Company Culture

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.

Teamwork

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.

Career Development

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.

Work-Life Balance

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.

Job Security

The company has had so many recent changes that despite me being a good solid employee I am constantly worrying about job cuts.

Challenging Work

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.

Support from management

Employees are monitored continuously impacting their professional/personal growth and development.

Overall compensation for your work

Internship opportunities are available. Employees are viewed as extensions of machines with low pay.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Democratic leadership style would enhance the organization in providing employees with job enrichment rather than job enlargement.

What I like about the company

Flexible with vacation time if requested in advance. Food/Snacks is provided on-site at no cost.

What I dislike about the company

Authoritarian leadership style. Minor consideration is given to employees as human beings with needs, abilities, or interests.
