Pros

Love client interaction Easy to work Decent co workers Good location A lot of time spent in supervision Yup yup yup

Cons

Micro managed style and a consistent sense of everything is a disaster poor parking Under payed compared to similar jobs in the area Responsibilities tacked on under " all other duties assigned by manager"

Advice to Management

Keep in Ming the people that work under the director are not clients and should not be treated that way watch you directors and make sure they are not using there power to turn a smooth running program into a stressful sauce pot

    I worked at Phoenix House full-time

    Pros

    Do 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.

    Cons

    Executive 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 Old modified therapeutic community is out-of-date model.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 Management

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

    I worked at Phoenix House full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The clients truly are there to better themselves, especially given their past histories.

    Cons

    Management does not back clinical staff, nor does it abide by what their promotional materials say that are distributed to potential clients and their family members.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more on what your original purpose was when founding the company. Treat clients as something more than just a paysource and help them receive the treatment they have sought out.
