Feel Good Organization...
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLJuly 17, 2018
Lakeview Center is a great organization to be a part of if you are interested in helping people. There are many areas they provide help to the community, including (but not limited to): behavioral health, children's services, and foster care.

Although they are a bit behind where technology is concerned, they do use what they have to the best of their ability and are willing to look at better ways to do things, if necessary.

The culture is one of inclusion - almost family-like. They have various events throughout the year to thank staff for a job well done.

Overall, Lakeview Center is a great place to work.
Pros
Work/life balance, low cost benefits
Cons
Salary, although consistent throughout the area, lower than other places in the nation.

Answer inbound calls. Schedule appointents.
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLJune 15, 2018
a typical day at work consists of answering inbound phone calls and registering clients for service. Making outbound calls and scheduling appointments. The hardest part of the job is realizing that I can't solve everyone's issue in one call. The most enjoyable part is when the caller tells me that I have helped them get closer to their goal.
Pros
The abiity to help change a life for the better

West Florida Community Care Center
Behavior Technician II (Former Employee) –  Milton, FLApril 23, 2018
I loved working there, but it is unsafe. Management refuses to hire security, and almost all of the staff I worked with were assaulted at least once while working there. You get time off, but since they are so short staffed there is pressure not to use it, and even when you put in for time off months in advance they expect you to show up if they cannot find replacement. Behavior Technicians get a base pay of $9, which is not enough to survive or put yourself at physical risk every day.
Pros
it is rewarding work, extra shifts always available, shift differential for nights and weekends
Cons
dangerous, burn out, pressure not to take time off.

Business Office Manager (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLMarch 13, 2018
Management was not always fair. When you are a hard worker and have never been written up and all of a sudden there becomes a trust issue. Nothing more to write about them.

Counselor II (Former Employee) –  Fort Walton Beach, FLApril 14, 2017
Its a great place to start if you have no experience, but its not somewhere to stay if you want to grow professionally. Management literally gets away with murder and HR sounds helpful but intends to do nothing about it unless you want to pursue it with lawyers. Get in get your experience and get out. Pay is decent but if you want to get paid what your worth, you go somewhere else.
Pros
experience
Cons
management is unprofessional

TASC Evaluator (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLDecember 1, 2016
The leadership team lacked effective skills to manage and be consistent. While the claim was to assist others in overcoming life's daily challenges, in fact it hindered at times due to their desire to maintain control over budgets
The TASC position was straight forward and the leadership in this area attempted to be supportive and typically were much better able to communicate and follow through.

Staffing, Scheduling, Training Compliance (Former Employee) –  PensacolaNovember 16, 2012
A day started with a morning debrief for the person that was on call the night before. From there we see how many shifts still needed to be filled and started making calls. I was also in charge of keeping all staff's training up to date.
