Disparity among ranks/positions

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsDo great work for clients few want to deal with. Most people are there because they are committed and passionate about helping the alcoholic and drug addict. They are really trying to improve services. Have moved to an electronic health record. Room for advancement for good, hard working enrty or counseling positions.

ConsExecutive compensation is good--too good for how the front line workers are paid. Most of staff delivering services and managing are not well educated. Old modified therapeutic community is out-of-date model. Leadership changes in late 2012 have shifted a lot of the culture. Huge turnover.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay counselors more, hire top management with human service experience and put people in recovery and addiction experts on your board.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
