A typical day at work was a positive experience. Some of the most dedicated staff I've encountered professionally. Many people made a lot of sacrifices personally and professionally to dedicate themselves to their careers and it showed in their passion and efforts.
Unfortunately the leadership lacked clear vision and could not articulate a meaningful – more... mission. True leadership requires courage and sadly that was rarely demonstrated at the top levels.
Overall the experience was a positive one, I'd recommend others to work their especially if their interest is in public service. However I'd caution them that the work can be frustrating when it seems the organization is just going through the motions, trying to do what it's always done, instead of a progressive movement of going forward in changing times. – less

flexible hours. Learned assessment and case planning, supervisor works closely with everyone and also helps out when needed. Co-workers are supportive. The hardest part is reaching the youth. The most enjoyable part is building a connection with the youth and able to relate to them and also them being able to trust you as a person.
Addiction Therapist (Current Employee), Bloomington, IL – January 3, 2013
Pros: good insurance plan.
Cons: low salary range.
I enjoy working one-on-one with clients during intake assessments for substance abuse treatment. I also have the opportunity to work with clients in the field while assisting them in accessing community services and provide emotional support. The company motto supports the idea of doing all that I can to make a difference in individual lives. Although – more... my co-workers have various jobs we all work together as a team to provide excellent service to the clients. The thing I enjoy most about my job is the flexibility job duties. Every day is not the same. – less
Data Management Associate (Former Employee), Normal, IL – August 7, 2012
Pros: flexible with time off
Cons: horrble pay, incompetent management, no advancement opportunities, little job security
This place of employment offers deplorable pay for the educational requirements, offers no advancement opportunities, and has people of low moral character in management roles. Furthermore, the whole GCC is probably going under soon anyway. They have already had one major round of layoffs in June 2012. Very clique-ish work environment where people will – more... literally go out of their way to avoid saying hello to you in the hallway if you are "beneath" them. – less
