Not Saying (Current Employee) –  Not sayingOctober 17, 2018
FSL is not what it used to be. The old guard is gone and with them the original credo is gone too. New management has taken over and they have no regard for good clinicians & lack deep consideration for clients. It’s all about stats. They treat the chart and not the patient. It’s a sad state of affairs at FSL. The original mission of FSL has been driven into the ground. Shame on them.
Pros
Great client experience
Cons
You’ll be pressured to treat the chart and not the client

Supportive but Stressful Environment
Care Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Amityville, NYAugust 21, 2018
The staff is very supportive, but the clients can eventually take a toll on a person. You do get to schedule your days out which gives the worker some control. I learned about various healthcare systems. Management is good for the most part. Burn out at this job is very high. The most enjoyable part of the job is the large amount of time off.
Pros
Flexible hours, learned knowledge of healthcare systems, management is supportive for the most part
Cons
Burn out is high
