Horrible management that has no respect for his employees. The job can be dangerous and management doesn't provide his employees the tools to be successful.

This place promotes a hostile work environment among staff. They love to create a divide between nursing staff at all levels.
Even though when a new hire goes through the joke of a orientation in the NEO and is told there is no divide between staff, there is.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Staff does not work together.

Wow , what a joke ... Program director more worried about looking good opening up houses without having proper staff. Going against me orders undermining staff going with residents no matter what. Sola 2 houses aggressive residents with ones that can't defend themselves . Managers follow in line even when it's wrong to do so. Behavior therapist gives coffee card during bad behaviors.
Pros
It's a job
Cons
Watching residents get exploited for funding

It was an innovative workplace with a focus on the customer. Employees worked hard to ensure company goals were met.
Working with businesses was fun. Community partnerships at the State level were strong.

The only thing I don't like, is their Payroll Company. Otherwise, it works best with my Training and Knowledge. It is flexible with my hours and I get good hours.

Co workers are great. The population we serve sucks the life out of you. Supervisor is a great woman who supports her team. Coworkers always helpful and supportive of each other.

This is a call center and comes with expectations that you will provide great service very quickly. Social interaction is limited to the few minutes that you are not on the phone.

Compensation is OK
Coworkers are fantastic

Management is removed from clinical care and does not understand workplace challenges.

Organization is mainly focused on making money.

I love working with the patient population.

I would love my job if I had all of the resources needed to be efficient and effective.

I worked on a team of 6 reviewers for mental health agencies licensed by state of Washington. We all worked together to form a cohesive group and supported each other even when we were working in the field.

The state if Washington is a great organization to work for. Just like any other job, you get out of it what you put into it. There is opportunity for advancement and flexibility. There is a 1 year probation period where you learn to master your job.

Sometimes while trying to contact and figure out who to ask a question to, it can be tricky trying to get a hold of someone. There are so many different subcontracted companies that go with the job that it can be hard.
