    I worked at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare

    Pros

    An okay foot in the door for mental health. PTO was generous, but had to be taken as convenient to management. Extremely difficult to be fired, even intentionally sleeping during your shift comes with zero consequences.

    Cons

    When you're in the ECFs, you're not so much a clinician as you are a babysitter/billing machine. No self-respecting behavioral health provider would impose "quotas" and stretch the truth as far as Cascadia does to make money.

    I have been working at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Management cares and works with you, from corporate on down. They are inclusive and strive hard to make this a non-discriminating organization. The pay is good, the clients are amazing and the job is fun. I'm given a lot of autonomy, and I feel like I'm making a difference.

    Cons

    Some of the trainings have felt less than wonderful. There's just not enough time in the day to do everything you want to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.
