Negative Outlook

I worked at Federation of Organizations full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Intern-friendly workplace, help new professionals to learn their craft and even hires them as staff sometimes, opportunity to engage directly with mentally ill/substance abuser/ex-offender clients and assist in their recovery process.

Cons

Poor training (mostly online), poor supervision, conflicting and constantly changing priorities, always in crisis mode, emphasis on billing/documentation over needs of clients/staff, lack of communication & collaboration between depts (even when housed in same facility). Poor pay scale compared to other nonprofits. All of above leads to a burnout environment with a high turnover rate which has impacts on client care.

Advice to Management

Stop setting people up to fail. Get your act together as leadership.

    "My experience at Fed of Org was not as positive as I would have liked."

    Pros

    A pro of working at Fed of Org is the opportunity to work with a diverse population of clients from vast backgrounds and walks of life. Additionally, the counselor is able to familiarize themself with the other service providers, agencies, therapists, etc. that are available and currently working with this particular population. This is beneficial for making referrals, etc.

    Cons

    The communication amongst staff is lacking significantly. Also, there is very little supervision offered. The staff is not united as a team, which I feel reflects in the way that services are delivered to clients. The service delivery could be improved if the staff worked together with a joint vision for providing more quality, effective support services.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more supervision and support to staff members, giving them the tools to improve their effectiveness with clients, and inturn, increase the number of positive outcomes for the organization as well as the service participants.
