It's a relaxed, placed to work. People are friendly, and genuinely care about one another. There is a lot of work to be done, and some people don't like that--and others really like it because you stay busy and the day flies by. It's a company that grows about 50% a year, so you can imagine that things are always changing and there's growing pains all the time (but its also exciting). One thing I can say is that while there's a lot to do, nobody is asked to stay late or work more than their 40, mngt is good about that.

My coworkers are awesome. We really like each other and support one another. We laugh alot. We are busy, but it feels good. There is a definite separation of the therapists and the franchise owners....your typical management worker power differential, nothing any different than anywhere else. One thing I dont like us the lack of focus on the need to accurate in diagnostics. I am a stickler and I do them correctly and ethically. I did one time made to change a diagnosis because the referral source was a friend of the owner, and after I gave the person the diagnosis, there was gossip between the client system l, the referral source and the owner about how it was inappropriate of me to give the diagnosis I did. I revised the diagnosis, and stated there were strong traits that i was ruling our the original diagnosis and recisibg it at the direction of the owner. Politics should have nothing to do with therapy. Social workers need to remember it IS important to diagnose correctly even if there is no medication being offered. That was almost a deal breaker for me, but I need the flexibility.
They try to sell you on the fact that they have a good atmosphere and that the complaints are just from people who are lazy and don't like work. That's not true. The work load is outrageous and the pay is VERY little compared to cost of living in the area and national standards. You are scrutinized over everything and the environment is so stressful many employees have struggled intensely.
