Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
You need to have thick skin to work in this environment. On any given day, just like any other place where the client based suffers from mental health and addictions, you don't always know what you are walking into. The management differs from each site, some are super supportive and help the staff, and others avoid have do any work at all. Pay and benefits are good if you have a regularized full time line.

Pros

Amazing benefits

Cons

Unstable work environment

depend how you look at it

the job can be rewarding but frustrating. depends on the site, some sites are better than others. your position can be taken away just like that! Some Stewarts supports management more than the actual employee they like to try and give you a lower wage than the actual wage, to save money and staff use to have free meals.

Pros

consintly learning, free training

Cons

management need improvments, supporting their staff, Make less compare to other organizations, unfairness, toxic, need to kiss a** just to move up, they dont care who they hire causes higher toxity in the work place

Lookout

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

Cons

no upward mobility

Great people not so good leadership

I loved working with the clients, the staff and the job security made possible by a strong union. The new leadership is kind of slimy though and the organization is getting more and more corporate as it expands. Lots of talk and photo ops but limited heart. More of a focus on quantity over quality with the services and little value for creativity and community. If you toe the party line there is room for advancement but you may have to bury your values if you prefer a grassroots approach and prioritize activism and critical thinking.

Pros

great benefits

Cons

quantity over quality service framework
