    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Telecare Corporation full-time

    Pros

    There are some genuinely good, kind people who work there for all the right reasons. The philosophy and respect towards clients that these people try to maintain is admirable. There will always be bad apples, but the new management (within the last year or so) is was doing their absolute best.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. It is chronically understaffed, and the overall company doesn't care about its employees. (Although middle management tries to be supportive.) The terrible pay means most of the employees who stay are under-qualified, and it shows. This is a job to take if you have to, and leave as soon as you can. They will always be hiring.

    Advice to Management

    Community health care and supportive services for adults with severe MH struggles should never be run by a for-profit company like Telecare. There is very little middle-management can do.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Telecare Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Helping clients and seeing them stabilize and make progress in their lives

    Cons

    Management doesn’t care about welfare of staff always short staffed. Very hostile work environment at Hope house. If you need the experience go but get out as quick as you can.

    Advice to Management

    Know that your employees are what makes the company and treat them like you appreciate them.

    Pros

    Compassionate, caring, competent leaders! You have all the tools and equipment necessary to do your job! HUGE opportunities for growth! The work you do matters!

    Cons

    Some of your coworkers are lazy, poorly educated and, frankly, worthless, they should retire already and do everyone a favor. It's not really fair to the company and the people we serve.

    Advice to Management

    Please release some of these folks already, they are bringing down the company. Please try to pay the entry level folks more. It would have to get better qualified people.
