What I like

They have a employee appreciation and Christmas event every year where prizes are given out. They also have tuition reimbursement but you have to work there for ten years. You can also have a work-life balance cause you can take off or leave when need without being penalized.

What I dislike

I disapprove of some of the rules. I feel they make up rules instead of following the ones that are in place.

Suggestions for improvement

How management interact with employees and the way they handle certain situations

They make you think they all about you when they really not. Management is not really great.

If you have something to do you can do it

I get a chance to make a difference in the lives of the people we service. It's a great way to get your feet in the door in the healthcare industry.

I would give paid time off for holidays instead of using employees PTO and I would give a better pay to positions

Review of River Edge - Milledgeville, GA


2.7
Not recommended
Former EmployeeWorked at River Edge Behavorial Health Center in Milledgeville, GA until 2017.

What I like

The teamwork and relationship that I have with my coworkers.

What I dislike

The pay; the favoritism; too many managers over the same people; too many directives; the bottom line is always money; too many responsibilities for employees, with no extra pay; staffing is always short, so you have to do everyone else's job, but they don't do yours, if you're out; the criticisms you get, while your accomplishments go unnoticed

Suggestions for improvement

Learn how to treat and pay people fairly, so you can have long-term employees.

Company Culture

1, on a scale of 1-10

Internal Communication

It depends. Sometimes, they give you the information. Other times, they just expect you to know what they know, even though they haven't disseminated the information.

Teamwork

In my department, we all worked together, but, other departments didn't work with us to help us, even though we helped them when they were in need.

Freedom to work independently

I was, at first, but when management changed, I was micromanaged, and it made me feel suffocated.

Gender Equality

I think they are. Everyone is way overworked and way underpaid, no matter the gender.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes. They are hired. I don't know if they are appreciated, but they are mostly supported.

Office / Work Environment

I loved the office in which I worked, although it could have been situated in a better location.

Environmental Friendliness

Not that I am aware of.

Handicapped Accessibility

The building is fairly accessible to handicapped individuals, and the agency serves such individuals on a daily basis.

Workplace Safety

Safety training is provided. The environment is generally safe, but you don't really know how violent/psychotic someone can be, until you are actually face-to-face with the person, unless a family member or friend is available to give you a history.

Overall compensation for your work

If I could give it a 0, I would. Work responsibilities far exceed compensation levels. Salary is nothing compared to surrounding areas.

Job Security

Jobs are fairly stable, but employees get threatened with losing their jobs, as they add on more responsibility, with no increase in pay, and no help from coworkers. There have been many threats about positions being eliminated. Some have already been eliminated.

Company Image

I used to be, but I stopped feeling proud a long time ago.

Career Development

Opportunities are available, but a lot of times, people will say they are going to help you, and they never follow-up with you.
