    I have been working at AltaPointe Health Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learning about different mental illnesses
    Meeting consumers
    Making a difference in their lives

    Cons

    Pay is not the greatest for behavioral aides (they're the ones who know the consumers best)
    Paperwork can be overwhelming for day shift
    Can be frustrating dealing with a difficult consumer(s)
    Depending on who management is, you may or may not deal with one who barely helps out when shorthanded or isn't much help when you present an issue regarding consumers or self

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with consumers

    I worked at AltaPointe Health Systems full-time

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility and opportunity to work more for additional income
    Decent (but not great) pay and benefits-state retirement

    Cons

    NO loyalty to employees
    Lack of communication of new policies, company changes, etc... to employees Secretive management style
    Expecting employees to "figure out" how to implement new company policies or required patient treatments vs educating employees/informing them of changes before actually implemented.
    Important treatment decisions, policies, impacting staff and patients etc. made without input of those workers who will be providing patient care. Administrative focus is on the amount of money they can make not provision of quality patient care and fair treatment of employees
    Employees who voice treatment or policy concerns in constructive manner are labeled as a problem and treated accordingly
    Poor quality and maintenance of work building settings

    Advice to Management

    Learn effective, humane management skills and PRACTICE them at work! Of course this assumes top management practices and promotes this....
    Treat employees fairly and reward loyalty and good patient satisfaction scores vs focusing exclusively on productivity and how well one "Keeps quiet" about work concerns/issues that impact patient satisfaction.
    Spend less money on MD/PA/NP recruitment and orientation; and improve overall treatment of existing staff to decrease turnover and improve satisfaction/health of same employees.

    Pros

    My coworkers and supervisors were really nice and helpful. I also became pretty attached to some of the clients as well.

    Cons

    The pay is awful. They pay $12 an hour for someone who has a four year degree? Are you kidding me? And for mileage you only got 40 cents a mile when the Alabama average is 50 cents a mile.

    Advice to Management

    You have people with advance degrees serving an at risk population, pay them what they deserve.
