    I worked at Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great if you need your hours towards LCSW. Better fee for service pay than other clinics especially considering its half hour sessions. But expect poor consistency with clients so its difficult to have a stable income.

    Cons

    Regulations and “policies and procedures for work” are always changing which makes it hard to actually follow them. Stupid protocols made up on the spot it seems, and then it will change a month later. VERY poor clear communication between staff and supervisors/upper management at times which can get u into trouble if you forget. Honestly RUN if you want to have good mental health and not burn out. It was a very bad experience for me at the clinic I worked at. Expect to be let go if you cannot meet the VERY high demands of what they expect ...which can mean 34 clients a week on top of notes due every 24 hours the latest. Ive seen workers stay past hours just to meet these demands and let go if they couldn’t.. It’s the job of four people. And prepare to be your own secretary and have to write the notes on each call on top of EVERYTHING else. VERY high case load. Impossible. No work life balance and you will want to die after work each day especially If you have to meet salary “expectations”. I was targeted and fired for some reason. I cried everyday before work towards the end. Should have sued but didnt want to deal with the headache or see them anymore... I feel like I have PTSD from working there. VERY high turnover and noooooooo employee morale or support that comes with other jobs. Everyone is miserable.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating it like a mill. We are humans and want to provide quality services not quantity services because it makes us disillusioned and depressed which reduces productivity. Seeing a lot of turnover and firing makes the clinic have bad morale and RUINS client’s mental health. It’s not ethical. And its not safe for clients who are at risk.
