Great Work Place
Cash Applications Specialist (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZJune 24, 2015
Have been at Providence 16 years. Great place to learn and grow because they encourage advancement. I have held several different positions over the years including medical records, admissions, quality management, billing and cash posting. Supervisors trust you to be on task with your duties but are there if you should need assistance.
Pros
Flexible Hours
Cons
would like better benefits

This job sucks the life out of you
Bsc (Former Employee) –  Stroudsburg areaSeptember 6, 2015
this company is awful. No one cares except the Program Coordinators. The work load is insane and you're expected to do a lot of additional work without pay. At this point you do not even get paid to speak to your family's on the phone however those families call all the time.
The PC's are amazing but also have an insane amount of tasks at hand. The case managers are inexperienced and clueless aside from 2. They are supposed to support the staff in the field but don't they are to busy eating or gossiping. Overall, the office staff needs training in management skills.
Pros
The PC's and some of the field workers
Cons
not getting paid for work

Enter at your own risk
Clinical (Former Employee) –  Peoria , ilMay 6, 2015
i have never worked for a more chaotic and unprofessional organization. The Illinois offices are under staffed, middle management has ver little support and ultimately the children and families served by the agency suffer. Administration is quick to sell accountability but are not capable of taking responsibility for the welfare of their clients and employees. Prepare to work 80 hour weeks without compensation.
Pros
Children and families were amazing to work with
Cons
everything else. Abusive work environment

CWCM (Former Employee) –  Naples, FLMay 8, 2015
There is little training and you really have to seek out your own solutions. Management is quick to jump on you when something goes wrong, but there is no support when you are dealing with a problem. The co-workers are awesome! They are a group of people who really care about the children, but are shackled by the high caseload and low support from management.

Very supportive and encouraging workplace
Targeted Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Hallowell, MEOctober 28, 2012
I learned very quickly that there is no 'typical day at work' here at PSC. Every day brought new challenges, and while the work I did there was very stressful, I always knew there were many avenues of support, and all were easily accessible. The management team was always available, no matter what level they were at. Expectations of activity and outcomes were clearly communicated, and recognition of achievement and/or recognition of effort was always communicated not only to the individual, but so that all employees were made aware! The hardest part of my job was leaving it. I developed meaningful relationships with my colleagues and I will be eternally grateful for the support and experience I gained at PSC.
Pros
flexible work schedule, more than ample paid time off, supportive management team

Don't waste your time even applying if in Kern County!
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaDecember 25, 2014
The management is incompetent, egotistical and untrustworthy. You will be made to believe that you are joining a strong team, however you are worked like a slave and treated as if you are just a statistic. You will never be treated as if you a re a valuable asset to the company. At least not with the ego driven management that over sees the Kern County branches. Some words of advice, apply at McDonald's before you apply to this company. At least you will be treated accordingly there.
Cons
every thing

Successful social service provider and BH Coordinator
Intake Clinician/Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Yuma, AZApril 16, 2014
A typical day at work for me was conducted intake interviews, evaluated eligibility, provided initial assessments including preliminary DSM-IV diagnostic categories, and developed behavioral health service plans. Initiated services as well as facilitated care and referrals for adults with serious mental and behavioral health needs. Monitored client progress, provided case management, coordination of services, and discharge planning through clinic appointments, home and community visits, and adult team meetings. Conducted annual and ongoing reassessments including eligibility determinations. Provided intensive case management services for adults with high acuity needs. Maintained electronic documentation of client records. Translated English/Spanish for doctor/client interactions.
Pros
limited supervision
Cons
exercised at will to terminate without cause

High paced environment with daily challenges
Medical Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZJune 3, 2014
The daily routine meant meeting with clients at med review, contacts via the telephone, and the occasional Child Family Team meeting. I learnt aspects of mental health that encouraged research, and collaboration with peers, and supervisor. My co-workers were supportive, and allowed for enjoyable environment by breaking up the work day with engaging conversations, and laughter. The most difficult part of the job was meeting the requirements of productivity while maintaining integrity, and ethical standards. Management was very stringent on getting the productivity requirements met, and there was no room for error. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting with the clients, and trying to meet the specific needs that best suited each. It was encouraging when families were thankful for the help provided, and an understanding that the purpose was to improve the quality of life for the client.
Pros
ability to work independently.
Cons
having to meet productivity per pay period

Clients and Families are great to work with
Behavioral Analysis Technician (Current Employee) –  Auburn, MEJuly 30, 2012
Very busy, lots of energy. Administration needs more structure and consistency. Co-workers are positive and flexible. The hardest part of the job is finding the balance between personal and professional life. The most enjoyable part of the job is the face to face time with the clients. It's extremely rewarding at the end of the day to know you made an impact and formed a positive relationship.
Pros
clients, families, compensation
Cons
paperwork, scheduling, administration

Run like a bat out of you no know where!
Therapist (Current Employee) –  North CarolinaSeptember 15, 2014
Horrible management. No communication. You all a question but never get a straight answer other than to send an email to so and so. Good luck getting a response. We want a well trained workforce but we don't pay you for it, pay for the training, and make you use your own time off for it. Use vacation time for training that is REQUIRED for your job. Headache upon heartache. Run, run, run.
Pros
zero
Cons

Large case load
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZJune 27, 2015

Intensive In Home Counselor (Former Employee) –  Roanoke, VAMay 20, 2014
I wouldn't advice or encourage anyone to work for FPS. The management is horrible and constantly lie to protect themselves. They don't care about the consumer's, families or staff. Minorities are rarely promoted. You're overwhelmed with paperwork.
Pros
continuous training
Cons
management, paperwork, negative attitudes from management

Tutor (Former Employee) –  Largo, MarylandMarch 12, 2013
A typical work day includes an articulate organization of tutorial materials accessible to tutors that instruct how to teach students to understand and be very effective and responsible in developing their own personal styles or skills of comprehension.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the cordial relationship between the variety of student families that offers the opportunity for a mutual understanding that cuts through the dicotomy of professionalism and personal domestic bonding.
The hardest part of the job was saying goodbye to eager students due to no fault of their own but because of lack of funding for the program.
Pros
parties
Cons
in-home personal work-space.

Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Abingdon, VADecember 30, 2014
For a large company Providence treats each employee in a manner more in line with smaller organizations. Flexible work hours and the ability to work independently within reason.

Horrible place to work
Intensive In-home (Former Employee) –  Bedford VAMarch 27, 2014
This is the worst place I've ever worked at in my entire life. They are unprofessional, and always are negative. There are no support given from supervisors, and the communication is not there UNLESS you do something wrong. They do not train you at all, just throw you in the school and say figure it out.
Pros
the co-worker are awesome
Cons
the supervisors
