    I have been working at Acadia Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Acadia Healthcare is a growing company and as a result there are many opportunities to move into a new role or develop a needed role to align with business strategy and need.

    Cons

    Because of the growing nature of the business you can easily feel overwhelmed if you are not an organized individual or one who pushes themselves to be super productive during work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate often with your team to gain insight on what they enjoy and are naturally talented at. Use that information to guide them into new roles & responsibilities to help them achieve success.

    Pros

    Most of my co workers were really great and made going to work bearable.

    Cons

    Everything else. Not very flexible working hours. Zero understanding of people with families. Upper management that only cares about numbers and bottom lines and treated every employee like a number. Knee-jerk reaction "trainings" every other day to implement a change in policy or cover their butts.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like humans. Get a structured curriculum for employees and the needless and wasted time on "trainings" can be used on actually working.

    I have been working at Acadia Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    - Great people to work with
    - Competitive pay
    - Awesome mission
    - Fun perks

    Cons

    - Not enough PTO
    - No flexible hours
    - Fast paced environment is causing us employees stress and anxiety. Isn't that what we are treating?

    Advice to Management

    Heres the deal, so many people I know jobs allow their employees to leave on Fridays at 1pm because they know there needs to be a work/life balance. Also, if I come in at 7am can I leave at 4pm? I just think that there needs to be more flexibility in this company. We all work so hard.

    I have been working at Acadia Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Paid time off, health insurance is awesome & I love my boss. Everyone working hard and being positive! Supervisor is available and reachable. Very profession.

    Cons

    I'm sure there must be something but so far so good for my experience. I work on site at a facility and I'm usually alone, 3rd shift. I like the peace and quiet.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries for licensed staff.

    There are really great people working at Acadia, who truly care about the client.
    Growing organization, which provides opportunities to those looking for growth.

    There is too much turnover. Why?
    Health benefits and 401k are poor

    Dig in to why people are leaving and do something about it.

    I have been working at Acadia Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working with the clients - and that I rarely, if ever see or hear from my supervisor or anyone in management.

    Cons

    They have us over a barrel as there are very few jobs in our rural area. There is a shortage of licensed clinicians so programs are closing or staff is hired who should not have been even given an interview. Communication is non existent or hostile, depending on the day and the mood of our CEO. One survives best by laying low and not speaking up - a coworker asked about an error on her paycheck was was called out about it. Good supervisors keep leaving and it is clear that they are overworked, underpaid and not supported at all by management. Having one person cover 20 programs that are spread out so far geographically is just wrong. Before the recent changes, people wanted to work here and would have done anything for our former supervisor - she left when the BS got too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in an EMR and you would reduce your paybacks substantially as well as help support the teams in being timely and accurate with their documentation. Time should be spent working with clients, not on hand typing out documentation.

    I have been working at Acadia Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work hours and the relationships made within our teams. The positive support of our direct managers.

    Cons

    Need more company activity that show employee appreciation and worth to the company. Making it a joy not a burden to spend so much time dedicated to our days.

    Advice to Management

    Increased turn over in some field locations make it difficult to provide consistent training and support. Need to review compensation and benefits offered for all positions in order to be competitive in our market. You get what you pay for! Service begins at the front lines and if employees do not feel valued they do not provide good customer service to patients.

    Acadia is a growing, busy company that offers opportunities for those who work hard.

    Cons

    No 401(k) match, insurance is expensive

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
