I worked at Thresholds full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Overall, the organization does a lot of good for a lot of under served people. The work can be very fufilling.

Cons

There are drastic differences in quality of work environment and supervisors between programs. The pay isn't great and there is a lot of tedious paperwork (Medicaid), but this is status quo for social services organizations.

    Pros

    The people are great and thresholds does great work in the community. The employees genuinely care about the people they are helping and make a real difference in the lives of people with mental illness.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to operate efficiently when you are funded by the state of Illinois. It makes working their very hard and stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the benefits above average-it's the main thing that keeps people there with the lower pay rates. Time off and flexible schedules are a must!

    I have been working at Thresholds full-time

    Pros

    Working with the members of Thresholds has been some of the most rewarding work, I have ever done.

    Cons

    Terrible team leader...complains about upper manangment, very negative, irritable, disorganized...the worst boss I have had in 15 years of social service.

    Advice to Management

    When front line staff talk listen...not all seasoned team leaders are appropriate.
