I have been working at EMQ FamiliesFirst full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The staff that are providing the work to the children and families are highly qualified and do a lot of good work out in the community. The staff respect each other and work well colloborating with one another.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations and responsibilities for direct service staff. The strength based philosophy does not apply to the employees.

Advice to Management

Listen to the employees who are providing the work and implement strategies to support staff to prevent good employees from leaving.

    Pros

    EMQ provided top notch mental health services while under the leadership of Jerry Doyle.

    Cons

    Employees working at EMQ give their heart and soul to helping children and families. Yet the employees are overworked, under appreciated and treated harshly for not meeting impossible standards. The work is intense and the employees should be treated with respect and honored for their strength, talent and commitment. The highly skilled, experienced clinicians are the first to go.

    Advice to Management

    The therapeutic quality of the care is directly related to the self care and work life balance of the clinicians. A work environment that is strength based, supportive and fosters creativity and a good work life balance reflects positively in the therapy room with the clients.
