    I have been working at Mental Health Cooperative full-time

    Pros

    You really get to make a difference in people's lives, and if you put in effort, you can form real therapeutic relationships

    Cons

    Not the greatest pay (it's a nonprofit, that's to be expected), and seeing the frequency of employee turnover is a bummer

    Pros

    Hard to think of any... guess a paycheck?

    Cons

    Constant high turnover because the pay is so low but work load is so high. Unrealistic stats. Upper management could not do a case managers job, they are so out of touch.

    I have been working at Mental Health Cooperative full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PTO accumulates fairly quickly.The Flexibility has been great with having children at home. CMS is very supportive and encouraging.

    Cons

    Pay, Constant stat changes, unable to enjoy PTO due to star requirements

    Advice to Management

    Value your CM's. Stop making changes every other month. This adds additional stress to CM's in an already stressful job. Consider paying employees a longevity bonus.

    I have been working at Mental Health Cooperative full-time

    Pros

    PTO is good, benefits are good for the most part, flexible, love working with the clients

    Cons

    Pay is way too low for all the stuff case managers have to do. Lots of PTO, but you can't take time off without being ridiculously stressed and having to work over every other day of the month. Caseloads are too high and stats too unrealistic to provide quality care. No vision insurance. We're not supposed to give our cell phone numbers out, but they don't provide us with cell phones. However, they're always talking about calling while you're out, etc...with what?!? Not enough desktop computers for everyone unless you work in Metro. If you get a good supervisor, you will have a much better experience. However, if you're in the Dickson office, good luck!!

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay a substantial amount; less strict stat requirements, so we can enjoy our PTO without working over everyday; be fair and equal to satellites and not just Metro; hire supervisors that will help see clients; add vision insurance; don't say that you care and hear us and not act the same way. Actions speak louder than words.

    I have been working at Mental Health Cooperative full-time

    Pros

    PTO, flexible schedule, mileage reimbursement

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid! The amount of work that is asked of the CMs is ridiculous compared to the amount we are paid. Start out is 26k and those that have been there for years are still making less than 30k a year. The turnover rate is so high which results in higher caseloads and no increase in pay. The supervisor offers little to no help and seems to not like to be asked to help either while the upper management seems to be oblivious. There is never enough time in the day to meet stats and do notes, you end up spending hours doing notes at home after working a full day!

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay, address supervisor helping CMs, make doable stats with higher caseloads

    The pros are being able to accrue PTO, and Benefits
