Advice to Management

Company needs to be more organized, Management has no idea whats going on and makes decisions and doesn't tell the parents or the staff working. Better pay is definitely needed.

    Pros

    The clients definitely need qualified professionals to meet their goals and building a professional relationship is worth following through to see progress.

    Cons

    Salary is not comeasurate for qualified professionals and training is handed by word of mouth with little mentoring. Some people can teach and some can do; This organization needs better instructors.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate better staff training with qualified in house instructors and mentoring for new employees; Offer competitive hourly salaries for qualified professionals and train on how to write a 30 page detailed reports in 2 hours by non clerk typists (including paid time for all rewrites due to company changes or missing data that was never provided). This practice exploits your qualified staff by not paying for all hours they put into the work and this abuse explains why you have high turnover. There is a point where dedication becomes abusive from a human resource employer no matter how dedicated the person is to the population served.

    Pros

    Residents are what keeps you going....if you love what you do.

    Cons

    Management is insane at all levels. Bad ethics. Game playing. Clicks. Theres an inner circle and an outer circle. This is not all sites in Western Pa...I can only speak for what I experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and practice what NHS values are suppose to be. Take a good look at yourselves. Unethical behavior is shameful.
