Messy Management

Drug and Alcohol Counselor (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD

I worked at Gaudenzia full-time for less than a year

ProsDecent Training program if had the appropriate professionals to teach. Decent Benefits.

ConsManagement had drama. Words and actions contradictory. Worked in correctional instituations. Trainings would be canceled and you wouldn't be notified after traveling to location. Unprofessional atmosphere. Condecending management. Not very helpful or supportive to train new hires at the job position.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't allow personal relationships to supercede professional. Clean house with managers who care about their employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Counselor I

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

I worked at Gaudenzia full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou get annual and promotional raises, worked with good counselors, gain a lot of experience with SA/MH, adolescents, groups, criminal justice system. This job makes you very marketable

Constoo much paper work, unrealistic expectations of getting paperwork done, not enough time to complete paper work, no security, very unorganized, very fast pace, lack of communication

Advice to Senior Managementbe more organized, allow new employees to have thorough training before dealing with clients.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

This is a female dominated company that does not like for guys that's not their friend to get promoted.

Human Resource Specialist (Former Employee)
Norristown, PA

I worked at Gaudenzia full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPlenty of training that can help if you want to be a clinician and they employ ex-felons.

ConsNo men without any friends in the company will ever go anywhere. The company is about 85% women that are friends.

Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure the way that hiring, promotions and grievances are done. Do not leave it up to the HR. Dept. That's where the problem starts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Ability to help others with addiction

Counselor (Current Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

I have been working at Gaudenzia full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDecent benefits, non-profit company, free meals, overtime available

ConsPoor management, low pay, bad schedules, let bad people stay and collect pay checks and let good people leave, not enough time to complete paperwork....a lot is asked of employees.....burnout is common

Advice to Senior ManagementActually go into the programs from time to time. Fix maintenance issues instead of ignoring problems for years. Empower employees to do their jobs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
