    I have been working at Pyramid Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Great place for quick advancement and positive work environment!

    Cons

    Disappointed with their projected budgets for certain positions and lack of benefit accrual if working 12 months a year!

    Advice to Management

    Increase your budgets for positions and add more vacation days! Also, for Masters level positions, should not make bachelor's level salary!

    I have been working at Pyramid Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Helping others during their recovery from addiction. Providing necessary tools for their continued recovery in a manner that is specifically for them.

    Cons

    Many employees call off, then the reliable employees that come in when scheduled are seemingly punished for the wrong of others that are not reprimanded by being automatically scheduled double shifts...16 hours...for straight time not over time. Minimal staff present during shifts. Often short staffed. Not exhausting work but exhausting work conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a shift differential for working second shift so that employees are not calling off but will value coming into work for the additional money per hour. Also rotate weekends and shifts throughout full time staff and utilize part time staff for weekends and to fill gaps unless they are willing to pay overtime to full time.

    The clients are great to work with as are co-workers. Help people deal with mental health and addiction issues.

    Two weeks unpaid vacation, no sick time, no personal days, no holidays. Must meet weekly billable hours to get medical benefits, if don't meet insurance gets dropped.

    I worked at Pyramid Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most management employees get a car with all expenses paid and a corporate card for expenses.

    Cons

    As a behavioral tech we don't get any of those perks. We get minimal raises (if any) and no overtime. I heard from several employees about someone in marketing bragging about all the golf he gets to play with his job and that he is not accountable for any reports or where he is on a daily basis. I was also told that most of our facilities are fed by the IOP's we own. As behavioral techs we are on the front line and its not easy work. Someone needs to wake up and compensate those of us who are trying to do the right thing for our patients.

    Advice to Management

    More recognition needs to be made for those of us who are working and taking care of patients in treatment.

    Pros

    It was a pleasure working with individuals who were seeking to improve the quality of their lives by living without the use of drugs or alcohol. The company held to behavioral and ethical values that employees incorporated in the everyday challenge that exist between client and employee relationships. I learned a lot about myself, gaining personal growth thru helping these individuals to help themselves.

    Cons

    The CEO puts decision-making in the control of respective directors' of their facilities without the foresight to review upper-level managers and their judgements to their determination in their procedures of said say over facts. Poor employee and management relationships.

    Advice to Management

    When considering all imported information to review, it is more wisely to reflect with life experience on the said and unsaid information rather then the words of an employee who may be or may not be ethically correct in their decision making.

    I worked at Pyramid Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
