Excellent organization that provides a tremendous service to individuals in mental health recovery.
Team Leader, Thresholds (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 15, 2016
A typical day is spent helping individuals as well as groups get through each day of their lives. I learned about mental illness and the stigma that goes with it. I learned how the help members cope with their situations and help them to become self sufficient.

Productive and fun workplace with ping pong table
Community Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 19, 2016
Thresholds is a great company to work for if a person is just getting out of college and needs work right away that is not too demanding or high pressured. The only down side is that it is a nonprofit organization, and the pay can be a little low.
Pros
Free lunches, outings, creativity
Cons
high stress, low pay

Great and supportive staff, but overworked/underpaid
Counselor (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 26, 2016
The staff is laid-back and supportive. Mostly everybody is nice.If you have a problem, they are willing to help.

The burnout is high, the pay is low and some of the clients are very severe. If you're a counselor, you may be doing more case management.
Pros
Good insurance, understanding bosses, support
Cons
Low pay, overworked, feeling stressed, paperwork demands

Community Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 21, 2016
Overall agency culture is accepting and aligns with my ideals.
State budget cuts and lack of cost of living wage increase are reasons for me searching elsewhere for employment.

If need experience and no other place is hiring then this is the place to go
Community/Peer Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 28, 2015
I'm grateful for this position because it allowed me entry into the field. However it's at a high price. The environment is very toxic due to people not being paid well and requiring unachievable standards which creates a work/life that is out of balance!!
Pros
You get experience
Cons
They don't pay well and they ask a lot from the employees. No real work life balance at this place

Family Friendly with compassion for urgent situations
Agency Quality Assurance Specialist (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MISeptember 29, 2015
It is a pleasure to work for such a company that understands that some have families and have to coordinate schedules for sickness, doctor appointments, etc. Those choosing to continue their schooling are able to flex their schedules to do so. All of the supervisors use a Trauma Informed process in their supervision.
Pros
Flexible Schedules
Cons
Most workers are in cubicles

Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIAugust 27, 2015
Caregiving agencies today evaluate a potential employee’s ability to serve as a caregiver and provide ongoing training for all employees. For instance, Senior Helpers has initiated a specialized training program for Alzheimer’s and dementia care in conjunction with an expert in dementia, as well as training courses in Parkinson’s and diabetes management, two other ailments common in the older population.
Pros
When trusted and loving family members provide care, the pros are significant. Most important, worries about your child's or elderly parent's safety are greatly lessened
Cons
On the negative side, the burdens of caregiving can lead to resentment, burnout, and friction among family members, especially when the primary caregiver feels that others don't help enough.
