Case Manager (Current Employee) – Woonsocket, RI – June 2, 2017
Since I have started at the agency I have noticed the overwhelming amount of supervisor involvement. There is not a week that goes by where I am not asked by my supervisor or another one in the building about how I am feeling about my cases and if I need any help with anything. There is always someone to direct questions to. The caseload is also very manageable and I have never felt over worked. Additionally, the flexibility and benefits make up for the low wages. I think this is a great place to work and mostly a great place to learn. This job as case manager would be great for anyone but especially those that are new to the field. Because of the numerous programs that exist within the agency, there is always room to grow and learn new things about the field. Community Care Alliance is also constantly offering trainings and allowing its employees to advance and broaden their knowledge.

I see some reviews about the agency, but none of these are accurate for this particular program. (And some are quite exaggerated overall). This is a mission-based program providing an invaluable service to families. There is a great deal of flexibility for staff, and constant support from leadership. This is a great opportunity!
flexibility, supervision, support, benefits, decent salary for CM role

Fee for Service Clinician in Adult Outpatient (Current Employee) – Rhode Island – February 8, 2017
The agency does good work, has hard working employees and completes impossible everyday. It has been a pleasant experience, I am part of good teams with good people. We live in a world depended on by state and federal funding. We live in a world that is accomplishing tasks for people that others would not understand. Working here is difficult on some days and on others it is pleasant. Access to upper management is a pro and con, but being recognized by the President of the agency feels good because you know he is taking a personal interest in every individual employee.

This place micro manages you. They have the poorest leaders. They don't care about you. They make you drive down to Rockford, IL for one app. Undercompensated, over worked and stressed out. No sales with this company. Benefits are for the birds.

This facility is very helpful with clients who require acute care services, including medication management and detoxification services. The staff works as a team to help clients achieve their goals. For a community mental health agency, it is a good company to work for in terms of benefits and opportunities.

Scheduler Specialist/Interpreter/Admin. Assist (Current Employee) – Woonsocket, RI – April 25, 2016
Busy front desk, interaction with clients, managed clinicians and counselors calendar, answering telephone calls constantly, confirm appointments within 48 hours, take care of cancellations and rescheduling appointments, collect payments, write 10-day letters, call clients to schedule first time appointment. Close clinic. I have learned to pace myself in order to avoid errors. Managed 8 hour schedule to finish all day work. Co-workers are very supported. Hardest part of work is not enough time left to attend agency's committees. Most enjoyable part is to engage in interpreting services in different areas of the agency, because it breaks away from the busy reception desk.
