Difficult work, but a respectful workplace.
Mobile Crisis Team Case Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 15, 2014
It's difficult to work in crisis intervention, but DESC does its best to help their employees. The wages aren't the best, but it's not bad considering it's a non-for-profit organization that tries to help everyone regardless of other issues that might bar them from other places. PTO acquires fast, but that's because there are no holidays that are guaranteed off. Good for those who don't celebrate holidays like Labor Day; bad for those who hope to have Christmas and Thanksgiving off. The culture is relaxed--language, attire, even tattoos aren't an issue, as long as you're good to each other and your clients.
Culture, Pto, client-centered/harm-reduction approach, EXCELLENT (*free*) health insurance
No holidays off, lower wages
