    Pros

    Working at JSSA was very rewarding. Having input from professional colleagues was invaluable.

    Cons

    JSSA salaries are not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the staff evaluations so they truly reflect the individual and are not be calculated so all the evals from one department must equal 100%.

    Pros

    Excellent in-house training
    Strong intra-departmental support
    Paperless charts - database documentation
    Strong new leadership
    Regular, good clinical supervision
    Flexibility to move from full-time to part-time or contract as other obligations change

    Cons

    Poor salaries and raises - less than inflation
    Pressure to meet productivity/billable hours requirements, at expense of your 2% raise (for meeting goals) and possible job loss
    Little opportunity for in-house advancement
    Expensive employee contribution towards health insurance, especially for families

    Advice to Management

    Review how helpful productivity requirements are in actually increasing revenue, considering the anxiety they cause and the expense to staff morale.
