    I worked at Achieva full-time

    Pros

    Working with such wonderful clients. Watching them learn.

    Cons

    The drama of the co workers.

    Advice to Management

    New management, company needs to check in from time to time. Shows way to much favoritism, some staff are like collage frat buddies, . Shows conflict of interest. unprofessional to say the least. manager has never taken the time to get to know all of the clients, Consintraints on one small group all day long. Manager is very impulsive in decision making with out regard for the clients health and safety. Not what the company is about.

    Positive Outlook

    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.

    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

    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.
