    I worked at Trillium Family Services part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Solid management, benefits were good, they truly care about your health and are understanding of the risk of burn out. Would love to go back to work for them after completing degree.

    Cons

    Biggest con I would say is the lack of on sight training. What I mean by that is they spend a lot of time in the class room teaching you skills but I felt there needed to be a lot more on the floor in the unit training.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing bad to say about the management. They were always supportive and cared about the feelings of their floor staff.

    Pros

    overtime available, paid training, but other than that it was just no good from the start

    Pros

    Nice place, they work at the whole "trauma informed care" thing at a managerial level.

    Cons

    Upset someone,and you'll get shut down. Pay is mediocre. It's pretty much a mill for those with recent diplomas to get some real life experience and then move on. Not bad if you're using it for that, though.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what your low level supervisors are doing with/to their staff, and letting them create their own special niche workgroups is probably not in your best interest.

    I have been working at Trillium Family Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Trillium is one of the most well run companies I've had the pleasure of working for. They treat employees incredibly well and seem to put in the effort to hire people who really enjoy their jobs and care about what they're doing. Very supportive team environment. The work can be challenging and very taxing but overall the positivity and connectivity in the workplace make the hard work more tolerable.

    Cons

    The work itself can be intense. Not a company to work for if you have a weak stomach or low threshold for stress or crisis.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing to make employees feel connected and valued! Compensation, benefits, and work culture are on point.

    I worked at Trillium Family Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is alright and the hours are okay.

    Cons

    I started working here with high-hopes. The downside was the reality of the situation. My boss made me fill out the forums on clientele in a negative light to keep them there longer for insurance money. We were forced to infer mainly negative things. When I spoke up about this in a board meeting I was fired. The place is ran as a detention facility that rakes in profit. Most of the kids don't deserve to be here nor accept the treatment they receive. If people really knew what this place was doing it wouldn't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Get a soul.

    Pros

    Managment is awesome at working with you. They always make sure you're happy with whatever switch needs to be made and they give you breaks if your burnt out. Easy to get time off!

    Cons

    It's really boring, ideal if you have studying to do but most of my job is just sitting around

    Advice to Management

    Managment does a wonderful job, can't say enough good things about them

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, supportive environment, very rewarding, paid training, can have lots of fun, creativity is encouraged.

    Cons

    Can be stressful, clients can be violent, not the type of job that you can just sit back and relax in. Very low pay for the emotional toll the job can take.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more oversite, training and better pay. STS's should be on the floor more then they are.
