    Pros

    Plenty of training opportunities
    Flexibility in schedule
    Great opportunity to advance if you want to get into clinical work of management

    Cons

    Pay, management and constantly being held responsible for what clients do and don’t do.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to compensate their case managers properly. They are required to do so much yet they’re barely paid a liveable wage. I never understood how Intervention Specialists got paid more for doing less work. Not at all fair. Also, case managers cannot be held responsible for what clients do and don’t do. All we can do is provide the skills and resources and be as motivating as possible. Whether these ADULT clients decide to make a positive change in their lives is entirely on them.

    I worked at Wheeler Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were regular pay increases.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of staff and management - overburdened and burned out staff. Does not provide good clinical care (there would be clients who haven’t seen a clinician in weeks). This agency cares more about the bottom line than providing quality clinical care.

    Advice to Management

    See clients weekly and have realistic expectations of staff.

    I worked at Wheeler Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Said to be a fantastic workplace. Once began, it was everything but that.

    Cons

    The children are treated poorly by management. They refuse to accommodate any disability - instead find ways to fire or make you leave. People are forced to work 16 hours straight with no break. Loyal workers are forced to change their schedules often, forcing many to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Stop mandating people to work 16-19 hours straight. Treat children with care. Practice good ethics.
