Some challenges with colleagues. Old guard failing to accept changing environment.

Staff are fun, the job is both productive and serious.

Staff are pretty chill and supportive. Sometimes there will be moments when a situation occurs where you have to be quick and responsive rather than reactive, where your mental and emotional stability is challenged and crisis intervention skills are needed.

Pros

Respected in the community because we offer helpful resources.

Cons

Dealing with degradation and undesirable circumstances.

Management is the worst

Working here was great at first and would be great for someone who is willing to constantly work 16 hour shifts. Staging is horrible and managers do not support their employees when no one shows up to relieve you, they just expect you to stay late. The only way to get a promotion in this company is to have a friend or family member on the management team. The nepotism going on here is ridiculous.

Pros

Most of the other staff are awesome and the clients can be amazing

Cons

Everything else.

dynamic, interesting environment.

There is no "Typical" day at work, every day is a new experience. Constantly learning and growing as a person- you face many challenges. Management at my site is very dependable and there is a team that looks out for each other. Debriefing with shift partners is what keeps me sane. There is an element of safety amongst the drug use and mentally undiagnosed. The guests and the staff 'lookout' for one another. There is a sense of community and togetherness.

Pros

rewarding seeing improvements and growth in established rapport with clients

Cons

emotionally, mentally taxing

Work as an SRW. The work we do is very valuable. But the opportunities for advancement are limited. With experience an education the salary is below the national average at 40, 000. There is no opportunities to gain overtime

Pros

training

no upward mobility

Rules and policies of the organization are inconsistent.

Policies and procedures are inconsistent, and that makes it very confusing for the staff. At some point it feels like the organization is completely in a laisser aller state.

Pros

people can bring their pets at work

Cons

People who are not into animals being at work don't have a choice
