    I worked at Achieva full-time

    Pros

    Loved the individuals I worked with
    The reason we do this job

    Cons

    Specialist, director, executive management are not professional
    None of them are focused on the individuals
    They are having affairs at work, playing on the Internet, etc
    specialists at timed never even met individuals
    Staff is allowed misconduct as long as they are willing to work over time

    Advice to Management

    Your logo is keeping people first
    I think you have forgotten that
    Stop playing games and get back to the business and passion this business was originally founded on
    If it is not your passion then get another job

    Pros

    Offices parties, Christmas parties, bonuses, technology

    Cons

    No training, you're just thrown into it and it's incredibly difficult for the first few months until you grasp it's all. Bosses aren't helpful. Unorganized. Raises are very minimal. Work from upper levels are always laid onto tellers and there's nothing you can do about it.

    Advice to Management

    Do your own work. Help the new ones learn. Be helpful instead of critical and intimidating. I only gave it two stars because the company itself is great, but working for the actual branches are overwhelming.

    The clients are wonderful people and I miss working with them.

    Some house supervisors are a lot too controlling

    Employees need respected by the management staff and the staff concerns should be followed up on.

    I worked at Achieva (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with clients that I supported . you get attached very easy

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism. They treat the hard working staff like crap and treat the OK staff better its not right everyone should be treated equally

    Advice to Management

    Treat the good staff that you do have right and maybe you can keep staff around much longer.

    Pros

    Like working in the social services industry this is a great company to do it with. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Non-profit organization that receives contracts from the state for some programs and each year is uncertain if your program will be funded. All due to the state's Budget.

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

    Pros

    Comp time if you can ever take it. No one pays attention to how much you call off as long as you fill your shifts. 2 sick hours earned a pay. Get minimal vac and personal time from the start.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what day to day is really like. If you can't cover a shift you work it regardless of you have already worked ridiculously long hours. You have to find a buddy to be responsible for your sites or you don't get to take your vacation/personal/comp time. Then oncall is either every 3 or 4 weeks depending on which region that you are in. When oncall you are responsible for 16 or 17 sites for either a week or weekend. Then, when you go over the magical amount of overtime that they allot, they will punish you. It doesn't matter if you work over 22.5 beyond your week at your sites for free, but don't do it at sites that the company would have to pay you for or it's a corrective action.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe stop just dumping all of the crap on the supervisors, try compensation for oncall beyond 50 achieva bucks that get you a $25 Giant Eagle gift card.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours; multiple sites to choose from; decent benefits.

    Cons

    Many of the supervisors aren't very competent; less than friendly management.

    Advice to Management

    Sharpen your interpersonal skills and be more fair to your employees who aren't supervisors or in management.
