HR is the weakest link in creating a positive work environment.

Not to sure that these reviews were written by staff. Lol! There are many positives despite some major challenges with the clinical team, inhumane roatating work schedules and adversarial relationship dynamics between front line staff, HR and CO. The positives are the clients, the staff and the open environment when you can reach your clients in creative and non-conventional ways. Benefits are also good. I worked across programs and quickly promoted. The supervision and clinical support for clinicians is slim to none. Licensure and education are down played in this organization and profoundly lacking. The CEO and clinical director are very set in their ways, which seem to have made sense in the 60's. Technology , modernized and logical practices, and respect for staff feedback are not integrated. Hostile working conditions due to lack of appropriate computers, phones, copy machines and rotating schedule with a required awake overnight shift weekly. At certain programs staff work over 15 hour days. Clinical staff are deeply out of touch and many program directors operate on fear and lack appropriate clinical knowledge. After leaving and experiencing a healthy working environment, I strongly advise protential staff, most especially ASW'S, LCSW, MFT, MFTI and MHRS to explore other options in the Bay Area. There are far better opportunities, with better pay, clinical support, humane schedules, healthy relationship between staff and upper management and truly employee centered HR.
Coworkers, clients, benefits
