    Pros

    Good benefits, no mobility for growth or entrance into a different department for designated experience and higher salary.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Eluding to tap into the front-line relationship between the employee and the clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    integrating cohesion amongst the work force instead of dissension can counter the high turn-over and establish a unified long-term vision.

    Pros

    Free parking if you get there early.

    Cons

    Rapid turnover in staffing. Within six months 8 of 12 counselors positions changed, 6 due to staff quitting and two terminations. Supervisor talks about staff members to other staff members creating a hostile environment. Those staff that fall for this ruse that they are somehow special then become informants for anything said by fellow employees. Too much time working uncompensated due to being on a salary. Some staff have 1.5x as much work as other staff. Director has lost all humility and has focus on the company bottom line as it is a for profit agency. The position has gone completely to her head. Upper management paid for an anonymous survey but completed ignored the results. His personal way of reaching out to staff was to ask in staff meeting, in front of Director and supervisor, how each of us were doing. Not a tactic that supports open dialogue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine staff turnover. Attempt to complete exit interviews. Supervise your clinical supervisors and site Directors. Care more about the program then how it is doing financially.

    I worked at Pyramid Healthcare as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary was good and flexible with time off

    Cons

    Some departments managers are better than others, however all of them really don't care about being fair. Management constantly changes their policy or procedures in ways THEY want it done. Upper management will not bother to resolve any problems in a department and close their eyes to supervisors who are unrealistic in productivity. Upper management also ignore how a supervisor treats or speaks to their employees. They close their eyes to patterns of people always quitting in a department too. Basically, they let you go for what they believe a supervisor tells them, not speaking to the person they are letting go. Very unfair to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't always feel you have to listen to what a supervisor tells you. Anyone can make anyone look incompetent if they want to. Anyone is capable of lying....including supervisors.

    Pros

    The clients who are trying to get clean and sober

    Cons

    Poor individualized treatment, lack of insight into therapeutic modalities. One size fits all mentality in regards to client. Too much emphasis on group settings. They will have 30+ clients in one group and expect treatment to occur and appear sincerely shocked at the high relapse rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on client needs.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great to work with and everyone tries to help each other out. Everyone works hard to provide the best quality of care to clients. The programs offered are great.

    Cons

    High turnover rates and continual changes to program formats and times make it difficult to stay positive. It also disrupts treatment for many clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not only ask the staff what ideas they have, but make them feel heard and try to balance for profit with the services that are offered.

    Pros

    good health insurance at good cost

    Cons

    lack of empoyee bonding or morale due to clinical supervisor repeating what is said in private to fellow employees, the director in house is either clueless or right out lying on many occaisions. Main director not concerned with employee work load, stress, or morale as long the company is making profit. Salary is set at 40 hour work week which is diminished when the work week is consistenly 45-50 hours in order to remain in compliance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more reasonable about is expected. the work can be done or it can be good, but at the average caseload it cannot be both.

    Pros

    It feels good to make a difference in peoples' lives. Most staff are there for the right reasons. Health insurance (medical, dental, and vision) is available for full-time staff at reasonable rates.

    Cons

    All departments that work the closest to the clients (techs, counselors, nurses, housekeeping, etc.) are understaffed and overworked. Most departments are underpaid. The last two years we went without raises, although we were given a Christmas bonus this year. Employee satisfaction surveys clearly show low morale year after year - so much so that they have to provide incentives for employees to simply complete the survey in the first place. Accountability is poor; expect to do more work because an employee refuses to do parts of his/her job without fear of repercussion. Also expect administrative staff to make changes that greatly affect how you do your job without involving you in the decision-making process. Then expect those same administrative staff to wonder why employees feel their opinions don't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Low morale is crippling your company. How much money has been lost to turnover? When employees are this miserable, it's time to take a close look at management.
