Sad place to be
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Zelienople, PAAugust 13, 2016
There's no team work.... It's every man for themselves. Power hungry upper management. No support from management, administration, or your own peer group. Little is appreciated and more is always expected. Individual groups of employee's by title, are treated differently. There's no consistency in work distribution, changes or enforcement of policy and/or laws. I wouldn't consider working here for you job seekers out there... And I don't intend to stay much longer.
Pros
There's overtime
Cons
low pay, inconsistent, poorly treated, power hungry management

Don't do it!
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Glade Run, PAMay 19, 2015
No advancement. No money. For a dollar raise people had to reapply for a job they already had. Management was sneaky. No help. They refuse to get up with the times and trying to understand their clients lifestyles. They are old school for sure! Stepping stone job or just to get out the house job.
Pros
You get a pay check
Cons
everything else

Horrible Place To Work For
Worker (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAFebruary 16, 2015
First, the agency pays terribly. Don't expect to get much benefits either. Direct care workers make about 11 dollars an hour and they have to have a bachelor's degree. If you have a Master's degree you can make less than thirty-five thousand. They don't care about advancement. The same people have been there for 20 years and are making outdated decisions. They play favoritism. If you aren't in the "in" circle of the agency don't expect to get promoted. Really unprofessional.
Cons
everything

Good entry level into mental health field
Job Coach, Appointment Facilitator (Current Employee) –  Zelienople, PAMay 26, 2015
This is a good place to start and get experience, but not stay. The people that work in the units are good people and care about the clients, but the administration doesn't care if you can pay your bills. Their raises don't keep up with the cost of living.
Pros
Good experience
Cons
pay

Poorly Run
worker (Current Employee) –  ZelienopleJuly 25, 2013
Still back in the 1960's with the executive staff firmly entrenched in their ivory tower. Corporate culture is poor with a vague sense of mission. Strict vertical chain of command and no communication between departments. Nice guy, but very weak, CEO in charge so we survive in spite of our poor misguided policies. Worker bees at the bottom do the heavy lifting while those in director positions muddle around trying to look busy. A recipe for disaster but we manage to survive - not thrive. Its a shame because abused kids deserve topnotch programs and better care .
Pros
scenic campus, animals
Cons
wages, outdated rules, lack of leadership, cronyism

It's a decent startup job for experience
School Based Therapist (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJune 16, 2015
Job can be very demanding at times, but employees are given breaks if needed and appreciated by management. It's an ok job for the first few years after college.
Pros
decent pay, work as many hours as you want, employee appreciation events
Cons
High turnover rate for staff and management, inconsistent policy demands

Just don't.
Mental Health Worker III (Current Employee) –  Zelienople, PAMarch 16, 2015
It is a job devoted to helping children in an environment that makes it difficult to do so. The majority of the staff are dedicated people who get over worked quickly and deal with inconsistent rules and management. The pay is below average and the ceiling is hit within a year or two. It has been and still is a good place to get work experience, but only for a short time.
Pros
plenty of over time. some excellent people to work with.
Cons
the pay is not equal to the risks and difficulty of the work.

Not a nice place
Intensive Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Butler, PANovember 8, 2014
management would "bash" religion and it is a religious organization, go figure. there was lots of favoritism, as one could go far depending who he/she knew. long hours and not enough time to complete paperwork. management had their favorites and would look down on others.
Cons
favortism

Unorganized structure
Family Based Mental Health Therapist (Former Employee) –  Zelienople, PAFebruary 23, 2013
Poor structure of the agency. Out dated forms circulating that people are not sure if they are to be implemented. If in the red, you can expect a pay cut. They do little to maintain employees thus a high turn over rate
Pros
jeans to work
Cons
poor structure, poor benefits and pay

A good place to work if you have a life and a family.
Manager (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJanuary 28, 2014
You feel cared about. You're encouraged to take care of yourself. There are opportunities for advancement. Best co-workers I've ever had. Flexibility in schedule compensates for lack of money. Hardest part of the job is that things are constantly changing.

Review Summary
Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Butler, PAApril 26, 2013
A typical day at the job? That is hard to describe because each day is completely and totally different. You typically set your own schedule with a partner you work with 70% of the time. You and your partner have at least 6-8 cases (families) that you are required to wok with uing Structural Family Therapy. If you are interested in staying with the company, within three years of completing the trainings you will be considered a Masters Level Therapist; but within the company alone.
I have learned much about myself, i regards to my morals and values. I have learned about families and their struggles, where they have been, and how they got to where they are today. I have seen a lot of abuse, reviewed traumatic and very personal histories of the family members.
In regards to co-workers, they are nice people. The only downfall is that you do not say in the office longer than 3 hours every other day. Your office becomes your vehicle, your trunk, and your own living room.
The hardest part about the job is not having a constant schedule, havin clients cancel repeatedly, working long hours, driving all over a county(s), having to change churches, clubs, places you go to shop because your clients either work there or are members of the same organizations you are a member of.
The most enjoyable part of the job is whn you are discharging a family; especially the ones you either could not stand and/or the families you were most proud of. The families you are proud of and/or like are far andfew in between.
Pros
setting your own schedule, good supervision, open-door policies actually implemented
Cons
not being compensated for actual mileage, driving everywhere, eating, constant text messages/talking on phone (all at the same time) in the car
