    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Riverside County Department of Mental Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, CalPERs retirement, stable job, good programs to help therapists become licensed, participate in student loan repayment programs, can transfer to different programs to prevent burn out. Get weekends and government holidays off which is always a plus

    Cons

    Compared to other organizations, county pass clinical therapists less money. It's difficult to change things, given it's hard to fire terrible workers due to unions and sometimes passive upper management

  3. "MSW intern"

    I worked at Riverside County Department of Mental Health (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interning at RCDMH was extremely rewarding; I learned so much about the mental health field! It helped me feel confident and prepared to find work as a new grad.

    Cons

    The only con I can think about is the politics that interfere with your work as a social worker.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    I experience a very integrative learning environment. Allowed the student to work independently and receive supervision individually and in group form through case presentation which helped with thinking and conceptualizing how to move forward with clients. Very supportive agency.

    Cons

    The workload can be overwhelming as with any other agency there just are not enough workers as opposed to clients in need.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more positions to be filled to ensure clients are being serviced in a timely fashion.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Some of the staff in the different departments are nice

    Cons

    This is a crazy, poorly run place. HR has no authority or power and new supervisors are given very little support to be successful. Horrible salary and benefits, not worth the sacrifice in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new supervisors are supported more effectively. If your administrators are firing so many new supervisors in a short period of time, there is something wrong.
