Support from management
Every program within Cascadia is run a little differently. This review does not apply to all of Cascadia. However, I have found that the Leadership Support team does offer adequate support on actual job functioning, though there is no emotional support for the amount of things that support staff are dealing with on a day-to-day basis.
Suggestions for improvement
- The way management is run needs to work better with the staff for which they are leading. There are often very young women in these positions, which is fine, though they have a long way to go to be well-rounded leaders.
What I like about the company
Cascadia is a great company to work for if you are looking for work either in the mental health field, or are new out of school with a psychology degree. It is often that they find themselves short-staffed and love for people to pick up overtime. They provide great PTO and support to staff who need it. There can be high turn-over at times, so this job is for someone who likes change.
What I dislike about the company
Each facility functions very differently, though it sounds like there are some similarities between them. I found that staff are often requiring emotional support, as this type of work can be a lot more emotionally involved than the typical job. However, the support that is offered is for the job duties itself, and not for more in-depth emotional things going on. The management team has put themselves in a bubble, away from the rest of the staff. This barrier makes it difficult for staff to approach them with concerns. They are emotionally vacant when communicating.
