Therapist Intern (Current Employee) –  Pomona, CAMay 19, 2018
Residential treatment center that focuses on assisting walk-in and court ordered (LA County Drug Court and DCFS cases). Employees get along great. Some management is amazing to work for and others can be unorganized and demeaning. Some days are calm and go smoothly and other days can resemble working in the county jail. The program focuses not only on substance abuse treatment, but also in assisting women reunite with their children and assist in resources to help the clients with their criminal cases.
Pros
Able to accumulate mutiple intern hours.
Cons
Management can be unorganized and demeaning.

Nope (Current Employee) –  not tellingSeptember 22, 2017
You get to help people that really need the help and this is very rewarding. It's awesome, the best place ever. The supervisors always have your back. They use cutting edge treatments and the doctor there is super cool and helpful. Most of the staff get along really well with each other. The clients are usually grateful for the help they get at Prototypes.

Babysitting not for me
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Tustin, CAAugust 3, 2017
Wonderful company as in what their values and mission is.
Working with those who have open cases with DCFS was hard and having your reports play a factor in them getting their children back was the hardest part. Therefore it lays heavy on you if you have children to go home too. Not worth the pay. Sometimes I had to babysit kids due to lack of staff or cook meals because no staff. Budget cuts I guess.
Pros
co-workers
Cons
babysitting
