    I worked at DACCO full-time

    Pros

    You'll see some great stories of hope and redemption here. There is a life after drug and alcohol abuse and DACCO does help people pick themselves up by the bootstraps to live lives again and be well.

    Cons

    If you are a hard worker they will work you to the bone because that's what they do here. It's just expected to do what they say or else because they think everyone can be replaced so get a place in line if you want to complain because it don't matter. Just do what people say and don't speak up or say one word about it. So yes it's not like I liked coming to work.

    Advice to Management

    We thought things might be changed but it doesn't look like that the case so I left. If people learned how to show basic respect and peace ability to others then this workplace would be much better.

    I have been working at DACCO full-time

    Pros

    I love this company. The decision to write a review was a very difficult one for me to come to terms with. My heart is heavy so please understand this company is close to the hearts of many people.

    Cons

    There are so many things to be said but many of them are not appropriate for an online review. What I can say is that employees have completely lost trust in their leadership. Although there are a few managers and directors that staff appreciate, for the most part any leadership member at DACCO is not liked. I wish I could explain that people are being unreasonable but they aren't. Imagine being in trouble for your attire yet seeing a Vice President wearing a mini skirt. Imagine being in trouble for being "dishonest" yet seeing many dishonest things from another VP. Walk past the CFO and don't even get a hello. There are many contradictions at this place of employment. The pay is incredibly low but that's not the major problem. The major problem is that people do not trust the supervisors, managers and other leaders who lead them. Either that or they realize their supervisors are at the mercy of the "third floor" decisions and no regard is taken into consideration for employee wellfare. Something has to give. 3-0.

    Advice to Management

    Seek help from an outside source.

    I have been working at DACCO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice environment, wonderful job satisfaction in helping people to recover, decent benefits, best treatment facility in our area with excellent results. There is upward mobility, and that's good.

    Cons

    We deal primarily with indigent people so their resources are not great but helping them is rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent thank you to staff like the free hamburger hot dog cook out to celebrate summer and the Christmas Party.

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

    Pros

    I have been working at DACCO for 7 years and find it a great work environment. The people are the best I have ever worked with in my long career in healthcare. Benefits are competitive with those provided by major employers (I worked for HCA for 17 years prior to DACCO, and Moffitt before that and find benefits as good). Casual Fridays are great!

    Cons

    Working in the non profit world has it's challenges, due to constant Federal and State funding cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more, perhaps, as with any industry.

    Pros

    The clients are why we are here because they need our help and you can change a life. We work at a place where we have that opportunity to help people. That's why I stay.

    Cons

    All of us are unsure what to do. I really love my job but we have reached our limit, so several of us are going to be posting reviews. Our main concerns are very low pay, no respect, and people who are not truthful. We want change so we can help the clients but management won't listen to us. It's a very unstable workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Big things need to change because your employees are tired of how things run here at DACCO. We will walk out if things don't change 3-1 groupie out.

    Pros

    I love my team. People who work here have amazing passion to help patients.

    Cons

    Employees have reached a breaking point and are about to walk out. They are tired of the lack of honesty, the unfair expectations, the poor leaders. If I speak up I know I'll be out with the trash so I'll join them in this cause.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to step in and reorganize this place starting at the top before there's a mass walk-out.

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

    Pros

    If you are working in human services because you have a genuine desire to help people get their lives back then this is a great place to work. There are some of the most kind and compassionate people who work here and really want to help make a difference in the clients lives. Vacation and retirement packages are decent and there are opportunities to learn a lot through the different trainings that are offered.

    Cons

    Constant changes that happen within the company that are never discussed with the staff that are being effected by them. Lack of proper training and resources to effectively do your job. Poor communication between departments which leads to confusion and chaos which is noticeable to the clients. The company says that they want to help one client at a time and claim to stand behind their mission statement but when it comes down to it they serve the almighty dollar. They make allowances for clients who have money but the ones who really want the help but don't have the funds have to jump through hoops to get it. It's unfortunate because for the prices they expect for these clients to come up with are unrealistic and most walk away feeling they should just continue using because it will probably cost them less. It's sad because what a lot of the leaders forget or dont even think about is thayvwe are dealing with human beings. Living, breathing people who have kids and husbands and wives and the reality is that they might walk out our doors and die. All because they couldn't come up with enouyyygh money to get the help they need y know thayt there is enough funding to go around. People need to remember why they decided to work in this field or find some other line of work that doesn't have such severe consequences for poor leadership and basis lack of concern for human lives, drug addict or not.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. They're the ones doing all of the work on the front lines and will know best where changes are necessary. Take care of the staff who are loyal to the company and show up and do their jobs and they will continue to stay loyal. Stop thinking of clients as dollar signs and start treating them like human beings who are coming to us in desperation and getting turned away because they can't afford the help. Not many drug addicts have a savings account set aside for the treatment they are going to need if they decide they want help. Take better care of your staff and it will have a snowball effect in the way they care for the clients and the way they preform their jobs.
