Building a bridge
Senior Residence Manager (Former Employee), Brighton, MADecember 8, 2014
Pros: job security, fantastic clients
Cons: high rate of staff turn over
Working for this company as a manager was difficult primarily because of a rift in communication and understanding between staff in programs and upper administration. Meeting deadlines in consideration of the day-to-day grind became my specialty, however not many were able to thrive in this position due to lack of supports.

Agency focused on productivity of employees.
Psychiatric NP/Prescriber (Former Employee), Mesa, AZSeptember 27, 2014
Pros: electronic medical record functioned well
Cons: focus on productivity with lack of focus on quality of care
When I left the agency 9 years ago the focus had shifted from from a strong therapy base and interdisciplinary approach to a basic medication management and productivity model.

Very fast paced and never boring
Mental Health Professional (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 23, 2014
Pros: recreational activities
Cons: no down time
Given the nature of the business an average individual would really have to be self-aware in order to survive. While managing a group home of mentally challenged young adults, I learned how to simplify lessons in behavioral management, social and independent living skills, therapeutic crisis intervention, conflict resolution as well as social responsibility, – more... school studies, grocery shopping and other challenging tasks one may face with a mental disorder. The expectations can be overwhelming. Raising a teenager on top of continuous paper work to track the services in which you provided each individual daily (total of eight) kept you with a full plate and an extensive to-do list. If you could make it in this line of work for more than a year, you'd make it anywhere. It was mostly a team effort given the support of my co-workers, making surviving every shift possible as you'd be taken on an emotional roller-coaster daily. Management had their flaws due to the demand of making up for lost funds from previous years which tend to trickle down to the child care worker level, so there was some inconsistencies. That was the hardest part of the job. The joy of it all came from seeing the youth learn and grow as they gained confidence in utilizing the tools and skills we covered with them daily.If you were able to catch a glimpse of that on your shift, it made any stress endured previously, vanish instantly. I have no regrets, I'd do it all again. – less

Challenging work with an under served population
Support Coordinator/Case Manager (Former Employee), Tucson, AZJune 3, 2014
Pros: being able to meet clients in the natural environments
Cons: driving long distances
A typical day at work was meeting with clients outside of the office, either at their day programs or at the homes. The families were always willing to talk about the achievements of the client, and having the ability to witness some of those achievements was encouraging. I learnt that people with special needs have the same desires, goals, and ambitions – more... as everyone else, and detest being treated "differently." The management was encouraging, and supportive with any decisions made by the case manager, and promoted 'thinking outside the box." My co-workers were from different ethnic, and social backgrounds, and we all learnt from each other's strengths, and weaknesses. It was great to meet in the offices of co-workers to discuss an challenge, and get different view points. The hardest part of the job was the inability to "help" everyone, but the most enjoyable part was the sense of having mad a difference in the life of a client with encouragement, and kindness. – less

Executive Assistant to the Controller (Former Employee), Hawthorne, NYApril 29, 2014
Pros: great salary and benefits.
Cons: upper management - they will let you go just because they don't like you.
Really liked my job at JBFCS. Unfortunately, I did not play their "game". Was fired after working there 5 years for bogus reasons. The real reason I was fired was because I was vocal about the violence that took place on the campus where I worked.

Chaotic Work Environment
HR Compliance Manager (Former Employee), Sarasota, FLFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: occasional free lunches
Cons: too many to describe
Nothing you do is ever good enough for this employer. The more you produce, the more they expect from you. They seem to thrive on chaos as they are slow to make decisions and reluctant to put procedures in place.

TEMP WORK (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: friendly staff, access to many client cases, access to connected gym
Cons: no pay, unattentive supervision
This place provides a great service to the community. It was nice to be apart of JFCS' efforts as a volunteer. JFCS is a good place to get MFT/MSW hours for clinical training as there are many clients cycling through this place constantly. It is a bummer not getting paid to work, and that seems to be just how it works out at most training sites.
