    I have been working at Helen Ross McNabb full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Most of the management staff work at the HRMC with the purpose of propagating the vision of the company which is to "improve the lives of the people we serve". Management that oversee supervisors and direct front line staff are wonderful and supportive. The pay is competitive, the benefits offered make up for the salary and the environment overall is nurturing and warm.

    Cons

    The administrative staff can tend to be disconnected from the front line staff. Overall the culture is positive though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring people with a passion for "improving the lives of the people we serve. Encourage long time staff that have lost that along the way to find it or move on to something else. It only takes a few negative people to shift the culture that has been worked so hard for.

    I have been working at Helen Ross McNabb full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    HRMC is a great company. As an employee, I feel valued and as though my supervisors have an interest in my own professional career growth. As an outpatient therapist, I am able to choose the theoretical approach that is best for the client and participate and co-lead weekly team meetings to provide the most comprehensive support for the client and one another as colleagues. I believe I am making a difference in the work...

    Cons

    HRMC rewards for longevity, and it can be a challenge as a new employee b/c there are some perks and benefits that cannot be received until working with the company for at least one year.

    Pros

    Promotions from within the company Support of upper management Team Work Health Insurance Ability to work one on one with clients Excellent retirement contribution by the company

    Cons

    No cons for me. I would recommend anyone interested in a career with mental health clients be aware it can be strenuous emotionally and physically so employees must maintain self care and a positive attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Continue recognizing hard workers

    I have been working at Helen Ross McNabb full-time

    Pros

    I really enjoy that there is such a therapeutic work environment in the program I work in. I feel like my supervisors genuinely care about me and my well being, and they do what they can to support me. I felt like there was a well paced onboarding process when I joined, and my supervisor was diligent in making sure I was properly trained on all the duties listed in my job description. I have found that all my co-workers...

    Cons

    The pay is a little lower for some jobs, but it's because the center is a non-profit organization, so they don't have the funds to match some competitive rates.

    Advice to Management

    Just make sure that you continue to support your staff members, and make sure that everyone feels valued! I know that my program does, but if that isn't the case for all of them, that would be my advice. Happy employees stay.

    I have been working at Helen Ross McNabb full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Knowing that no matter what position you hold at HRMC you are one of many working together as a team to help improve the lives of others. Amazing coworkers that are like family to me. Too many to list, but HRMC has some of the best benefits that I have ever received throughought my 34 year career of working various other jobs.

    Cons

    Hearing the real life stories & struggles that some of our clients have faced in their past, present and/or will be facing in their future weighs heavy on my heart. It can be very stressful at times, but the pros of working for HRMC far outweigh the cons.

    Advice to Management

    When you are considering someone for employment think to yourself "Would I want/trust this person to take care of my family member if they were a client at HRMC"
