    I have been working at InVision Human Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only pro here is that the management mostly leaves you alone. You get to come and go as you please with the client the majority of the time.

    Cons

    Too many cons to list. Unqualified staff, poor training, management that just sneak around your back, clientele that will definitely injure you and rules that change to benefit the management not regular staff.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to give advice to management that have each other's back and think they know it all. Management needs to give support to the group homes, not look out for themselves only.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at InVision Human Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The CEO has a great attitude and outlook for the company. There are staff that really work hard to help you if needed.

    Cons

    The management tells you that no matter what happens with the clients, that you be consistent with your story between your peers. The reason for this is that the clients they have need way too much care and the real professionals say that they're in the wrong environment. This makes the residential counselors job extremely difficult and can have severe consequences both to the employee and the client.

    Advice to Management

    You should never take on clients that can be a danger to the community, staff and most of all to the client. It's not supposed to be about the money, it's supposed to be about the client.

    I worked at InVision Human Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Dedicated Supervisors, Clinicians, and DSP's. Some wonderful clients, who unfortunately--due to awful management and structure from the top which trickles down--will never have a chance to fully succeed in their placements. A wonderful and compassionate CEO who truly wanted this to be unique for those who do not fit the traditional CLA placements. The belief that every individual can be successful with the right placement....

    Cons

    On-call, lack of training for DSP's, Absolutely 0 work-life balance--this place, particularly as a Supervisor or Manager--will completely take over your life, no matter how hard you try to not let it. Crisis calls at 2 in the morning, 4 in the morning. Forget sleep when the going gets tough. Herd mentality in full effect here, and I do believe that anyone who is mentally healthy would not stay working here long term....

    Advice to Management

    The Management here is very dedicated to the mission, but completely blind to the regulatory and fiduciary realities of this field to the point where it ruins any work that is trying to be accomplished. Let's be honest, there are times where a specific individual simply is not suited for a particular placement. The issue is that Management here will try to fit a square peg in a round hole and keep the individual...

  4. "Seek employment elsewhere"

      Former Employee - Residential Counselor in Reading, PA
      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at InVision Human Services

      Pros

      One pro is that many of the positions are remotely managed/supervised. Clients are provided a home which is in some cases located up 2 hours away from the main office.

      Cons

      The training for residential counselors is insufficient, many staff are thrown into homes with clients who they have never worked with and have to learn quickly the clients behaviors. Some staff have reported being assaulted and harmed by clients (even though that comes with the territory in the human services field). Also, I gave them 2 weeks notification as required per their policy when I quit, only to have my supervisor...

      Advice to Management

      Increase manning and decrease the amount of time one individual spends on a block or pay them for their sleep periods. Increase the time of training for new employees and ensure employees and supervisors fully understand the polices and procedures.

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at InVision Human Services full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Okay pay, mostly decent hours, cell phone allowance (and discount through Verizon), laptop supplied, paid mileage and expenses, if you can prove them. Also free trainings at the main office (compliance and client/patient issues).

      Cons

      NOT enough training before being put in the field, not enough training on the computerized billing system, laptops supplied are old and don't run well, have to use your own car for far-flung assignments and to transport client/patients, in management's eyes the client is ALWAYS right and you are NOT, must chart in front of the client (uncomfortable).

      Advice to Management

      Spend a little more time training on billing and your expectations on wording for client notes, realize that your staff has a side of the story sometimes, and that you are dealing with possibly unstable individuals, by virtue of their diagnosis..I believe Ruth Siegfried means/meant well with creating the company, but it has slid downward since then. She needs to step up to the plate and change up the people who are so...

      Pros

      Supportive coworkers. Cohesive team environment with peers. Dedicated direct care staff.

      Cons

      Management is stubborn to make effective changes. Executives remain oblivious to unethical practices. Poor work-life balances.
