    Pros

    The downtown office location is unbeatable. The lower level staff are great and treats each other very well.

    Cons

    This company has the worst bunch of managers that I've ever worked for in my entire career. Few have any idea what they're doing so everything is always a crisis and they micromanage you to death and will blame you for anything that goes wrong. Management never owns up to anything, everything is always a staff's fault. When anything goes wrong and lots of things go wrong at Beacon, the first thing they look for is who is to blame before they look for the solution to the problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is in desperate need of a management overhaul. Sell the company and let the new company do house cleaning of this top heavy bloated bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Had a great supervisor and colleagues within the department
    Lots of potential for the company

    Cons

    the company is experiencing rapid growth and isn't handling it the best way. There are a lot uncertainty, but the best kind I guess.
    Upper management needs to do a better job at communicating with the entire company
    Training is non existent
    Need to find a balance between the clinical and non-clinical side

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create cross functional teams and encourage departments to interact so people can learn from each other and grow their individual skill set at the same time. Take a synergistic approach.
