Pros

They will give anyone a job, even with little or no experience.

Cons

Pretty much everything. Management is constantly changing, high employee turnover, unrealistic expectations. Management is very threatening in nature; definitely not coaching or supportive management. Corporate office is also very inept and will not take responsibility for their mistakes. Pay and vacation and benefits in general are poor!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees well and they will stick with you. Your clients are unhappy because they end up with 2-4 different therapists because they keep quitting due to abusive work situations.

    Attitude towards work life balance and time off are very generous.
    Coworkers are honest, dedicated, and fun to work with.

    Management is disorganized and engages in infighting.
    Due to management infighting, employees have difficulty working across departments.
    Leadership does not send clear messages to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider reorganizing mid-level management or providing less ambiguous directives that improve inter-group unity.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here would be to gain experience and hours toward licensure. It is also a good job if you enjoy flexibility in your weekly schedule.

    Cons

    Downsides include poor salaries, uncertain future of company, revolving door of coworkers and very disgruntled clients quite often. If management would be more involved with the success and happiness of their case managers they would experience a lot more success in the future. Case managers have a quota per se of client hours to achieve on a weekly basis and sometimes/often that can require a lot of jockeying around - working weekends, etc.....the paperwork that follows this effort is enormous and hardly worth the salaries given!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what the problems are in the smaller rural offices - more training and support is desperately needed!
