Company Culture

I think there are some great coworkers but no one enjoys working there. It is clear that the company is focused on money and not clients, which results in miserable employees.

Support from management

Leadership is unrealistic and management is poor. Instability in the company and CEO is focused on money which trickles down throughout management

Teamwork

Coworkers are mostly kind and helpful. Some have been burnt out and are not as helpful.

Freedom to work independently

I give this 3 stars because you really don't have a choice in working independently. It is not quite being trusted but rather expected of everyone.

Internal Communication

Communication was poor and inconsistent across departments. Expectations were not clearly indicated and constantly changed.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most workers are younger and older workers tend to be driven out first

Career Development

The company initially offers trainings however the followthrough is poor. No trainings are offered any longer, there is not much room for growth as upper management cherry picks middle management.

Overall compensation for your work

The salary is above average however is not adequate for workload, as you often have to work extra hours and do not get compensated

Office / Work Environment

Technology often had issues and I frequently lost my work due to my computer freezing and shutting down. Environment is overcrowded and you must share and office.

Environmental Friendliness

There used to be a recycling program but no longer in effect

Work-Life Balance

The company will say they care about your balance and mental health however there is a lot of pushback on getting days off. You are expected to prepare everything prior to a vacation but when you return your workload is 10x what it should be and you have to attempt to get things back in order. Very little support so when you are very busy you have no help and they do not care/acknowledge when you work late

Job Security

There is much instability in the company with frequent changes, restructuring and downsizing.

Challenging Work

The work is very challenging in both positive and negative ways. Working with clients is rewarding but the environment makes it more challenging than needed

Internal Communication

Changes are a a every day thing but so is the employee structure. People leave as quickly as they come and there is not good system of notification. No communication about organization progress or plans.

Gender Equality

There are many women is supervisory roles.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There are some long-serving employees and a lot of them have grown in the organization. I don't see many gray hair employees.

Overall compensation for your work

Wages are pretty good but the benefit package leaves a lot to be desired. New staff have wot wait an entire year before they can participate in 401k. Bad in my opinion!

Job Security

I have been here for almost 3 years and it never feels secure. There are long timers but the employee pool is very transient employee pool

Inclusive / Diverse

Except for my supervisor, I don't see or know of non-white higher up leaders directors.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Not open to suggestions about change unless it comes from above. Change is poorly communicated.
  • Hire more hispanic or black directors. I used work in the admissions area when I first started no one was hispanic or black. All white managers. This is just an example.

What I like about the company

They help people with problems with addiction and mental health problems

What I dislike about the company

Cliques. It seems that supervisors hire their recovery friends or friends of friends. I am in recovery so I get it but I do not think it is the fair way to do things when you know your boss is friends with your co-worker.

Support from management

There is no upper management support , and if pt.care is having issues and you don't co.ply with management, you're fired

Suggestions for improvement

  • Reorganizeing of all upper management, more employee training, management especially the don to back up her nurses, they have a high turnover, more experienced nursing staff with acute care background. Not having a psychiatrist for a medical director. Real therapists opposed to social workers.treat all staff as equal,
  • Management that have compassion for the pts and staff.managment shouldn't yell at staff, and treating staff with respect and recognizing when staff makes a difference and give excellent care to the pt. Opposed to firing them.

What I like about the company

My coworkers and the m.d.s I worked with

What I dislike about the company

No management support. Untrustworthy bosses, management would rather risk pt. Safety for money , more structure for the patients , they company is driven by money and not the wellbeing of the pts.
