    I have been working at Pathways Comm Behav Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn to work with a variety of clients. You can qualify for tuition repayment at some rural locations, check with the National Health Service. It can be busy, but it's an easy job for an experienced therapist. You are never on call, not required to work evenings or weekends. No in home therapy. They provide out of office training but you have to advocate for yourself.

    Cons

    The pay is low, at last 5,000-8,000 lower than similar not for profit surrounding companies. CEO is aware, but no current plans to increase salaries. Most offices are in poor condition (no windows, dirty, falling apart). Therapists have to buy their own supplies, if you see children this can get expensive. Your success is measured by how many hours you bill, not client progress or satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay, you are losing good therapists due to low pay. Improve office space, at times it feels like a prison, not a mental health facility. Take advantage of your therapists' expertise by matching them up with clients who would benefit. Centralized Scheduling simply sends clients to therapists randomly and it's difficult to refer them once they have built a rapport.

    I worked at Pathways Comm Behav Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility in terms of working and raising a family. Supportive work environment. Great management. They promote from within. The company philosophy is client centered. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    The company spans Missouri and parts of Louisiana. It is divided between multiple different regions with different management. There are vast differences between different regions in terms of how things are done. It can be confusing to clients and employees who move from one service area to another. Also, pay is relatively low however this is a non-profit so pay will be commensurate.

    Advice to Management

    Work on improving consistency agency wide. Increased pay would be a great benefit.

    I worked at Pathways Comm Behav Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An amazing opportunity to work with client with severe mental illness, coworkers are often supported, field base amazing opportunity to see how broken the mental health system is.

    Cons

    Management is horrible! They treat their workers very poorly and pay them worse. It is very clear that the focus is on profits and not on the clients. They don't pay you the overtime that you have to work in order to meet their ridiculous standards for productivity and documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees so poorly. Create more teams and hire more people. Pay them a living wage so there's not so much turnover which is horrible for the clients. Contract with the county and Melina healthcare for lower productivity rate and lower caseloads to a reasonable amount.

    Great and helpful coworkers, flexibility, paid time off, and holidays are among the enjoyable parts of the job. Direct supervisors are supportive and encouraging.

    Cons

    Continuously changing policy, unfair management practices, unhelpful or supportive management, unbelievably low pay for the difficulty of the job and expectations.

    Pros

    Clients, flexible hours, career opportunities if you are willing to do your job plus the jobs of everyone else.

    Cons

    HR, low pay, no appreciation, no raises, high turn over rate....seemed like HR and everyone wanted their hands in the cookie jar but had little knowledge of the clients. HR/ CEO sits behind their desk and dictates how to run the program. During my employment, we were always short staffed. Not once did HR or the CEO offer any support. They expect for staff and managers to work 50+ hours a week then wonder why there is such a high turn over rate. Not once did they ever get out from behind their desk and offer to be hands on.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking you are above staff and the supervisors. You talk down to staff and anyone not on the executive team. Also stop talking about other staff. I can't count the number of times I was in the office where the QA director and COO were talking about other staff members negatively with the door wide open.
