    I worked at Passages Malibu full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    nice view overlooking the ocean but that's about it

    Cons

    toxic work environment, no support from hr or management, little to no room for growth within the company, employees are mistreated and underpaid for the work that is done. This was one of the worst work experiences I have ever had. The staff are not friendly or welcoming, and in my time there I watched multiple employees start and quit within a week. Don't bother starting

    Caring father and son team, always respectful, Beautiful place to work at the view helps to get through any day, Great teamwork, Nice loving family atmosphere

    The drive is always difficult but it allows to time to sing, sometimes return calls But mostly just take in the ocean view which provides the start of the day relaxing and allows the end of the day to unwind.

    I worked at Passages Malibu full-time

    Pros

    Great working clinicians. Very caring and talented therapists that care about their clients.

    Cons

    Poor communication with higher up administrators. Always confused with direction and poor structure. You are always confused due to administrators saying that you are doing a good job and then find out that they have to fire the staff that they just hired. High turn over!!! Your Job is never secure even though they lie and say it is. Lack of training and when they do have training it changes after and are more confused and not sure what direction they are taking. More focused on paperwork and caseload than caring for their employees and clearly communicating with them or considering their needs.

    I have been working at Passages Malibu full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - As a recent new hire, I thought I received sufficient training. I shadowed a fellow RS (Resident Support) and RS Lead who allowed me to ask questions as we went along - Documentation is done on the KIPU system which is user friendly. WiFi is all throughout the properties. - Training is provided for the following if you don’t already have it: CPR, RADT - Monthly RS staff meetings with RS Manager, Clinical Director and COO - All of the staff at Passages Malibu are friendly and approachable - As a current RS, I feel like a valued team member among everyone when it comes to our relationships with every client. - Coffee is always available in the office - Lots of walking. I usually meet my daily step goal at work. No need to go to the gym!

    Cons

    - The commute. I always use Google Maps because traffic and road conditions are unpredictable

    I worked at Passages Malibu for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Salaries are just a bit above from average for most positions

    Cons

    The attitude of the upper management leaves much to be desired. People are fired constantly for no-sense reasons. Company is very unorganized. Just as an example, CFO was fired. New "interim" CFO does not seem to know how to handle things around.
