I enjoy working with clients and it is very meaningful job. I met some excellent coworkers who know what they are doing and who genuinely care about clients. I learned a lot from very intense clinical experiences. However, it is low paid and my team has a very toxic dynamic. As a result, co-workers who care about clients are easily burned out and treated badly by some co-workers/leadership, and then they left. Coworkers who are not responsible get away from it and stay here to make free money, and the worst part is, they manipulate and attack people who genuinely care about what they are doing. When my team was led and composed by more caring co-workers, I loved my job. But with my current team and leadership, it was ruined.
Pros
A meaningful job, good clinical experience, I am staying for my clients
Cons
Low pay, management not helpful with toxic team dynamic

Compensation was a little lower than I wished for.

Very Toxic environment. Management and other colleagues were very unprofessional, not supportive or properly trained. Mistreated the patients on a daily basis by speaking to them in demeaning ways, not keeping their information confidential and mishandling their cases.

I love my clients and love working at CO but the pay was super low for a mental health counselor job. Micromanage to the core. You will not use office space at all. Traveling a lot.
Pros
Supervision
Cons
pay

Work culture could use some improvement; always work to take home and a lot of turn over due to staff being burnout. Compensation should match the amount of work you're having to put in.

Lots of training and opportunities with the company, but some positions can be stressful. Enjoy the company culture-there is a large effort to get people together and collaborate.

This company seems to value people who over work themselves and take orders from the top stake holders. They come off as if they intend well but once working there you may begin to question if they value their employees. Everyone is looking for another job. My coworkers were great for me most part and many loved their career filed but did not want to be working for the agency. The pay was not worth the stress that came with the job.

Carolina Outreach was my first job after grad school. They take the time to provide so much training that in your first 90 days of employment, you have finished most of your needed ceu’s for licensure. Being a recent grad, this was so needed for the transition into real world. They broke things down so thoroughly that they even explained how to sign your name with credentials. Supervision was included as well which is so worth it since it’s $50/hour or more! I felt heard during meetings and saw they took what I was saying and implementing due to the outcomes afterwards.
Pros
Benefits, professional development, supervision paid for, management
Cons
Pay depends on billable units, referrals were slow

Watched person after person leave this company. Yet management doesn’t seem to care. Everyone left for the same reason, too little money for the stressful environment.
