Nope (Current Employee) – not telling – September 22, 2017
You get to help people that really need the help and this is very rewarding. It's awesome, the best place ever. The supervisors always have your back. They use cutting edge treatments and the doctor there is super cool and helpful. Most of the staff get along really well with each other. The clients are usually grateful for the help they get at Prototypes.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – August 3, 2017
Wonderful company as in what their values and mission is. Working with those who have open cases with DCFS was hard and having your reports play a factor in them getting their children back was the hardest part. Therefore it lays heavy on you if you have children to go home too. Not worth the pay. Sometimes I had to babysit kids due to lack of staff or cook meals because no staff. Budget cuts I guess.
LMFT Senior Clinician (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – February 11, 2017
I enjoyed working with the staff and learning a lot about mental health. The coworkers were supportive of each other. I learned a lot about myself in working solely with adults. I learned I can make a difference and was supported through the process.
Prototypes enhanced many of the lives in the community by providing services for substance abuse, domestic violence, and mental health.
Substance Abuse Case Manager/Assessor (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – February 4, 2017
Prototypes was a wonderful to place to work. Everyone was client centered and focused on the needs of the client. In the department I worked, this entailed referring clients to substance abuse treatment if applicable. Our monthly meetings comprised of team building exercises which allowed staff from different work locations the opportunity to share skills as related to the team building project.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Current Employee) – California – July 6, 2016
Prototypes offers great benefits and time off. They are very understanding of family matters. There is not much room for growth, but a great place to learn about mental health. Management is very understanding.

Intake Specialist (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – March 24, 2016
Working at Prototypes allowed me to grow and gain excellent multi-tasking skills. In addition, my interpersonal skills have improved. The hardest part of the job is getting individuals with substance abuse problems to accept treatment. The most enjoyable part of my job was watching the clients that we work grow and better themselves.
poor management, hight turn over rate, little support to staff
Senior Clinician (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – September 30, 2015
This is a very poorly organized agency that has a long and continued issue with retaining staff specifically supervisors. While I was at this agency (Pomona site -outpatient MH) I went through more than 5 supervisor which speaks volumes of the several problems with management. Due to the high turn over rate with supervisors, interns often missed out on accruing hours for the BBS and did not receive proper supervision. Clinicians here are often overworked and are provided with little to no training and are not acknowledged for the hard work they do. The director at this site unfortunately is not very supportive. What made this job worth while were the clients and coworkers. I strongly advise you look elsewhere if you are looking for a stable and supportive environment.
the work one does with clients
poor upper management team, little support, poorly organized agency
Primary Counselor (Former Employee) – Oxnard, CA – August 9, 2014
Poor management and total lack of communication between staff. They throw you into the job with no training. Employees are stressed, angry, and dump their work off on the newest staff. Client care is terrible, because no one has the time. They underpay and overwork their employees. Very stressful work environment with no manager support.
A couple of staff members that made it bearable and the clients.
Poor compensation and benefits, unhappy work place.
RESEARCH PARTNER (Current Employee) – Salem, TN – December 2, 2013
My day at work start often with an self induced idea of a technology or product, often with a question of what if ? like what if we can store infinite amount of data our normal hard disk. then work my way up and down like, what will be the social, economical, cultural, political impact on our present society. and how we gonna do this. and start designing back and forth until i feel the complete perfection to my standards before revealing to audience/ customer.
I learned perfection and precision in the job and try to meet and set new standard in each and every product I designed.
we are two person team me taking care of research, design and development and my friend manages the supplies and sales.
my friend is the investor for this partnership firm and we try to realize one of our prototype as a international product.
hardest part of the job will be collecting relevant information and labor you need, while you still busy at designing the product. b'coz we need them now and then. so it goes like make a design and hypothesis first stop and try to find information and labor to prove or model that. then take the next step in design. it will be better if we have some to oraganize informations and skilled labor we ned in a project. we plan to do it in future.
what is more enjoyable than know new things and create new things and being in a whole new world of ours and ours own.
