    I worked at Pioneer Center for Human Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clients respond favorably to new programs and new ideas from incoming staff.

    Cons

    Jaded staff protect their "gossip time" and do not produce work after clients leave PSR program for the day. Jaded staff will tear down hard workers who keep their heads down and do their billing work. Leave or better yet, don't apply. Pioneer is not good on your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Train your supervisors in human relations so they are not toxic to their employees.

    Pros

    Some of the employees (the ones that actually did the work to keep the organization running) were very good people, hard workers.

    Cons

    For a not for profit, they sure can waste money on things they don't actually need even when money is very tight.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the big dollar Senior management and have a volunteer management. Learn to treat people with some respect

    I worked at Pioneer Center for Human Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    ioneer has the ability to give the ckiiiits the training for living in the community indepensently. The uhpper management does not give the iopurtunity y]to try these \out. The upper management is a click and if are not part of it you know you will be firred,

    Cons

    clicks, bad management, overworked, no professional codes followed, no respect to their fellowco- workers and clients and their families

    Advice to Management

    show respect to each other. It will not get out to the families. Stoop the clicks and back up your fellow staff. There are many more but cant type it all,

    I worked at Pioneer Center for Human Services full-time

    Pros

    The patient's. Having the opportunity to be a positive influence on a person's recovery.

    Cons

    Management. Lack of upper level management so the place is held up by completely unqualified lower level management. I have never seen such a jaded healthcare staff, as well. Very sad situation for patient's and a miserable working environment for staff.

    Advice to Management

    Get more qualified management, have someone supervise lower level positions, they are running the facility and don't know what they are doing. There are so many issues with the way PCE is run I understand why you can find or keep a director.

    I worked at Pioneer Center for Human Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The clients are awesome and some staff are great. The environment nice and rewards helping clients

    Cons

    This place has no leadership. The management keeps employee that are cancers to Pioneer and get rid of staff that care about staff. HR department is not for the employees but for poor management. If they not there for employees how they treat the clients. The training is the worst HR so unorganized and not professional.

    Advice to Management

    Needs new manangement for the DD homes!!

    It's fun working with the clients. Seeing them do stuff for them self and be happy about it. Helping them be a part of something and a family

    Cons

    Short staffed lack of training people that don't like you will set you up to fail and be ready for the law suit

    Advice to Management

    Get new management

    I worked at Pioneer Center for Human Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I would have to think very hard to find one but I would say you feel sorry for the people this place is supposed to be helping.

    Cons

    The pay is low! Extremely low!! Management disrespects the employees, All this place is about is collecting money from the state. Office politics at its worst! No one in upper management cares about anything but causing disfuction. The clients are just numbers to this company and are being used to collect money. Bottom line: this place is a disaster!
    The employment specialist has no heart or training to work in this place.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all management. Bring in sincere people who know how to talk to people and work out things out in a respectful way.

    it has a good POTENTIAL

    Cons

    extremely low pay, disrespectful management, a lot of office politics-disgusting, it's a billing mill where clients never come first, people that bill don't get paid, dead weight at the top.

    Advice to Management

    most should quit, no point in so many managers

    Great benefits and great Co workers

    Cons

    No proper training No compassion for employees who need advice or stress release and drilling into their employees that they should never befriend a co worker

    Advice to Management

    Show more compassion, don't use employees questions against them....step into the shoes of your employee before judging them

    Pros

    The Organization has a good mission, trying to help the unfortunate. MI, Homeless, substance abuse.

    Cons

    The organizations spend money on things they don't really need, because someone gave them a grant or donation.. Don't plan out more than current year, if that, and is a pipedream.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together or move on.
