Great people at the lower levels, terrible management and organization.
Service Coordinator (Former Employee), Hillsboro, ORJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: great clients, great peers
Cons: pto policy, work conditions, low morale among staff, management
A terrible employment experience. Hands down the most rigid, entrenched management I've ever encountered within a private business or non-profit agency. Staff turnover so frequent that client care suffers. Caseloads beyond what is possible to handle for clinicians. My experience entailed working with very dedicated and caring therapists and support – more... staff who burn out quickly in the face of unrelenting bureaucracy and poor wages/benefits. That said, experiences seem to vary greatly by program. If you are considering a position, be sure to interview current employees in the program to which you are applying. If you are unwilling to do so, or unable, run. – less

We were impacting the lives of many people through out the life cylce.
Office Manager (Former Employee), Portland, ORNovember 17, 2013
Pros: great benifits
Cons: programs ending due to lack of funding
I rotated which site I started at each day so each day was different depending on what that particular site needed. I had meetings each week with the clinical team of each program, office manager meetings with other office managers once a month. I took care of petty cash, looked at previous day's census reports, made sure billing to insurance companies – more... were accurate. Coordinated with maintenance supervisor to make sure maintenance issues were taken care of, odered supplies and shopped for the residential program when needed. Organzied staff meetings for each site. Would trouble shoot issues and concerns. Supervised the administrative staff for each of the sites I managed. The management was hands off they did not micro manage the staff. The hardest part of my job was seeing clients relapse, commit suicide or hurt themselves. The most enjoyable part was seeing clients get it and finish the program and not return. Also the family or villiage like atmosphere created by the staff. – less

I enjoyed the people I work with.
Dual Diagnosis Therapist (Current Employee), Beaverton, ORApril 3, 2013
Pros: great co-workers and atmosphere
Cons: duii case management
The actual position was different than what I was told it was to be. Focus has been on DUII case management rather than working in mental health addictions. My mental health supervisor is understanding and quite helpful. I really enjoy my co-workers and the colaboration of care. Overall everyone is very knowledgable and willing to help each other. The – more... most difficult part is having so few actual mental health clients and the position focusing on DUII case management. – less
