Clinician (Former Employee) – New Haven, CT – May 11, 2018
This is good place if you're right out of college, but not long-term. Once you are licensed, you barely receive a raise. You will continue to make well below what a licensed clinician should make. They make it seem like you will get raises, but they find excuses to not give them to you. The hours are long and exhausting. Imagine working an a 8 hour day, then doing a 3 hour group or vice versa. This is a paperwork intensive job, and the paperwork is often more important than client care. MCCA has various contracts ( DCF, Probation, etc) that have their own expectations about what they want. Many of the clinicians would either come in early or leave work late to complete paperwork. This place will burn you out quickly, and upper management doesn't seem to care as long as deadlines are meant, and the money is rolling in from clients. Its all just factory work. There are no trainings offered for staff development, reimbursement for licensure each year, or any type of loan reimbursement/school funding for staff.
