Poor Management


Under the leadership of President Michael Garrett and his current administration, CNS has become a cesspool of corruption and unethical practices. The President replaced the former administration with friends, family and church associates, who are mostly African American with a track record of being racist, shamefully incompetent, unprofessional and ignorant. The Human Resources Director and her Payroll protegee are known for abusing their authority conducting random and quiet "witch hunts" throughout the agency for the sole purpose of harassing and eventually terminating employees and supervisors. The Human Resource Administration's unscrupulous business practices are deplorable and matches that of the City of Detroit. The Administrators, Program Manager, Case Managers, Clerical and IT Staffs are certified mentally ill individuals who are in/out of recovery, and in many cases, alcoholics, drug addicts, criminals with felony and prison records. Most of the workers are from the streets of Detroit. These are the professionals who are actually running the company and providing case management and psychiatric services to the community. Basically, this is one big clubhouse replete with a god-awful corrupt "talking head." The company is only as good as the leadership. It has been rumored that the CNS Administration and HR Director has been abusing and distributing the psychiatric drugs for personal profit. Due to the company's poor reputation, they have a very low hire rate and overturn rate. In 2016, CNS fleet of cars were quietly repossessed without giving the workers a clear explanation of what occurred. There were two Program Managers, who have worked for the company for several years, suddenly quit their jobs due to on-going harassment and bullying of the Human Resource Director and Payroll Administrator. On 10/6/2016, CNS had a poor turnout at their career fair to hire new workers. Based on their reputation in the community, no one showed except 3 clients who were immediately turned away. This placed the company is a desperate need of workers. The HR Director and Payroll Administrator hired several temporary workers with no formal or informal interviews, background checks or application for social worker positions. I personally and professionally would not recommend CNS as a job or career. I would not recommend CNS for mental health services to the community of clients in Oakland County or elsewhere. Most, if not all employers in Michigan are aware of CNS being staffed with administrators, program manager, case managers, clerical and IT staff, who are certified mentally ill clients in/out of recovery and the morale is extremely low. You don't want to be professionally connected or linked to the company because of their reputation, which is ruined in the community. The workers (past and present), and I have witnessed the deterioration of this company under the leadership of President Michael Garrett and his corrupt administration. For fear of losing their jobs, the workers are afraid of speaking out about it. Instead, it's the offices' quiet "water cooler" conversations. So, I will do the honors. It's in the best interest of Community Network Services and its clients for this President and his incompetent and criminal friends in Human Resources, Senior Leadership Team, Programs and his buddies in case management and throughout the agency to resign and look for employment that matches their skill set and low morale practices. The Human Resource Administration, who come from a pharmaceutical background, is totally unqualified for their positions. This is evidenced by the corruption they have displayed during their leadership. In addition, it would be beneficial for the company to conduct random drug testing on administrators, program managers, psychiatrist, therapist, clinical and clerical; and facilities management and staff. Many of the staff have the marked behavior of suspected drug abuse. CNS and the clients in Oakland County deserve much better. This company deserve much better.
