    I worked at Monarch (NC) full-time

    Pros

    All the wonderful people with intellectual and developmental disabilities I worked with each day. It was the only thing that made the job bearable.

    Cons

    Poor management, extremely high employee turnover, horrible benefits, meager pay. If you truly care about the people and do a great job with and for them, you will be on the bottom of the totem pole. If you can speak like a politician with a forked tongue, then you may be able to get decent hours with half decent pay. Never count on decent pay though. The harder you work for Monarch, the more they will take advantage of you without compensating you. I have truly never worked for a more horrible company. The only thing that kept me there were the members of the day program. I strongly advise anyone to think long and hard about working at any Monarch and only do it if you have no other options. If you do decide to work at Monarch, please don’t take your dissatisfaction out on the people served there. I saw this too many times, and it is not their fault Monarch is a sorry company. Seriously, be careful of working at Monarch.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Compensate them for a job well done instead of just paying lip service. Maybe then you could keep your good employees and help your turnover rate. You have a lot to do to get to that point Dr. Terhune.

    I worked at Monarch (NC) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have worked for many community mental health agency over the past 9 years in three different states, and this one has to be the ONLY agency in which I can't think of anything good about being an employee here. I don't feel that there really was anything GOOD that I enjoyed about the job honestly. I think anything beyond 6 months if you are working a direct care type of position with this agency is enough for you to learn what you can, get trainings under your belt, and move forward in your career elsewhere.

    Cons

    If you haven't worked there for at least a year and resign, you will NOT get paid out for any PTO that you accumulate during your tenure there. If you are a budding therapist, looking to really make an impact and difference, then Intensive In-Home services is NOT for you. About 65% of the job is case management and social work, maybe 35% actual therapy-related activity. Even with that small percentage of doing therapy, I felt that most of what was done was ineffective, as there is not much emphasis on therapeutic success in this type of service, only productivity and how much money is being made. Your typical overworked/underpaid type of job even with a Master's degree and license. Work-life balance is really non-existent because you are in a supervisory role and there is always something to do in order to truly be somewhat useful and effective (if you take your job seriously, as some do not).

    Advice to Management

    Evidence-based effectiveness because it doesn't seem that most of the individuals served in intensive in-home do not really benefit from the services because they almost seem pointless. The most important thing that management should pay attention to is the company morale as a whole. Everything seems to be focused on how much money is coming in and being micro-managed about every aspect of your job, which doesn't increase anyone's motivation to report to work each day.
