    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, relatively flexible job duties, good people, good benefits, company supplies your with a nice phone for free or you can purchase a brand new one by making reasonable payments, nice laptops to work on, phones have reasonably good connection for travelling, you get company vehicles to drive which saves your own.

    Cons

    Not the best salary, not the best work environment ergonomically speaking, it's quite noisy and you will not have your own office so it's hard to find a quiet place to finish your notes, lots of petty women gossip due to not being kept busy enough plus some work drama, lots of pressure to achieve a certain productivity percentage and writing your notes to be medicaid compliant, big brother watching over your shoulder constantly due to lack of trust from supervisors in their staff, sometimes you can get a horrible supervisor who constantly breathes down your neck to make sure you're crossing your T's and dotting your i's so to speak.....too much pressure to get that percentage and not enough clients to help you get your daily quota. This company also has very poor communication despite all this hand dandy fancy equipment and tracking devices they give you. Oh, btw, forgot to mention that this company does track your every move, including when where and how often you use the bathroom daily. Seriously. If you are up to big brother watching your every move then I say go for it, otherwise, find another job. They will hire relatively quickly and fire relatively quickly as well. Beware. Good luck. I tried to transfer to another office due to personality conflict between myself and my supervisor but the supervisor I had refused to allow me to transfer. There was SO much stress for me and discrimination, as well. I was there a year. This company values more sales than it does quality client care, in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging!!!! Right Now!!!! You WILL not obtain productivity from your staff if you are consistently micromanaging and expecting your staff to "check in" with you twice to 3 times daily. Come on!!! Don't you think there are other ways to determine whether or not your staff is cheating the company out of quality work time and don't you think you hire way too many CSS's for the ratio of clients?!! I certainly think Nevada, MO does. There simply is NOT enough people who even live in Nevada, MO to even THINK about hiring any more than 4 maybe 5 CSS's let alone 20 of them plus PSS's!!
