    I have been working at Public Health Management full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the largest "non-profits" in Philadelphia County. The lower level staff truly care about our participants, those we serve, and improving the organization. A good opportunity as an employer for therapists/counselor just out of school with no prior counseling experience.

    Cons

    As a counselor or therapist expect to be overworked and underpaid. You will carry a large caseload and compensation is much lower than other smaller non-profits. Additionally, your compensation will not be equal or relevant to your education or experience level. There is little room for therapists to move up to higher positions, either within clinical or administrative positions. "Raises", if you get one, are the same, or less, than the cost of living inflation, so really, getting a raise does little in the long run. You cannot really say this is a non-profit as PHMC as a whole is always high in the black, while the umbrella organizations are frequently in the red (or so we are told).

    Advice to Management

    Counselors, therapists, and direct care staff deserve higher compensation that takes into consideration their educational and work experience, as well as scaled to the over all stress level they cope with on a daily basis. Do a better job in the hiring process to be transparent as to job duties in order to retain talented and passionate employees. Use funds more mindfully to improve program quality, train employees in more evidenced based practice, create incentives for hard working employees, and provide raises that are above inflation and reflect your employees' dedication and work ethic in order to retain employees. Commit to your program, the progress of your program, and be proactive rather than reactive. Recognize the hard work of your employees on the front lines, be open to constructive feedback from these people, and stop ostracizing workers who have fabulous ideas for program improvements you did not think of yourself.
