    I have been working at Compass Health as a contractor

    Pros

    Kind staff. Compassionate goals.

    Cons

    Appears to be a machine for the making of money. Healthcare at a corporate level cannot possibly meet the needs of a very sick society.
    Caretaker burnout. Overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how you present yourselves to those with mental health issues. Most are i a state of fear and your presentation inhibits young people and teens from accepting care. You must meet a patient at their level and offer the safest intake and relationship building environment possible. Teens learn through the media and hero identification. Invest in the making of short films that engage their higher self to want change. incorporate gardens and message and water features that clear negative learned responses. Drugs are the last resort or should be used only temporarily . Healthcare does not put affirmations, nutrition and oxygen levels on the pedestal they should be on. Most of the patients need to unplug from technology and get back to basics, in nature, to build certainty, character and self-esteem. this should be part of your protocol.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Compass Health part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great time off accrual. Clients truly appreciate employees who help them, but also know who the slackers are. HR seems to want to help employees but are disconnected from field work.

    Cons

    Good employees with strong work ethic not appreciated. Too many coworkers are lazy and don't follow basic protocols. Management absent.

    Advice to Management

    HR. Spend time in the field so you understand what is going on.

    I have been working at Compass Health full-time

    Pros

    Able to get hours towards full licensure fairly quickly. Some management very helpful.

    Cons

    The pay is so low that it's difficult if not impossible to provide for yourself on just this income alone. Seems to be a disconnect between upper level management and various clinics. Difficult productivity standards that rely solely on your caseload, so if you do not have an appropriate caseload it will be difficult to achieve required results.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a reason to stay with CH long term. As it is right now there's no incentive for anyone to stay after they attain their state mandated supervision hours, and that only increases counselor turnover, which also reduces the level of care provided.

    Pros

    Several locations and positions available

    Cons

    Less-trained, "warm bodies hired off the street", hostile work environment, jealousy, personal problems brought to work inflicted on professional employees, feel ganged up on

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, deal with employees, make it a safe, professional environment, don't lie about the working conditions when you are aware there are problems among employees, hours should be correctly stated & not changed at the last minute, don't let employees gang up on professionally-oriented employees wanting to make a difference in people's lives

    I have been working at Compass Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the coworkers are nice and so are the residents

    Cons

    The upper management in the corporate office are sleeping with the employees. Someone else was right about the anonymous line not being anonymous, what a joke! They deserved to get sued. They promote people with poor work ethic, bad attitudes and no real experience, pay raises are few and far between. They turn a blind eye to illegal activity and harassment from administration

    Advice to Management

    Take some customer service training yourselves

    Pros

    The pay is good.Good Benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of people not trained properly to work with psych patients.Lots of bullying especially in administration. Lots of immaturity, unprofessionalism.Key people seem to allow bullying and participate themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up ,start showing professionalism and if the only way you can function is thru bullying maybe you should get out of your profession. Would not recommend this job to anybody..I worked in Opelousas may the other facilities are better. After I quit it took almost a year to replace me.

    Pros

    Not many. Good benefits if they'll give them to you. Stable industry. Healthcare isn't as affected by the economic downturn. Central Cali is a nice place to live.

    Cons

    Culture is lacking in integrity and morals. Upper management misrepresent company values. Very shady HR practices and poor communication throughout entire organization.

    Advice to Management

    Talk is cheap. Don't pretend to have high morals and values. Improve communication throughout all levels of company. Improve HR practices for all levels of company.

    Pros

    Lots of locations and programs to work for. Ok benefits. Some employees are for real doing a good job.

    Cons

    Mgmt. provides workplace bullies a safe haven. Impossible schedule for a sustained time working all 3 shifts every single week for weeks on end (graves, swing & day). Excellent work not expected, personal friends are hired, so they are protected no matter how much work they refuse to do.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to employees and invest in learning how to provide a harassment-free environment and don't expect new employees especially to deal with office harassment.
