In home clinicians are overworked
Clinician (Current Employee), New BritainApril 15, 2014
Pros: mileage compensation
Cons: long hours, high case load
More of an emphasis on making the company money through billing than clients. Poor management, inexperienced supervisors and HIGH turnover with clinicians and supervisors. Unrealistic expectations, no ability for individual growth.

Case Manager (Current Employee), Hartford, CTMarch 25, 2014
Pros: mileage pay
Cons: too much driving no lunch time
My typical day at work would be communicating with the school officials, hunting the students down, making sure the they are in school and check on their academic progress. Work hand in hand with clinicians, attorneys, Probation and Parole officers, and with school officials. The hardest part of the job is ending services within six moths when the clients – more... is still in need of services. – less

Unethical company, therapists-run away fast!
Clinician (Former Employee), CTNovember 8, 2013
Cons: no morals, cannot move up, care more about money than clients
Company cares more about making money off clients than giving clients the care they truly deserve. You will risk your professional license if you work for this company. Management truly does not care about their employees wants, needs, or interests, there are no professional advancement opportunities. All trainings surround what wheeler requires, you – more... aren't given time to attend trainings that interest you. Therapists, professionals, anyone with a soul that would like to keep it- run, run away fast! – less

Great place to help those in need.
Transportation Assistant (Former Employee), Hartford, CTJanuary 25, 2013
I learned a sufficient amount on how to deal with juveniles and tactics on how to provide them with positive outlooks and behavior traits that would assist them throughout life. Management did play a role as the eyes above but they must when dealing in a non-profit field such as this one. The toughest part was preventing a negative atmosphere from arising – more... with several adolescents of diverse backgrounds being so close to each other but giving my all to these children was by far the most rewarding job I have ever had. – less

Their intentions to helping communnity and clients are lovely and very sincere.
Direct Care Counselor (Former Employee), Plainville, CTJune 29, 2012
Pros: upper management are constantly appreciative of all staff.
Cons: shift changes: should be discussed with line staff.
Coworkers always share workloads or divide tasks fairly and will rotate willingly. This makes the job easy to enjoy if the day is without incident; but with incident, you must fight the guilt of consequences that must be given to stay consistant with all clients.

Rewarding working with youth
Direct Care Counselor (Former Employee), Hartford, CTJune 25, 2012
Pros: fast paced
Cons: trauma of youth
A typical day consisted of providing a safe environment of youth in the group home meeting all of their needs on a daily basis. Monitoring all behaviors that residents exhibit. The hardest part of my job was the trauma that the youth have experienced in their life. The most enjoyable part was the progress that the youth would make.
