    Long hours, and if you worked off-shifts, the staff meetings had you falling asleep.

    Advice to Management

    Should have kept STACY!! Everyone makes mistakes, Al Rowlett and John Buck. It takes big men to admit it!

    Pros

    Employees generally are aligned with the mission of the agency although they may not be able to articulate it. Orientation

    Cons

    Low pay. Poor training/orientation. Patient population more than 50% over funding probably due to high need in the county. Policy and procedure manuals out of date 5-10 years.
    Not enough staff to serve the patients well.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and pay them more to promote retention.

    I worked at Turning Point Community Programs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyday is a new challenge and you get to meet all types of people.

    Cons

    No raises, standard of living increase maybe every two years. Members can be very difficult to work with, high paperwork demands, high turnover, only big holidays off, constant reassignments.

    Advice to Management

    Need to better prepare workers through training. Need to ensure workers feel supported when there is a dispute between a worker and a member. Need more staff appreciation events.

    I worked at Turning Point Community Programs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the members and co-workers, support from co-workers in very tense and trying situations due to member's mental illness; loved working with the members !

    Cons

    Weak Mgmt who want to make sure you know they are Mgmt and you ARE NOT. Billing is a constant issue and takes away from the work; CEO has favorites and only concerned with billing and making money; horrible pay and no appreciation from Upper or middle Mgmt . Needs to be revamped from the top (CEO) down.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation to everyone; not just a few and increase pay, that's why there is such a high turn over.

    I have been working at Turning Point Community Programs full-time

    Pros

    You will gain experience and clients are great

    Cons

    Direct service employees are very underpaid. Do not expect to get a raise. They will tell you they do not have a budget. However the new CEO still makes over six figures a year. They talk about social justice but they are unjust to their employees. If Your degree cost you a lot of money and time then do now waste your time here. They expect you to have at least a four year degree with a $11 hourly pay. No one can survive on that and pay loans. HR has always ignored complaints about co worker arriving late to work. Obviously some favoritism. also expect to work a lot of OT if not Management will make you feel like you are not a team player.
