    Awful place to work! Former RSP

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome coworkers were supportive. Genuine sense of accomplishment after helping client succeed with treatment plan goal.

    ConsWorking as an RSP was by far the worst experience of my life. Management was unsupportive and would almost always take the side of the client complaining over myself. This job was a joke from a clinical point of view. All management cares about is whether or not you meet service hours. I was denied overtime on several occasions and forced to eat hours to make productivity. I was publicly called out for errors in front of other staff members on multiple occasions. Expect micromanagement in all the wrong ways.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a closer look at some of your office management. Office morale was horrible among RSPs at my office!

    Clinical

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCo-workers and middle managers , clinical staff , therapist and psychiatrist are exceptional . They go way beyond the call of duty. They are the mortar that keeps this place still standing.

    ConsUnfortunately , it's corporate management with the pathology . As it's this corporate "greed " that took the vision of our great Governor and tarnished his name; brand and image.
    Corporate has turned their backs on those that built this institution. Their clients are looked at as just billable units. And nothing more.
    The paradigm shift has started ...employees leaving in herds. As they are the ones with the ethics and can take it no more.
    This is not a good place to work. It's not about the money , nor advancement. It's about business ethics ...: it doesn't exist here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company should RE-tool from the top down. The dinosaurs must go...I don't believe that they have heard that their management style is extinct.
    Otis was a good man. It's a shame how management has prostituted his name in the name of "profits".... Or what the non -profits call surplus.
    Ask them what happens to this Indiana taxpayers money ... ;"The Surplus"

    Just Awful

    RSP (Former Employee)
    Albion, IN

    ProsNone besides it (sort of) paid my bills for the time being.

    ConsTerrible management, long hours, and you are always being stretched past what you are being paid. No room for growth, no reason to feel motivated to work hard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your employees better. Care about your employees, not just the clients you serve. Why you lose so many people so quickly.

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

    DIversity for certain.

    Case Mgt (Current Employee)
    Fort Wayne, IN

    ProsSomewhat autonomous position, however gov't intervention is decreasing autonomy and making maximizing billing penultimate priority.

    ConsLow compensation; work hours do not match 40 hr. work week. Usually give away 6 - 7 hours a week in free work due to restrictions on billing vs. hours of hourly pay allowed per week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not over react when you have a glut of clients who haven't yet received due to receiving many request for services at same time for many clients. You tend to over hire, then perhaps 20% of clients do not work out, leaving you with staff fighting for remaining clients and administration having to make perhaps some unrealistic requests from staff to cover services for remaining 'valid clients'.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good way to start out

    RSP (Current Employee)
    Albion, IN

    ProsWorking with people who really need help

    Very flexible hours

    They can decide to give bounces

    ConsA productivity system that rewards quantity over quality.
    Being forced to lie about working over due to productivity requirements but lack of clients
    Paperwork is more important than actual care.
    NO PAY INCREASE
    The office is such that only the people who are terrible, lazy, or wanting to become management only stay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay behind your people, and trust them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
