    Pros

    Great supervisors (with one exception), dedicated staff.

    Cons

    High pressure without breaks, poor communications, turf wars between clinical and medical staff, poor understanding by some management.

    Recognize the good work done by clinical staff with less negative criticism, more trust in what is said by clinical staff and be more upbeat.

    I worked at Suncoast Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Definitely made you develop a thick skin and there was a great sense of joy when you were actually able to help someone.

    Cons

    Everything! The pay was TERRIBLE. I didn't expect to be making crazy amounts of money at a nonprofit, but I didn't receive a raise the entire 2 years I worked there, even with stellar reviews from my supervisor. Management was very cliquey and, if they didn't like you, your life was miserable. You would be picked on for the tiniest things and always made to feel inadequate. Constructive criticism is welcomed, but they just tried to tear you down. Working for a nonprofit, I thought it would be all about the clients, but it was all about the money/numbers. There were several instances where we stopped accepting uninsured clients due to lack of funding. Uninsured clients made up nearly half of the population we served. It was awful! Also, a senior manager instructed us not to give reminder phone calls to uninsured clients vs the insured so they were less likely to come in. Bottom line is that Suncoast is poorly run.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together! Value your clients and employees.

    Pros

    A good opportunity for new graduates who want to witness mental illness first hand on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Low pay. Not appreciated by upper management. As with most social services, they don't typically practice what they preach. Your family is expected to come last.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to pay quality employees a little more to keep them. Increase benefits to make the extra effort everyone puts in worth the sacrifice.

    I worked at Suncoast Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, ability to work autonomously, and ability to make a difference in the behavioral health world

    Cons

    Most of management is made up of people with a background in therapy, and they treat the people below them like one of their patients in a very negative and manipulative way. The COO is one of the worst out there, and she lacks the ability to understand what her staff actually does from day to day. She is all about power trips. If you're thinking about coming to this company to work, run now while you still can!

    Advice to Management

    Save for a few very good managers here, most of management needs to learn to look at the big picture and find room for change. Out with the old and in with the new!
