    Pros

    I worked at Progressus for over a year before moving onto another opportunity. Fair benefits package and compensation program. Good team environment. Recruitment staff works well together and cross functionally with other departments. CEO cares about the people and truly believes in what Progressus offers and stands for as an organization. Easy to get along with and very energetic. HR staff cares about the therapists. You can self manage your every day work activity. Not micro-managed. Quiet office to get work done it, sometimes almost too quiet. Company seems to be continuing to grow well, year over year. Relatively normal office hours. Great views of the Bay from the office space!

    Cons

    Base salary for recruiters could be better. Institution of a quarter employee review would be nice to gauge effectiveness level of employees and to determine if base salary raises would be warranted. Self motivation and drive is def a required quality. Certain times of the year can be quite slow, but a good employee will find a way to continue to be productive and engaged. To quiet sometimes in the office, but that could be seen as a Pro as well.

    Advice to Management

    Bi Annual (at least) performance reviews to determine if raise necessary. Start base salary a bit hirer for a quality hire. Continue to look into ways/strategies to build a stronger cross functional department. Tensions/communication between departments can sometimes deteriorate/become strained (especially when work loads are priorities are high). Goals sometimes for recruiting and other departments can be lofty that is expected by parent company.

    Pros

    Easy to support and back the overall goal of the company (providing therapists to young students in schools)

    Cons

    The company is very poorly managed and lacks any bit of a positive culture. The CEO is reactive, egotistical, and rude. It is clear that her discourteous behavior is instilled in most of the senior leadership team, making the working environment in the corporate office very hostile. The company also lacks any structure or policies, rather deciding what policies they choose to put in place and how to treat employees on a case by case basis, usually determined by whether or not you are "friends" with the management team. There is definitely an inner "clique" that calls the shots in the office, and can do no wrong in the eyes of the CEO. I do believe that the company tries to provide the best qualified therapists to the schools, though at the end of the day, it all comes back to how much profit they can make (which I guess is to be expected with most companies). The turnover in the corporate office is also very high. I was shocked by this number, though understood why after having worked there.

    Advice to Management

    -Put policies in place to better support the staff and reduce turnover
    -Allow all employees opportunities for flexible work schedules, not just those on the CEO's "favorite employees list"

    Pros

    Progressus has a great office filled with incredibly thoughtful people. Everyone was extremely nice and welcoming. They are more than willing to be flexible with your schedule and really believe in a work-life balance. Janet, the CEO is very fast paced, but overly involved. She's not too big for any problem and is more than willing to help in any way she is able.

    Cons

    The only con, I encountered, was salary. The commission structure is that of a corporate recruiter, paid in small bonuses, but the base salary doesn't match that type of plan. I do believe they're in the process of changing this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture the way it is, don't go overly corporate on it. Work on fixing the commission structure and/or raise the base salary, to cultivate an environment of success.

    Pros

    They accomodated my placement preferences and provided management support always when needed. They have many online educational libraries for professional growth. They were fair in offering increase in pay depending on experience.

    Cons

    Can be hard to collaborate with others in the same position since it's a large company and employees are spread out nationwide.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with management was always great. They were always available.

    Pros

    The only way to get an OT job through SFUSD. They reimburse up to $500 in therapy supplies (but that's only because SFUSD doesn't give you anything).

    Cons

    NO PTO, sick days or holidays paid! As the hiring therapy company they are not at all involved in your work, growth, development, or training. HR is unexperienced. We all had to redo our W2s because of an HR error and they were not happy to reimburse the notary fee. They promise free trainings and courses, but make exuses when you ask about what's available. Sent me conflicting information regarding my benefits at the end of my contract. My insurance lapsed because they ended it too soon and they did not reimburse what they took out of my paycheck for insurance I no longer had.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Have more oversight into what is going on with your employees. Have more support and better training for your employees. Get your HR together!

    Pros

    Competitive per hour rate, good benefits package, good support from corporate office, lucky with my school placement and caseload (not always the case), health insurance in the summer, pays for ASHA dues and CEUs if full-time

    Cons

    No sick days, no paid holidays until 2nd year, no pay over summer break, very little or no opportunity for work in the summer, school placements can be difficult, no gas money if traveling between schools, may need to split time between several schools, no pay when schools are closed

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more opportunities in district schools as opposed to charter schools. Being salaried would be even better than paid by the hour.

    Pros

    For self-directed, highly motivated, organized and enthusiastic individuals, Progressus is a great place to gain work experience in the helping fields. The company does want to know what is happening in the field, because supervisors are not directly on-site most often--therefore the submission of stories and work examples to be pooled for prizes exist here. This is a good company to work for if you are a go-getter and comfortable with self-reliance and independence.

    Cons

    One of the most distressing factors regarding Progressus is the lack of communication and honesty between management and staff. There is a constant cloak-and-dagger feel, which means that often, very dedicated and great employees slip through. There is little sense of stability, and the most dangerous part of working for Progressus in a school-based occupation is that there are no guarantees that you will have a job past the current year. I was praised and even won an award for my performance in the field, was told that I would have a job the next school year and then, very abruptly, was told that contracts were not being renewed. Progressus waited so long to make a decision and communicate clearly about their contracts with the local schools that I lost employment opportunities for the following year--after all, interviews for one school year are held before the last one ends! Several other professionals were treated the same way.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to invest more in your people, especially those who are good, honest, compassionate, dedicated, motivated, and loyal. Be more honest about whether a person is going to have a job or not. Rather than firing and hiring constantly, consider taking professionals more seriously and as if their livelihood matters.

    Pros

    My fellow therapists were always supportive. Direct management did the best they could.The pay rate would have been nice had I ever received an accurate paycheck.

    Cons

    From my first day things were disorganized. There were issues with technology required to complete my notes, lack of reimbursement for equipment, multiplying caseloads and multiple errors in my paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    You need to work on management skills, communication and organization. Contact employees directly with questions instead of making assumptions.
