I have been thinking about pursuing business or IO psychology, because I feel like the therapy route won’t make me money and I’ve been told it’s highly oversaturated. That being said I don’t know if I’ll be happy doing IO psych, so I was planning to get a masters in clinical psychology and try to get my PhD in IO that way I can still practice therapy I’d IO doesn’t work out. Is that a smart decision? Or should I try to get my PhD in clinical psychology and just try to make 6 figures?
I was offered 3 jobs at 3 different hospitals in 3 different locations. One is at $24/hr in MA, one is $17/hr in Atl and the other is at $23/hr in NC. I'm not sure which to pick but I really would like to be in GA but coming from NY that pay isn't really cutting it. I asked to negotiate but haven't gotten any feedback and it's been a few days. I called and left a VM with HR but no response. The start dates are quick approaching. MA is a bit expensive and NC seems to be a happy medium. Thoughts?

Anyone hiring in the Raleigh Durham area or remotely? My background of 15 yrs is in Healthcare Administration/Marketing/Sales in both Retirement centers and Hospitals. Im willing to pivot into Medicare Sales or Insurance companies. Need a job ASAP I’ve been actively applying on all platforms but no leads so far. Thanks in advance 🙏

YMMV (Your mileage may vary)May 5, 2022 - Technical Advisor in Washington, DCRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Generally speaking a great group of people. And you basically can't get fired (unless you commit fraud) -- though that's a pro and a huge con depending on your work ethic. Pretty good benefits, though they used to be better.
- Your supervisor / project director makes all the difference in your personal experience. Some are phenomenal, some are terrible. - So much blah blah blah about 'JSI culture' -- ask junior/mid-level staff about the culture, rather than just asking ex-President’s “buddies' about culture -- you'll get different answers. - Zero consistency of policies/procedures across projects, offices, centers - Poor management, flat structure nonsense - Previous Founder/President was awful. - Nepotism / favoritism abounds (so if you're college aged kid needs a summer internship - you're in luck) - They say JSI is commited to 'hybrid workplace' but our conference rooms never work, cameras/audio are a joke. IT can't be found. - Very resistant to full time WFH, supposedly commited to hybrid workplace, but some supervisors want you warming chair again. Others are fine with WFH. No consistency. Not equitable. - Nonstop lip service about DEI; locally-led development, no one at the top cares. It's just business as usual. - Project-based, can be challenging to stay on if you don't know the right person or are in the right place at the right time. - Project based, little investment in country offices globally. - Poor growth opportunity, very little interest in growing junior staff (this is said out loud by managers: Program Officers have zero opportunity to grow, you are TOLD to leave, come back with more experience). - Very little opportunity to grow even for mid-level - Same management team for 20-30+ years - Dinosaur systems (Intranet, Accounting, IT - literally the IT team is led by someone incompetent in 21st century IT) - Minimal investment in communications / knowlege management (horrific systems seriously, it's embarassing) - While most colleagues are fantastic, there is some serious dead weight. Nearly every project has 1 dead weight colleague. And NO ONE WILL EVER FIRE THEM. We're all so nice, and polite, and forgiving.Continue reading

Good office culture, nice people doing good work.
Very very limited professional growth opportunities for junior staff. There is a huge gap between senior level management and technical staff compared to newer, entry level professionals. Career growth definitely depends on the particular team you are on.
