If you are passionate about helping others and understand the complex dynamics of domestic abuse and/or sexual assault, this may be a great stepping-stone in your career.
Be aware of the lack of leadership, inability to show respect or empathy, dishonesty or lack of transparency, unrecognized strengths of staff, knowing the staff is key to the agencies success, lack of empowerment, wrapped up in the politics of the community rather than the needs/protection of its clients, and lack of collaboration within the agency
Flexible schedule, no accountability
No accountability, low wages, no health benefits, no self-care

Counselor (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – December 31, 2017
My position at The Family Center was my first exposure to the social work and mental health field. The work environment was collaborative and positive. I was advanced to an afterschool counselor with one of the Grant programs my direct supervisor got approved for students that had experienced abuse at home. I also worked directly with donations for another program helping homeless families and low income populations in the school system.
Clinical Psychologist (Current Employee) – Falls Church, VA – December 18, 2017
One of the biggest clinical psychology private practices in the area -- certainly one of the few that still takes health insurance. Well-established, great history. Staff is comprised of genuinely good people. There is a mixture of seasoned clinical psychologists and residents earning their footing. The administrative team is also great. The work tends to be challenging yet rewarding. Great sense of community, and work-life balance.
co-workers are great; mission is helping people improve quality of life
Advocate (Former Employee) – Wisconsin Rapids, WI – July 14, 2017
This is a great place for someone fresh out of college that needs experience. This is a very highly stressful job. The most enjoyable part about this job is its flexibility in scheduling. With a poor training system, you must be a self-starter otherwise this job isn't for you.
