Positive Outlook

I worked at Preferred Family Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

They pay well, benefits are moderate to good. The agency recieves funds from a tax to citizens, therefore some of the expectations that state and federally funded agencies have are not as stringent. They are expanding rapidly with this tax money, and have an airplane and other perks for upper managment.

Cons

I knew of several coworkers who had been fired and then offered another position in the agency. The staff who reported to these folks were told of the upcoming firing before the person to be let go. I observed personnel being managed by scarcasm, slamming doors, raised voices and throwing things.

Advice to Management

Consider ways to be more professional and employee friendly. Consider training and support as a way of retaining staff. There may be healthier ways for managers and vice presidents to manage stress, so perhaps some stress managment training for upper middle managment.

  1. "A high-paced, under-supportive treatment facility that resembles too closely the population served"

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Preferred Family Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Upward mobility due to limited length of employment of many of the staff and the high level of burnout.

    Cons

    High stress and demand, limited support or structure, limited time for development of team, too focused on the business end of treatment.

    Advice to Management

    Work to change the climate away from the "billable hour" and toward caring for clients' and clinicians' health and well-being. Do not allow, much less demand, staff (salaried or hourly) to work more than 40-45 hours per week, even if "production" drops in the short-term.


  2. "Great place to work, unfortunately intrinsic rewards do not buy much."

    Pros

    Larger company with opportunities to move within the state. Good management structure. Work load is manageable if efficient. Relatively flexible schedule as long as work is completed in a timely fashion.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively poor, however, my location is a cheap place to live. Performance based on quarterly quotas. Hard to list much given short time spent at the job.

    Advice to Management

    You would increase retention and revenue with a raise.
