Pros: good people, nice time off, no issue having a family and working
Cons: weird management, tough to advance, pay stinks
When I left, I was happy, thinking goodbye to the poor pay and odd management. Actually, their time off benefits are terrific and it us a company of good people. They understood when people needed time off, etc. one thing I didn't like, even though I was part of it, was the management. It seems you don't have to be a good social worker to advance there, just stay for two decades. It is a battle attrition really. I also found that management is overly critical of their clinicians and often hire outside the organization to fill positions. They routinely fail here too, making turnover somewhat frequent. I wish they would just say thank you for the difficult work we do and not nickel and dime over interpersonal conflicts. We all work there to help the clients.
I do miss bay cove though and would consider returning if they paid better. it is an organization that puts the client first and it can be a rewarding place to work. No shortage of interesting characters at the higher levels. A good experience nonetheless.
