The most stressful part of working at my partucular franchise us that the owners look at money as the priority, not diagnostics or clinical care. Low 8nxine patients are often negatively characterized as unreliable and inconsistent, and there are different procedures in place for low income folks than commercial insurance or EAP folks. Lots of white privelege ideology. I stay due to the flexible schedule and I will work with the low income people in a more reality based and culturally appropriate way. The income is unreliable as well. There are limited benefits. Individual health insurance would cost me almost 500 dollars a month as the company does not help with any benefit cost.
The most stressful part about working at Thriveworks has been having to watch situations where employees were given opportunities that they were ultimately not the right fit for. It was just so hard to see them struggle. Everyone did the best they could to coach and encourage them, teach them the tools for success, and help them achieve their goals. However, at the end of the day they just couldn't seem to make it happen and ultimately decided to leave. Thriveworks never fires anyone if they truly tried the best they could, and usually offers employees other opportunities that might be a better fit, but some employees have decided to leave. It's sad when it doesn't work out because everyone wants the best for each other. Usually they are able to part ways as friends.

There is always something to work on, but this is something I enjoy.
