Lacks Diversity even with Affirmative Action being a plus
Nurse (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 17, 2018
Hello, I find lack of African American Licensed Clinician, which make the work place tense being only AA licensed clinician at the time.Over the last few years, was terminated and leaves me to get singled out. Diversity is important part of the work place and according to CRF mission statement not being followed by the CRF programs. If you could look into the problem it could be the cause of the turn over and in 2018 this shouldn't be happening.

Will never run out of work, understaffed, underpaid. Management seems to know but laughs about it, Haa ha Job Security. For a place that does mental health they do not care about the mental health of their staff.

CRF is a great company to gain experience and there are opportunities for advancing your career, however management needs to work on a better method for documentation of actions performed so that it does not interfere negativly with work/life balance.

I worked for Ezperanza Crisis Facility and loved it. I worked 3 days a week 5 hours a day. I ran groups and help clients going through crisis issues. Helping them cope with some of there problems and helping them with how they can better solve them or work through them.
Co-workers are nice, and the population of people we work for are great

Teamwork is important, fast paced, stressful sometimes with no help Co-workers were great It was nice to help clts in need Nice holidays off Nice dayshift hours, but too much paper work to be completed at home, with no overtime pay
free lunches sometimes, good pay, nice holidays
case load difficult, too much paperwork, lots of work done at home-no overtime pay
PSR Specialist / Mental Health Counselor (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – November 4, 2017
Pay is way under rate for master's level clinicians. Hardly anyone, including "Directors" at programs are licensed clinicians. CRF offers many trainings, but I don't think I grew clinically in this position due to lack of quality supervision and management. Job is also quick pace - I never took a lunch break the entire time I worked at CRF and worked lots of un paid overtime

Community Research Foundation is a great place to work! The staff is amazing and the benefits are awesome. Since it is a non-profit organization; wages and advancement are not really available unless you are clinician or Psychiatrist.

As alluded to, no two days are the same here. Nonetheless, everyone looks out for each other, knowing that it is in the client's best interest. It is therefore easy to become friends with these and contribute to their recovery.

Senior IMAPCT is an assertive community treatment program dealing with co-occurring disorders. There are 100 clients shared among 10 clinicians. Management is very open to feedback and is understanding of stressors that arise in the work place and makes good attempts at helping their employees keep from BURNOUT. Hardest part of the job is progress notes, most enjoyable part of the job is learning and growing professionally from interactions with clients and team members.
MFT/PCC Practicum Trainee (Current Employee) – Southern California – March 2, 2017
The work is very challenging, but there is a lot of support. You can try out new things as far as therapeutic techniques, without anyone breathing down your neck. I gained so much experience here, I am a changed person, and much more professional thanks to these people.
lots of opportunities to get started in your career
