Child and Adolescent Therapist, Elk Grove Village,IL - April 6, 2015
To begin, I believe that this is a organization composed of good people who want to do good work, and provide a meaningful service to the lives they impact. However, there is a reason that I cannot give this place high remarks as an employee. When I first started, this organization preached a messages of helping people be the best they can. Client care was at the forefront, and learning opportunities to become better were ample. In the last 18 months, this has changed. The management in place cares not for clients,nor about their therapist. I watched the morale drop at this agency to the point that it was hard to find motivation to go here. Management can be very uncaring, often downright disrespectful, to the people which are its most valued resource. Morale here is low, but you will not have a better crew of intelligent and personable individuals supporting you. In my opinion, I would avoid here until a massive culture change takes place. The management on the current team I was on can only be described as aloof, distant, and poor. This organization will lure you in with some of the most rewarding and relevant clinical work and learning you will ever experience, this challenge you as it demands more and more of you to meet an unimportant number that has nothing to do with you as a therapist, but they will make you think it is. This will burn you out. They will make you question yourself, and they will leave you wondering why you come to work on a daily basis for the little pay and bad treatment by the individuals responsible for your growth and the growth of the team. Overall, the organization means well. But currently, I cannot give any endorsement for an individual working here long term.
