Pros: health insurance
Cons: no definitive job descriptions, no training, absent and abusive supervisors, lack of management, hostile work environment, no leadership, no team work, no human resources help, and absent supervisors and accountability to employees or clients
I would not work for The Salvation Army Clitheroe Center at this particular time because of the high turn over of supervisors, high turn over of counselors, constantly new untrained staff, and other supporting employees, and because of an extremely hostile work environment with no structure, accountability, or support for an employee.
The Salvation – more... Army Clitheroe Center, once a well respected non-profit. has become a very dysfunctional organization, that abuses it employees, allows a hostile work environment, and treats employees with as much as 12 years at the organization with unprofessional, unorganized, and abusive professional ethical treatment. Firing some 12 plus year supervisors on the spot, with no dignity, reasoning, or loyalty to those dedicated not to making money but to making a difference in someone's life.
The Clitheroe Center used to be a Clinical Program with
In the past two years The Clitheroe Center Outpatient and Residential programs have lost 85% of its Management, staff, directors, supervisors, financial, support staff, counselors, counselor assistants, and is not a place I would recommend to anyone at this time.
This environment cause a normally rewarding job that already deals with a high risk, high pressured deadline drive position to become in vain, unappreciated, and result in the employee doing 5-7 jobs for the pay of one job with expectations after hire. This protocol and lack of procedures , clear job descriptions, and lack of training causes stress to dedicated counselors who truly care about being an affective counselor. This occurs regardless of the employees title, efforts to want to be "on the front lines" in helping those in need, years of dedications, and loyalty
But with the loss of several directors, several supervisors, multiple (20 plus) counselors, Grants, Wellness Court, and staff it has suffered greatly.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the former Directors (two years ago) who were educated, doctors, licensed clinicians, and counselors dedicated to "doing only good", but sadly The Salvation Ciltheroe has now become a organization, that not only violates the "first do no harm policy", but abuses long time dedicated employees, verbally, emotionally, and professionally with no effort to offer a reasonable choice for firing, laying off, terminating or driving out with hostility, abuse, and unprofessional "constant new supervisors", who do not take into account those who have seniority, dedication, and loyalty. – less
