty with employees is questionable. Fairness in selection process is dependent upon the manager and the institution's hidden agenda.

    Pros

    Coworkers are hard-working, caring people who form a great team. Sr. Manager is supportive and trusts us to do a great job. Never micromanages, treats us like adults. COO knows everyone by their first name and appreciates our work efforts. Work from home is allowed and encouraged, schedules are fairly flexible. Salaries are fair for the most part. Excellent health care and retirement benefits, not to mention access to best doctors in the world. Free parking. Diverse culture with opportunities for all who work hard.

    Cons

    Building (not Duke-owned) is not in best shape. Mold present in ceiling tiles. But hey, FREE PARKING.
