Excellent organization with plenty of job opportunities
Community Support Specialist III (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 15, 2014
Typical work day consists of team meetings, scheduled visits with members in the community which can range from home visits, to doctors appointments, to advocating for members benefits needs to social service and external benefits agency collateral. Hefty amount of paperwork (progress notes, care plan updates, scheduling doctors and follow up appointments, collaborating with external health, benefits, and other community collateral) and no overtime pay even though working more than 40 hour work weeks. Management is excellent in trying to work with staff to help develop clinical and professional skills and is actively involved in encouraging and supporting staff that are experiencing challenges with adjustments to work environment. Most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know and work with amazing members that expose staff to various mental health diagnoses, life experiences, and cherished moments that promote and encourage staff growth both professionally and personally.
Pros
Make your own schedule for the day, support from team/co-workers, and great benefits
Cons
Hefty amount of paperwork, paid for 40 hour work week but end up working more than 40 hour weeks, little to no pay raises

Not a popular place to work

Great place to get a lot of experience!
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILApril 11, 2018
This is a great place to get a lot of experience working with people who suffer from mental illness and other comorbid issues. It is a non for profit agency that works with Medicaid.
