    I worked at Pioneer Center for Human Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The clients are the best reason for working at Pioneer.

    Cons

    They can't decide if they should expand or minimize - 3 separate layoffs in the 6 years I was there.

    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

    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.

    Pros

    There is room for employees to have separate offices, flex hours and benefits.

    Cons

    There is extreme disorganization, lack of professionalism and therapist burn out. It is basically a medicaid billing mill and the therapy comes second.

    Advice to Management

    Work on team building, improving management communication, focusing on therapy, not scheduling clients back to back and respecting your employee's time.
