    I worked at Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I don't have many pros about Cascadia. Sometimes through the really bad services they provide people might get help. I worked in two of their programs and it was doubtful what mental health was provided. One pro is that from time to time they hire really great people who have a lot of talent and compassion in them. Sadly those people get burned out or realize they are not going to be allowed to provide competent services...

    Cons

    So many cons. As an employee offering mental health services, there is such a lack of oversight and real mental health happening. Employees are required to work long hours and have case loads that are honestly impossible to handle. When employees try to push back or get support they are often ridiculed or written up for their failures. Salary is also a joke. They messed with my salary so many times asking me each time...

    Advice to Management

    Actually show that you care about your employees. Stick up for them when you know too much is too much. Advocate for them. Also management needs to remember we are all a team. Mostly though they think they are higher up and act that way. Very superior and condescending.

    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.
