Clinical Director of Psychotherapy (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – May 1, 2018
I have been with Carolina Partners for five years now and I truly enjoy my clinical work with patients and the opportunities for professional growth. I cannot say enough good things about the work/life balance at CPMH as a mom and a hard working psychotherapist. I feel supported in my clinical work and areas that I want to advance my practice and leadership skills. The Executive Team at CPMH 100% backs clinicians who have clear and creative goals for their practice and offer opportunities in a way that no other employment setting has offered in my 15 years in the field. I feel like I have made a difference at the end of the day, which is very rewarding.
Clinical Support, Schedule Autonomy, Really Great Patients
Some growing pains (as to be expected) related to expansion
Executive Assistant to CEO (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – April 30, 2018
The most enjoyable part of my job is the culture. This job is hard work and can be stressful, but I've never worked with a group of people who encourage each other to grow professionally and personally, are excited to learn new things every day and that truly care about you the way the people at Carolina Partners do. The collaborative management style includes everyone and all opinions are heard and valued!
I've been able to work my way into higher positions through hard work and extra hours. If you are someone who loves to learn and doesn't mind hard work, you will excel here. I love the people I work with and the work I do. It's a fast-paced, collaborative, and rewarding place to work and I don't plan to leave anytime soon!
The biggest pros for me are collaborative management and opportunities for growth.
Enriching workplace environment & potential for massive personal growth
SEO & Web App Development Coordinator (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – April 30, 2018
I have worked for Carolina Partners for 4 1/2 years and have enjoyed it thoroughly. You are never pigeon holed into one specific job role or task, if the company knows you have a talent for something else then they will utilize that. Unlike most companies that hire you for one role and keep you there, Carolina Partners utilizes every talent that you have. Also, they encourage you to learn even more traits to not only help the company, but also yourself. As a life long learner, that is extremely important to me.
Marketing Director (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – April 30, 2018
I'm so happy that CPMH took a chance in hiring me and that it has lead me to where I am today. The management truly cares about how much you enjoy your job and will take the time to adjust if you are unhappy.
Executive Vice President (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – April 28, 2018
Carolina Partners is the best company I've ever worked for. They advanced me from an assistant role to Executive VP over the years, and taught me everything I needed to know along the way. This is an incredible company for people who want to combine ambition and hard work with doing good in our society.
Great culture, important work for the community, great pay and benefits
Mental health care is a calling, it's stressful at times and can be difficult to leave the job at the office.
I was an LCSW working at CP. They pay you $30 per session. You have to do your own scheduling, billing and intake in addition to your clinical notes and treatment plans. I was seeing between six and nine patients in a day just to make any money. When I needed help, there was no one from management available. I never felt backed up and management was only concerned with PR and client opinions because they drive revenues. Just keep this in mind: $30 per session, no benefits or paid time off and you're a 1099 contract employee so your tax burden is even greater than normal. I was busting my tail working 10 hour days just to make $36,000/ year BEFORE 1099 taxes. Terrible. If you're an LCSW, look elsewhere.
I love this company so much I doubt I'll ever leave
Assistant Vice President (Current Employee) – Fayetteville Rd, Durham – September 8, 2017
I've been working for CPMH since 2008 and started out as an Interoffice Assistant and now I work in the Executive Office. My days are long and somewhat stressful but it's a good kind of stressful - I'm challenged and feel like this company pushes me to be a better version of myself.
I worked my tail off as a "floater" and was promoted every year until I landed right where I wanted to be. Because I proved myself, they let me build my own department from scratch and I'm now doing my dream job and providing the company with a service it really needed. It's so rewarding that I don't even want to leave at the end of the day!
Employees are required to work 40 hours per week but I work closer to 50+ but that's by choice, not necessity. The compensation is right where it should be, the coworkers have become my best friends, and my bosses are super supportive. I think of them more as a "coach" than a supervisor.
This job isn't for everyone. Working in the mental health field is tough and there's politics at every level but if you give it your best, this company will certainly take care of you!
Great people, opportunities for advancement, paid time off
I moved from Tennessee to pursue my masters degree at UNC. I took this job as a way to stay current in my field of study. The providers are top-notch and the staff is SO friendly. They truly care about helping those with mental health issues. There are tools for development and advancement if you just work hard. It's a great company!
Benefits, potential for advancement, drug rep lunches
Can be a stressful environment, time management skills needed
Administrative Director (Former Employee) – Wake Forest, NC – January 2, 2017
Multiple emails sent daily about countless policy changes, lots of overlap in responsibilities amongst administrative staff that were not reflected in an increase of compensation. Empty promises made regarding 'opportunities to advance within the company'. On any given day you are subjected to numerous clients screaming at you due to someone else dropping the ball on insurance verification/treatment eligibility, etc - no solutions had been presented to remedy this complication as of 2016.
Fast paced workload, friendly service providers for the most part.
Free lunches if your office opted in, paid holidays
The "floater" position is challenging but a great fit for certain people. I am responsible for covering 8 offices if managers are out, and each office runs very differently due to the variety of personalities. If you're well organized, patient, and self-motivated this is a great position.
