Property Manager (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – September 13, 2018
The facilities department is run by a moron and they won’t get rid off the old has been Maintenance Supervisor who should have been canned a long time ago!!! Just an awful company with no procedures or commitment to follow through.
Direct Care Worker (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – September 8, 2018
Management could benefit from team based training where they learn to listen and work with their staff. Work place is located in an area that's highly counter productive to client progress in treatment, due to being in a neighborhood known for high rate of drug use and violence. No scheduled lunch break, have to eat lunch while still working.
Good clients, friendly coworkers, mileage reimbursement
poor management, no possibility of overtime, possibility for advancement highly limited
Software developer (Former Employee) – Springfield – September 2, 2018
When I started, all 3 IT managers were demoted causing a hostile work environment. CIO has anger management issues and must suffer from other psyche issues and is extremely scattered. Former IT manager refused to offer assistance to learn the environment. Was full of resentment, rude and desparaging. I was warned by one of the other employees of the morale problems. 80% of the department resigned within a year. I regret staying on as I got consumed by the chronic problems there.
RESIDENT LEADER INTERNSHIP (Current Employee) – Contra Costa County, CA – August 11, 2018
Great Community programs at the Center for Human Development. There is opportunity for Community engagement, Training is also available. Workplace culture with different prams under one roof provides diversity.
The residents where great they really respected staff and our goal to make them better.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – July 17, 2018
We never really have a normal day at work it changes like night and day based on the mood of building. I learned over the years working there how to be patient with residents and staff and how to deescalate situations. Management was rocky we rarely received the right information and was always informed late on changes to policy and procedures. The workplace culture was biased the upper management and the floor staff always bumped heads due to lack of information. The hardest part of the job i would say was dealing with clinical. The clinical team had no communication with floor staff at all. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping out the youth teaching them skills that men need in their communities and in the world to survive.
Direct Care Staff (Current Employee) – Springfield, MA – June 30, 2018
Buena area de trabajo en me gusta trabajar con jóvenes removidos de los hogares. Aunque a veces se caldean un poco los ánimos (demasiadas hormonas juntas). El ambiente laboral es uno relajado. La cultura de CHD me fascina dan adiestramiento pagos por todo. Un poco difícil el proceso de comenzar a trabajar, pero es comprensible por la población con la que se trabaja. No me gusta mucho que paguen a 12.00 pero puede ser peor. También hay que usar el carro propio y se tardan en pagar el millaje. Espero que me paguen.
Ambiente relajado y poca carga de trabajo
hay que usar el carro personal y se puede pagar mas.
Second cook (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – June 25, 2018
The place was great working opportunity, however the kitchen wars were getting tiresome, everyone want to be a chief and no Indians. I all set with working in that location however I would work other locations.
Youth Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Spfld MA – May 23, 2018
The job itself is not bad. We do a lot of extended work in the community. I've met some wonderful people while networking for our clients. I'd prefer to teach them sustainable life skills that will endure over a lifetime.
Direct Care Staff (Current Employee) – Springfield, MA – March 11, 2018
between all new managers and all new clients, there is no communication here. You will be held accountable for everything but taught nothing and when you ask any questions you get the run around from everyone.
if you have good coworkers it makes it less stressful
Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) – Concord, CA – February 7, 2018
CHD is a team oriented, collaborative and peaceful place to work. The atmosphere is relaxed and management focuses on team building. Employees spend their time reaching out to the community to promote health and advocate for alcohol and substance abuse prevention. The agency also helps with conflict resolution and youth empowerment in the community and schools. Employees who work with this agency actually enjoy what they do.
Mental Health Therapist (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – February 5, 2018
All they care about here is making money and overworking their staff. My manager was never available, and had way too many people to supervise to be able to support any one of us. It's way to risky to take on this level of clients with such poor support. Clients are really tough and the quality of work that you are supported in providing is awful. Not worth the risk to work here.
