ETA (Former Employee), The Jefferson School in Jefferson Maryland – September 9, 2014
Cons: no breaks, no lunch break, constant verbal abuse, and threats
This company is horrible to work for. They provide accurate training for self defense but you constantly have to worry about your physical safety. No amount of money is worth getting hit on everyday or beat up! The pay is not great considering all of the responsibilities they give to you. Great health insurance but I am convinced its because you will – more... have to use it frequently because of an injury from one of the kids. No way would I ever work here again! – less
The work was fulfilling and families were appreciative and receptive to learning
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner-Family Focus (Former Employee), 6501 N Charles Street – March 28, 2014
Pros: i gained a great deal of knowledge and the work was rewarding
Cons: i was not fully supported in this new role for seph at that time.
A typical day was providing individual therapy,medication management and certain evenings throughout the year were allocated for group therapy. It was my first position as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and I was able to gain a wealth of knowledge with individuals who were diagnosed with neurodevelopment delays. It was a warm work environment. The – more... hardest part of my job was that I was the first Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner on the SEPH campus and some were not open to this new role. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with children and educating families. – less
Social Work Intern (Former Employee), Ellicott City, MD – January 14, 2014
Pros: working within the smaller entity of a larger organization
Cons: limited opportunity for growth
A typical day involved completing individual and group sessions with clients after treatment team discussion. I learned that clients are often reflecting the dynamics experienced within their home/work environment. Management was busy with scheduling the training opportunity, Continuing Education in-servicing, and resolving processes involved with the – more... ongoing flow of intake and discharging clients for outpatient planning. – less
Administrative Assistant/Coordinator (Current Employee), baltimore, maryland – September 13, 2013
Pros: working with the children
A typical day at work for me is answering the phones and administrative duties as assigned. The hardest part of my job is not being backed up or supported by management when applicable. I have learned and still learning that things will not go the way you plan or invision, however, a job needs to get done. People will do whatever it takes to save themselves. – more... You will have co-workers that genuinely have your best interest at heart and those that don't. For the most part, I enjoy working here. The kids are fantastic and although you have your good days and bad days, I always see the sun shining. – less
Social Worker, LCSWC (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – August 7, 2013
Pros: free parking, education
Cons: bad management
I work in one of the day hospitals. The patients are great but the management is horrible. Always threatening to discipline workers makes it a very threatening environment. Workers are not treated equally and the boss has her favorites. Actively looking elsewhere.
Educational Assistance (Current Employee), Aspen Hill, MD – August 5, 2013
Pros: communication between the staff and faculty
Cons: injuries that may occur when handling destructive behaviors.
On a typical day of work, I would follow my assigned students around to their classes 1st - 6th. Provide assistance when students need academic help and follow the behavioral plan by going over their behavioral report cards. I have learned how to manage students who are difficult to teach, and how to interact with them during breaks or downtime. The – more... management is typically good. Supervisors may be in meetings and may be difficult to get in touch. The co-workers are very supportive especially in emergency situations. When a staff calls for backup on the walkies, there are always staff coming to their aid. The most difficult part of the job is managing students behaviors when they have difficulty handling changes.The most enjoyable part is when you can compare the students behaviors from the past to the present to see a positive change. – less
Patient Care Coordinator (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – May 12, 2013
Typical day consists of gathering information for morning treatment team rounds. This information is then presented and discussed to an interdisciplinary treatment team. Co-workers are great, work as a team. Enjoy working one on one with the attending physicians.
Hardest part can be the mental stress at times when acuity and census is high. Enjoy working – more... with the patients and seeing how their mood and health improves with the program. – less
