Clinician (Former Employee) – Connecticut – March 15, 2018
Okay place to get some experience, but not long term. Unfortunately, became sadly apparent United Services does not appreciate nor care about the employees. Constant revolving door, right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Upper management and “CEO” would greatly benefit to sit in a few sessions themselves for lessons on the appropriate way to treat another human being.
Management in intensive services is awful, No support ! Dangerous situations evolve and you are alone in shelter.Can't keep help! Management made workers move their desk to face wall because they would get more work done. Management in intensive services talks to workers like their in kindergarten.
United Services helps people all over the state struggling with mental health issues. The vocational department finds jobs for these people and has the job coach's go on site with them. Workplaces and participants are constantly changing, but it remains an enjoyable experience.
Little to no room for advancement, No pay increase
Client Support (Former Employee) – Danielson, CT – May 4, 2015
Overall an ok place to work, trust between management and employees was lacking.. co-workers were great! money was tight and employees did not receive a raise during my time there. Good starter place for employment, not career worthy.
Case management provided for adults diagnosed with prolonged mental illness.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Dayville, CT – April 24, 2014
Collaboration of service providers needs improvement at this time. Excellent co-workers which is the best part of the job.. The most difficult part of the job is that there is a huge and always present turn of over of all departments with the exception of management.
Generous time off.
No breaks or raises in 5 years despite union representation.
lack of trust from supervisors - too much papwework
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Willimantic, CT. – September 3, 2013
A typical day involves dealing with crisis, transporting clients to appointments, progress notes, assessments, treatment plans. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the paperwork, and dealling with daily issues of clients. Too much pressure from supervisor, detailed to paperwork.
