You Will Not Find A Better Place To Work!
Clinician (Current Employee) – Springfield, MA – February 7, 2018
So I started at CSO as an intern in Outpatient and I did not think I was going to stay past internship, but the relationship I had with the supervisor and all management staff, my peers and the community I was serving were all reasons to stay on. In five years I have been promoted 4 times-that sounds too good to be true, but if you commit to this agency and the mission to provide effective, client-centered care and take advantage of the multitude of trainings, free CEUs, supervisions, specialized certifications, you are sure to succeed! It is amazing that for such a large and rapidly growing agency, that upper management is incredibly visible and down to earth. Your ability to make a difference in this field is lifted up here. As an intern even, I was able to serve on a workgroup to make our site better and more trauma informed. I was passionate about a specific population, so I was supported in adapting a curriculum to start a new group. This organization is led by some incredible women at all levels of management right up to our CEO- who is the smartest, savviest leader and change agent. I could literally go on and on and on about what an amazing place to work CSO is. Most of what the poor reviews say speak more to industry issues (low pay, productivity, etc) and guess what, our CEO actively engaged in taking on the state on to address these inequities and advocate for better client care. It’s an honor to work for CSO, amongst the most compassionate managers and staff and I have learned and grown immensely.
Commitment to staff training, special certifications in evidenced based practices, free supervision and CEUs, trauma-informed at every level of agency, autonomy, ability to make a difference and feel valued
Challenging field, but highly rewarding
