    Definition of insanity is Acadia

    Human Resource (Former Employee)

    ProsPatients, good employees who were at hospital before Acadia bought it out

    ConsThey fire CEO's and CFO's, Clinical Directors, and therapists, faster than speed of light, employees at all levels are hired and set up to fail without proper orientation or support from leaders, and systems and processes

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo you even have a strategic plan? The constant churn of employees is telling you a story are you listening? Manual systems where employees spend huge effort checking the work of vendors ?? Who are paid to do the job??? What is wrong with this ?? I wonder if your leadership team even knows thousands wasted on constant employee churn

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The last few months were horrible and completely overwhelming and patient safety compromised.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPay, pay, pay, pay, pay

    ConsThey ask for your opinion but if it's not what they want to hear, you'll be fired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour leaving yourself wide open to a law suit.

    Billionaires with no care

    MHPP/Lecdt (Current Employee) Trumann, AR

    ProsIts local, my fellow employees on site, and my patients.

    ConsWhen Acadia bought my company I was exicted thinking it would be for the best. WRONG. They seem to not have a care in the world about employee. We are always short staffed, do not get paid enough and its less than 9$ an hour, I have never met anyone higher up than our local CEO but feel the wrath of all the choices they make to save a dollar, they dont seem to care about our children that attend their clinics because by the choice they make you can clearly tell, and they dont communicate with staff period!! Oh and they have an occurrence system a patient has the stomach bug gives it to you the supervisor sends you home but you get an occurrence! !! Ridiculous

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo to a clinic and work for less than 9$ an hour in the classroom for a week and see what choices you make then. Communicate one on one with your staff. Cheaper better insurance and more pay. Due away with occurrence system and hire more people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No management support, no morale among staff.

    Program Counselor (Former Employee) Louisville, TN

    ProsIf you enjoy working with troubled kids, then there are a lot of opportunities for you to counsel them.

    ConsSupport from management is almost non existent, always short staffed, staff are in potentially dangerous situations with little help and at times single staffed when they shouldn't be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe kids are the ones who are suffering. It isn't all about the money. That isn't why the Village was founded and it is on a downward spiral.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
