I worked as a provider for CCS. It's not for everyone is all I can say. Pros: for me was I enjoyed very much the patient interactions and the high acuity of psychiatric patients I cared for but. Cons: Management. For example the HSA at our site, under trained, very little understanding of healthcare policy or systems operations. My understanding is CCS employs 2year degree nurses instead of BA/BS or higher educated professionals in management roles. This makes for a difficult work environment. For example, HSA at our site cursed like a sailor when I'd approach with a concern, e.g. what the f*** do you want, grow a set of balls, were the standard replies I received. One quickly learns the HSA is not professional, not approachable, nor interested in any provider's concerns. For me this was the straw that broke it and I ended up resigning my position for lack of support from not just the HSA but any management I tried to take concerns to.
CCS for providers doesn't offer much by way of benefits, e.g I received 2 weeks vacation per year, health insurance was expensive (around 400.00/month for bare coverage), and their were no paid perks like cme, license, dea renewal, etc...pay for area is average I guess but overall it's lower than the national average. For example, position I accepted pays 15.00 more per hour than CCS and has nice perks just for comparison. CCS has both pros and cons in working there but for me I did not feel appreciated as an employee and I moved on.
