Management works really hard to implement things to make the employees feel appreciated but it is not followed through in the different facilities. However the effort really is there.
Support from management
No, I often feel as I am getting told very different things from varying levels of management. Expectations are too high and especially for the low rate of pay they provide thier employees.
I think for the most part teamwork is there with the occasional disagreement. I feel backed up by my Program Director and colleagues.
Freedom to work independently
No, I feel like I am often having to justify actions to main management in California who are not interacting with our clients.
I think the company has its favorites to develop and does not put effort towards helping others grow and develop.
Overall compensation for your work
I love my job as far as working with my clients but the pay is atrocious and almost offensive. We are not paid what others in the community are currently making for the same job but yet often are asked to do more than other companies require from therapists and counselors. The lack of compensation and never receiving a bonus at times makes me want to quit due to the compensation not being appropriate to support myself financially.
Office / Work Environment
There is not enough room for the amount of employees that are currently working in the facility. People are sitting on the floors in other people's offices and staff office to complete necessary work due to space. Makes it very unwelcoming to not have enough space to do therapy for therapists, and write notes for counselors.
I am always being asked to work off the clock by superiors despite all the rules in the handbook stating it's against policy. Feels like j can never leave work at work due to other employees contacting me.
The company has had so many recent changes that despite me being a good solid employee I am constantly worrying about job cuts.
Our work is challenging but very worth it. Myself and my colleagues are very proud of the work we do with our clients and it is validating to see the progress our clients make.
What I like about the company
I love my colleagues because everyone really gets along well and can depend on each other. I enjoy my clients and that makes it worth going to work each day.
What I dislike about the company
I don't like the poor compensation and feel the upper management is disconnected from the facilities. When they are engaged it only usually means that a facility is being reprimanded and not for anything positive.
