    It was very good job. I learn a lot and I really got more knowledge about Microsoft, being professional, consistent.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsHelpful and concern about the children. Learning that everybody can learn. Teamwork makes the dream work. My job was important to move the company daily to desired goals.

    ConsNot consistent in raises, evaluations, company promotions. Not very concern about networking on job opportunities. Not prompt to correct issues and problems on the job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more concern about your employees and you will get better result in employees working performances.

    Ascent review

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHelping the children is the only thing good about this company.

    ConsEmployees are not valued. Leadership doesn't care one bit about them. Leadership really doesn't know how to run a company.

    Clinicians are unappreciated.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsTypically a M-F, 40 hr week and an opportunity to work with children and families.

    ConsSalaries/pay is below state average for position and raises are difficult to achieve. There is a lot of micromanagement no matter your position. This company is not usually willing to work with employees that are having family or personal difficulties. There were a lot of people doing nothing and a few working their butts off. Clinicians are overloaded with work and do not receive comp time. In fact, they will dock your vacation time if you do not work a 40-hr wk.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect and show appreciation to all your employees. I know that many of them work very hard for you. Try to achieve a more balanced workload for employees. Tell your office staff to stay off their personal cell phones. Your clinicians need more support staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was a good career, some days challenges but overall enjoyable.

    Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsI love the children and being able to help parents get help for their children. I love working with others that had a heart of concern to help children get better and achieve goals.

    ConsEvaluations late. No Christmas bonuses, No reward vacations had to be accrued every pay period....Don't encourage the employees on good jobs done. There are cases were children are being physically, and mentally abuse and nothing is done to satisfy the parents.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a closer look inside the hours of the day at Ascent. Talk to the employees about their concerns and how they feel about certain issues. If complaints are constantly being turn in. Go and talk to those individual alone.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pediatric Day Clinic/Ascent/Acadia

    Mental Health Tech/Lead Teacher (Current Employee)
    Trumann, AR

    ProsThe pros of working at PDC is making a difference with the children. The experience itself. Helping the children and learning something new everyday from the children.

    ConsThe pay! Not enough vacation time. You get a point on the point system if you are sick. If you catch a bug from a child and the company sends you home you still get it counted against you. The rules change everyday. One day they tell you to do it this way next day its another. The people there are great but the company itself needs lots of improvement. The health insurance takes most of your check.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter insurance and treat employees like employees not like strangers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
