    I worked at St. Mark's Place Institute for Mental Health part-time

    Pros

    The best pro to working at the organization is the diversity of the client population. You will also gain exposure and skills in treating a host of mental health problems.

    Cons

    The major cons centered around the disorganized infrastructure and management of the organization. In addition, there are limited support systems in place for clinicians.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful for Management to build in a paid 1 hour staff meeting for all part-timers. This will eliminate miscommunications around new policies and reduce turnover.

    I have been working at St. Mark's Place Institute for Mental Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    St. Mark's Place has created a wonderfully warm and family-like environment that truly cares about their patients and the success of their staff. I spent almost four-year there and received excellent supervision under former clinical director, Peter Turco. The executive staff has an open door policy and is always willing to put aside their work to assist you on a case or help you manage your paperwork.

    Cons

    For those that complain about low pay, St. Mark's Place actually pays a higher rate than most other fee-for-service clinics. If you do your work (daily progress notes, treatment plans etc.) you DO get paid. And, if their is an error, the friendly staff is always available to help you work out any discrepancies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! And, thank you for the invaluable training experience.

    Pros

    Great to complete your hours for licensing. Very little oversight. Most patients are truly looking for help.

    Cons

    No meaningful or helpful supervision. As supervisors don't get paid for their time, they don't put any effort into helping their supervises. Employees have to scrutinize their paycheck and reconcile against hours worked to fight for proper compensation. There is a culture of secrecy and Polish employees are treated favorably.
