No opinion of CEO

I worked at Family Preservation Services full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Free supervision, plenty of opportunities for clinical growth. relatively speaking, fps offers a wide range of services in a region (Asheville) where mental health services are poorly lackingada

Cons

24k base salary is beyond ridiculously low
toxic work environment
they are a FOR PROFIT organization, profiting on the backs of lowly paid masters level therapists and the medicaid funds of clients served.

Advice to Management

raise the pay for counselors by about 10k per year and your turn over will lessen. company vehicles for staff that must work in the community. staff laptops with appropriate software. make the office a more welcoming environment.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Family Preservation Services part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is meaningful and the clients are interesting. The other therapists are all great: supportive, friendly and hard working. They really care about the people they work with.

    Cons

    The pay is miserable. The hours are very long. Although the company provides supervision, it is very uneven in quality. Management is focused on profit and not on client welfare "get them in and get them out" is the philosophy. The technology resources are minimal. Communication between management and the therapists is inadequate, slow and often misinformed.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and clients with compassion.

    I have been working at Family Preservation Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only positive thing that WAS in place was setting own hrs. I'm not sure it applies when you have to send your daily schedule to the office.

    Cons

    Inconsistency across the board
    Lack of direction & training
    No mileage pay
    Low pay
    Company's expectations are unrealistic
    Managements' attitude lowers morale
    The office is in Kernysville where there is a lack of transportation

    Advice to Management

    Develop a procedure manual for each individual office.
    Staff your office with people who want to work, not complain
    Outfit the office so it's welcoming- including appliances
    Ensure the office is CLEANED, stocked, and utilities: water, phones, and internet are in working order
    Have a computer system in place that is current and applicable to the job.
