    Very supportive staff who work really hard to help the clients.

    Cons

    The pay doesn't match the work that you will have to do for the "members"

    Pros

    PC has been a good company to work for.

    Cons

    The way they have handled to closing of their clinics in San Bernardino has been very hard on the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that loyal employees that have worked for the company more than 10 years have a place to go when resizing.

    Pros

    A few good people. Some good professional experience.

    Cons

    Do not value employees. Right sizing the company means getting rid of many dedicated employees without transferring them to other positions.

    Advice to Management

    None of them will listen anyway

    Pros

    Work week hours, occasional friendly staff

    Cons

    Billable hours, lack of corprate involvement at site, lack of corprate support at site, under paid, lack of position advancement, lack of communication

    Advice to Management

    Less billable hours for LPT/LVN, more competitive pay, better Medicare options, more opportunities for job advancement, less time for pay raises.

    Pros

    There is only one individual in the HR department that was actually nice and had some sense.

    Cons

    This company is a joke! They treat the employees like slaves, and they pay slave wages. They also treat the consumers like slaves. The management is horrible they do not have any management skills whatsoever and they all walk around with this power trip. Oh and not to mention all the miss billing they do for their clients. This place sells you a good story when you apply but once you are there it is all a front. There is not sense of leadership nor do they care about their employees. You have to wonder why the employee turn around rate is so high They lack morale, ethics, leadership, organization, respect, and knowledge! You can get away with pretty much anything if you know someone on the inside. They run their staff to the gutter, stress them out and that's why they all leave on stress or quit.

    Advice to Management

    Learn effective leadership skills, management skills, people skills, ethics, morale, collaboration, professionalism, respect, compassion, and empathy, and equal opportunity.

    Pros

    Looks great on a resume if you've been able to master DMH paperwork.

    Cons

    Too little supervision. Too much ego. Too many people who are overworked and underpaid. Billing standards and expectations are unattainable. Other than getting licensed and getting a marginal pay increase, there really is no room for growth.

    Monday through Friday. Team oriented and goal minded organization. Great place to start if one is in need of experience!

    Non-Profit, so of course the pay is not wonderful.

    Advice to Management

    None. I enjoy working with management, Open-door policy and great communication.

    Pros

    Great experience applied with diverse population.

    Cons

    The company is simply a "med-cal" billing factory! They overworked you beyond your ability to perform your job efficiently, leafing to high rotation of employees, from case managers to therapist. The company gets frequent state audits which ends of many employees and managers been fired or "removed" due to not producing . You will have to meet your numbers within a couple months of being hired. Benefits are competitive, but they keep changing without respecting your contract. If you interested in this company keep in mind is just for the experience and make an exit plan! The only ones who have a great salary are the Managers and CEO / Board ! stress level is VERY hight! Talk to some of the employees when you get your interview., or you could be a client there pretty soon!!!

    Pros

    Decent salary for MFT intern/ASW and benefits are good.

    Cons

    If you are looking to build clinical skills do not work at Pacific Clinics. As most reviews indicate, productivity is of paramount importance and the development of clinicians is last priority. Clinicians are over worked and spend so much time on DMH paperwork that very little time is spent on the actual treatment. You are expected to have 30-32 clients and this is not possible given that some client's require a lot of attention. Any agency that contracts with DMH has this type or similar work load, I've worked for other DMH contracted agencies, however, Pacific Clinics by far is the worst. I do not believe Pacific Clinics is vested in advancing behavioral healthcare, as their motto states, instead I believe they are more concerned with advancing their bottom line. I am gravely disappointed in Pacific Clinics and the lack of support & development they provide to clinicians, it is a horrible place to work and this is evidenced by the extremely high turnover.
