    I have been working at The Emily Program full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great work culture and like-minded co-workers.

    Cons

    Changes in growth and leadership have consistently had some negative effects on morale and culture of workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starbucks fell hard from over-expanding to meet projected growth. Do not make the same mistake, focus on strengthening what locations you have before expanding any further.

    I worked at The Emily Program full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, able to speak up and share frustrations, flexible work schedule, decent amount of PTO, making a difference in the client'a lives.

    Cons

    Staff are overworked and frazzled constantly, morale is very low, administration makes decisions without thinking how it will affect the team who makes up this company. Little understanding by management regarding day to day functions and challenges. Burn out their employees to the point they WANT to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together. You are not the most incredible company because of the way you treat your staff. Stop overworking employees and stop spending money on senseless things, like hiring decorators to check in on your office and focus on staffing your offices so staff stop feeling overworked.

    I worked at The Emily Program

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the clients and the clinical work. The furniture was nice.

    Cons

    Management was erratic and sometimes punitive. All difficulties within the company were blamed on the staff (often and in long meetings). Decisions were based on finances (although they did not seem to help) not on clinical importance. Morale was low and no one felt secure. Everyone wondered who else they could trust. The expressed culture was positive but it was not acted on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect your employees. If you hire good qualified people- treat them that way. If employees have opinions on things- take that into consideration. Stop asking for opinions if you are going to punish people for expressing them. Stop blaming them for everything and driving them away. The turnover is much too high to provide good clinical care.

    I worked at The Emily Program (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved working with the clients, and I had great co-workers. I enjoyed working with others who had so much passion for what they do.

    Cons

    Low pay, terrible scheduling, management decisions are very erratic and they don't seem to know what they are doing, staff are treated poorly, poor work-life balance, staff get burned out due to poor leadership decisions, very little opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending money on expensive decorating and lavish parties. Treat employees better. You are sacrificing client care when you put so much pressure on your staff.

    I worked at The Emily Program part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to impact the lives of those struggling with eating disorders.

    Cons

    Forced to "disorder" your own eating to model "normal" eating. Constant schedule changes, constantly short staffed. Management treated grown professionals with 10+ yrs of experience like 16 year old kids in a fast food restaurant. Constant meetings. Benefits for full time staff outrageously priced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your experienced staff with some respect. Be respectful of people's schedules and lives outside of work. There is more to life than work!
