Compass Health Cares for its Community

Secretarial (Current Employee)
Everett, WA

I have been working at Compass Health full-time for more than a year

ProsThey offer great benefits, pleasant work culture, very positive most of the time. I haven't been there really long, but I like how everyone's work is so worthwhile. The people that stay there aren't there for the money and really want to help people. Communication is very open between upper management and staff.

ConsAs a non-profit company wages are lower, staff can get overworked and stressed.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Worked there for over a year

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Compass Health full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHelping a community in great need.

ConsAdministration often talks poorly about patients and other staff and gets away with it. Key people seem to allow bullying and participate themselves. Upper management does nothing about the bullying. Some hsve no people skills and should not be managing people.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management, please sxhool yourselves on how to properly take care of your employees. Learn some about disabilities and bullying in the workplace.

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

Poor Pay, Poor Benefits

Clinician II (Current Employee)
Everett, WA

I have been working at Compass Health part-time for more than a year

ProsCompass Health offers a good starting point for young therapists right out of graduate school. Opportunity to gain lots of experience working with a diverse population of primarily medicaid clientele.

ConsCompass Health offers very low wages for Master's level employees ($16 hour). Productivity expectations are high, and the clientele is very challenging. Benefits are poor, and the cost of adding dependents or a spouse to insurance plan is outrageous. Many employees that I work with cannot afford to add their family to the insurance plan, so their children are also on medicaid, just like the clients we serve. I just received my annual pay raise of 37 cents, and I'm not joking.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompass Health is a non-profit organization, I get that, however, there is no effort to focus on employee retention. The turnover at Compass Health is very high for a reason. Licensed, Master's level employees make less than the average receptionist with a high school diploma.

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

Very poor culture starting at the top.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Luis Obispo, CA

I have been working at Compass Health

ProsNot many. Good benefits if they'll give them to you. Stable industry. Healthcare isn't as affected by the economic downturn. Central Cali is a nice place to live.

ConsCulture is lacking in integrity and morals. Upper management misrepresent company values. Very shady HR practices and poor communication throughout entire organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk is cheap. Don't pretend to have high morals and values. Improve communication throughout all levels of company. Improve HR practices for all levels of company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Bullies get rescued

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Compass Health full-time for less than a year

ProsLots of locations and programs to work for. Ok benefits. Some employees are for real doing a good job.

ConsMgmt. provides workplace bullies a safe haven. Impossible schedule for a sustained time working all 3 shifts every single week for weeks on end (graves, swing & day). Excellent work not expected, personal friends are hired, so they are protected no matter how much work they refuse to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to listen to employees and invest in learning how to provide a harassment-free environment and don't expect new employees especially to deal with office harassment.

Co-workers were friendly, floor manager promoted a team approach to care.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Compass Health full-time for more than a year

ProsFriendly and caring work environment.

ConsDisparaging gaps between administration workers and health workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage a more united "culture" of care that incorporates and encourages administration and health workers to more freely communicate and interact for the end goal: professional caring and compassionate quality care.

unprofessional, poor morale, profit driven, great location, great patients

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Compass Health

ProsOne of the few places to work in the San Luis Obispo County, lower level workers tend to be supportive of each other, patients are remarkable and inspiring individuals, company offers workers a chance for entering the local College's nursing program

ConsThe company lost over 30 employees who reported being mistreated as the reason why

understaffed patient ratios, lack of essential supplies for patient care, letting experienced staff members to hire new people at a lower rate, false anonymous hotline, callers to the anonymous hotline are called in for retaliation, callers names are publicly given to others, promotions are given to those who are involved with upper management, work schedules are changed at any time without notifying employees

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease support your workers, profit is not worth more than happy patients and happy employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great employees, upper management controls employees by fear

Server (Current Employee)

I have been working at Compass Health

ProsGreat direct management, great tips good food. The hired staff is fantastic. Great Christmas parties and informative meetings. Will pay for half of the required footwear.

Consrequesting time off results in punishment of lack of shifts the next weeks. Schedule for the following week are most often not made until the day before. Most people are let go or made so uncomfortable that they quit. Have to clock out after 6 hours even if you still have work to do. (Dont want to pay overtime) If not, clearly threatened to be fired in an email sent by upper management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
