A mostly positive work environment with much opportunity to advance.
Pros: lots of personal support, training, and encouragement for advancing.
Cons: huge expectation for productivity resulting in long hours.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Children's Institute, Inc (Cii). There was lots of personal support for my abilities and encouragement to advance. Cii offered many training courses and certifications related to the job each of us was doing. My department handled some of the most difficult cases and, for a majority of my time there, the team I worked with was the top team in the Southern California area, producing the highest numbers in success of our clients. This success was due in large part to the support that was offered by Cii and the training that was available.
The only downside to working at Cii was the intense productivity requirements that took its toll on many people during my tenure. As I was leaving, they actually cut back on their productivity requirements. Overall, I had a very positive and successful time at Cii and I could say it was one of the top places that I have had the opportunity to work.
