Support from management

The company does not care about employees or their feedback they try to make you think you matter by giving out yearly surveys but in the end they still do what they want & you can complain until you are blue in the face.

Teamwork

No, I feel it doesn't work in my department at this time. My department currently has 3 people who are extremely young and immature and I feel they make the department feel like we are back in middle school instead of a workplace. Another employee also agrees..it's all games and they have their little clique. We just come to do our jobs not to socialize and cause a ruckus.

Freedom to work independently

Yes, they leave you alone to work sometimes too alone.

Internal Communication

No, there is absolutely ZERO communication at this company....the right hand doesn't know the left hand exists.

Gender Equality

Everyone is treated equally as far as I can see.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The company doesn't appear to discriminate based on age as long as they have a body sitting in the chair doing the work I don't think they care about the age of the person.

Career Development

This company supports only certain people. If you are well liked and know everybody they will push you along and move you up. If you are not outgoing you will just sit there forever which isn't fair either just because you don't socialize with the higher ups doesn't mean you don't work hard or any less deserving. In this place it really is who you know.

Overall compensation for your work

No, compensation does not match responsibilities. The work just increases and increases and I've only received one raise in 5 years.

Office / Work Environment

If I could give no stars I would. Where do I start? No heat in winter, little to no AC in summer, leaky roof every time it rains sometimes you have to rip open a garbage bag and cover your computer to protect it. Mice running around and pooping in your desk drawer. Wild birds flying around in the building.

Environmental Friendliness

No we have no recycling program.

Work-Life Balance

This company does not care about work-life balance. My department we don't even get a lunch half the time which is ILLEGAL but the admissions just keep coming. Now they want us to work weekends starting in March.

Company Image

I used to be but not with the new re-structuring. I think they made a mess out of the place. Everyone is leaving it's just not a nice place anymore.

Job Security

I feel as long as people continue to use drugs I will have a job. I think the job has plenty of stability. There is always risk for job loss with any job.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, we are handicap accessible.

Workplace Safety

I have no clue but I would assume so.

Challenging Work

No the work is not challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company values diversity.

Workplace Safety

Minimal Training to meet regulations

Suggestions for improvement

  • There needs to be more balance within the staff and basic coursework for improved recovery support and planning.

What I like about the company

They are making an effort to assist clients in creating a transitional lifestyle.
I was exposed to the culture and taught to set and maintain boundaries.

What I dislike about the company

They express a low regard for their employees and this filters down to how these employees treat their clients, making a hard situation even harder.
