    I worked at Wheeler Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience especially for entry-level clinicians.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care if employees are overworked, and are not very supportive. Not much room for advancement in the company. Focus seems to be more on building their empire than client needs.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the value of your employees.

    I worked at Wheeler Clinic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Enjoyed getting to know fellow clinicians and staff
    -Good, well-rounded experience gained

    Cons

    -Too much expected of clinicians in too little time. Overloaded with paperwork, and no time to complete it. It becomes like a client factory, people in and out, with no time to prepare anything and give them what they need.

    They expect you to take home a lot of work, with no overtime pay.

    Advice to Management

    Block off admin time for clinicians. Lower caseloads, so that the work done is better quality.

    I worked at Wheeler Clinic (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Motivated staff who cared about clients. Ample chances for in-service training. Organization was very professional. Senior clinical staff had well considered vision for agency.

    Cons

    Supervision was not very direct. Workload could make job very pressured. Little empathy for problems with workload.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find a way to limit cases when the case-load is over-burdensome. More direct supervision when concerns are identified with individuals so that they can make improvements.

    "Great place to work"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Staff Development Manager in Bristol, CT
    Current Employee - Staff Development Manager in Bristol, CT

    I have been working at Wheeler Clinic (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been at Wheeler Clinic for 24 years. I have found job satisfaction and pride in being part of a company which helps over 30,000 people who come through our doors each year. There is a sincere desire to always improve our performance and to provide the best quality services for each child and adult who needs them.

    Cons

    The only con's I can add are that we are a non-profit organization. This is not the place to look if you want the top salary in a business setting. It is the place to work if you want great experience and the opportunity to truly make a difference.

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits offered, great time off and sick time.

    Cons

    Management does not follow work protocols and procedures. Upper management doesn't care about the employees. Managers will retaliate against employees and the employee has little support because they are all friends with HR. Management talks about employees to other management and fellow employees. lack all professional standards and they get away with it because if you complain or go to HR they will paint YOU as the problem.

    Advice to Management

    leadership is tenured and does what it wants, little to fix management unless they start from scratch in Plainville.
