    Back stabbing supervisor Wharton in Coatesville

    BSC and MT (Former Employee) Coatesville, PA

    ProsI've tried to consider what might be positive about the location, environment, supervision and work, but I cannot find anything except that there was a kitchen in the office.

    ConsWorking without much assistance from supervisors. Being told "I'm giving you this difficult case because I think you can handle it." But, that really meant I'm setting you up to fail because everyone else has failed too. Blaming client issues on the clinician. Do not make supervision sessions about productivity and bringing in money. Make them about how best to serve the clients through supporting your people in the field.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet to know all of your employees. Do not depend upon the supervisors to inform you about your employees. Perform exit interviews with all employees regardless of whether they resign or are let go. Make the environment one where "retribution" is not an issue. Encourage honest feedback because "retribution" will not be an issue. If a supervisor makes negative comments about an employee (current or who has just left), provide that information to the employee and give the employee the opportunity to face his/her accuser in a neutral setting where you, management, can hear both sides and make an enlightened decision.

    Beware

    ProsSteady work and able to use your skills

    ConsVery little support from management. There are favorites among the work staff and if you are not one you will not last.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompany is basically run by one guy and an "old boy" network Board. Main emphasis is make money. Step outside the box and you are history.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
