Pros

Lake Villa campus was a phenomenal place to work as well as their upper management.
The company is growing and making efforts to start focusing on a stable population of people, as well as insurance clients. This will cause the company to remain open when other treatment facilities will be shut down in the upcoming years.

Cons

Chicago campus is a site that needs some work in terms of management, communication, and respect among the departments.
No pay raises ever
Insurance is super expensive
It's easy to burn out working at the Chicago site due to the work load

Lake Villa - The caseloads are too big. My largest caseload was 12 clients, running milieu, and running 4-5 groups per day. Individual time provided for the clients was less than what it should be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Compensate. Compensate. Compensate. Provide pay raises. Provide affordable insurance plans. Give the employees some incentive to remain with the company.

    Pros

    Generous PTO time when you can get it approved.

    Cons

    Gateway is a machine that cares only about the survival of the machine, and money means survival.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up.

    Pros

    Working with the kids is the only good thing about it

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment to begin with due to population, fellow employees make it worse. Employees are lazy, try to push their jobs and frustations on fellow co workers, back stabbing yelling, rules change all the time.
