Burnout
I really enjoyed all the extra skills I picked up here. The only problem is the amount of work is insurmountable, not to mention that they are severely understaffed. Their technology is very outdated and they are very slow when it comes to changing this.
Pros
Educational Assistance program
Cons
A lot of work, not enough understanding for employees or care, and severely behind in the technology Dept

Not worth the workload
Very demanding place to work and low compensation. Inconsistent with enforcing company policies. I would only suggest working here as a stepping stone for a MUCH better job later.

Bad management
Little to no support from upper management. Admin management "listens" and takes notes about employee concerns but no follow up and no improvements to make it more efficient on the day to day for us "lower level" employees. They overlook your concerns unless you are in their circle.
Cons
unsupportive

Amount of stress outweighs salary compensation
At first glance, Wayside appears to be a supportive and organized place to work. There are some polite employees, but during the times when situations get very real and heavy, especially with clients, actual support is difficult to find. There are many issues ranging from building problems (such as rodents, water leaking from ceilings) to the company's culture and politics (such as favoritism, gossip/rumors, unrealistic demands and expectations of employees). Wayside is very understaffed which adds a lot of pressure and stress on the employees. For a company that promotes mental health for its clients, it does little to support the mental health of its employees.
Pros
Helping clients
Cons
Low compensation, poor management support

Counselor teen mothers
I was involved with all aspects of the teen mothers daily life. I stayed at the house and taught parenting classes, nutrition, exercise classes etc.

I helped the girls with school work and getting GED's. I helped find day care for children. I also helped with finding appropriate housing when needed
Pros
The people I work with are so supportive.
Cons
The pay should be better.

Productive, busy
Interact with adolescents ages 12-18. Learn therapeutic approaches for managing mental health clients. Up beat, fast paced a lot of training learned on the work floor. Hardest part of job would be to manage your emotions while also managing the emotions of clients in program. most enjoyable part of job is when clients learn and apply what they have learned outside of program.

Worst Workplace
I wouldn’t tell anyone to work for this company. They have there picks and chooses who they like. They don’t like people of color. They will use you as a staff then get rid of you if they don’t like you. Management can’t take criticism, they want to dish it out but when the staff speak up they get upset then fire that particular staff/staffs or use another staff to do the job for them.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Management Sucks

Bad place to work
F A V O R I T I S M plays a huge role in this agency, lack of effective communication, organization. Staff says “they make the worst people supervisors”. Unrealistic demands, employees are underpaid and overworked.
Chew them up, spit them out mentality. Management is in shambles, which leads to a high turnover and unhappy employees.
Pros
None
Cons
High deductible on health insurance.
