    I worked at Wheeler Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only positive thing I have to say about this place was the employees that were entry-level with me such as front desk nursing staff that's all they were amazing and beautiful

    Cons

    Upper management micromanages they act like tyrants and will humiliate you they will not tell people about events in their lives such as deaths and families in order to fire the person without telling anyone so they won't seem to be mean they're awful they're mean a cut you off when you talk the manager kept saying she was better at assisting than the employees it was horrible it was the worst experience of my whole entire life

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging listen to your employees get rid of medical assistant supervisors they are not needed

    I worked at Wheeler Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice/supportive co-workers who all helped to train each other due to lack of any formal training

    Cons

    I was provided with absolutely no training for my job, and this seemed common for many new staff. The work environment was terrible and I was told to "live with it". I was told that I was not required to bring work home, but was called out at a meeting for not being a "team player" for not bringing work home. Management is focused on tasks and managers micromanage everyone, no matter what their position is. The job description did not match what the actual job was at all. There is a very high turnover rate in the company, which means everyone is new and trying to train each other. Lunch was "frowned upon".

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging, focus on training, Listen! to your employees

    Pros

    Plenty of training opportunities
    Flexibility in schedule
    Great opportunity to advance if you want to get into clinical work of management

    Cons

    Pay, management and constantly being held responsible for what clients do and don’t do.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to compensate their case managers properly. They are required to do so much yet they’re barely paid a liveable wage. I never understood how Intervention Specialists got paid more for doing less work. Not at all fair. Also, case managers cannot be held responsible for what clients do and don’t do. All we can do is provide the skills and resources and be as motivating as possible. Whether these ADULT clients decide to make a positive change in their lives is entirely on them.

    I worked at Wheeler Clinic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were regular pay increases.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations of staff and management - overburdened and burned out staff. Does not provide good clinical care (there would be clients who haven’t seen a clinician in weeks). This agency cares more about the bottom line than providing quality clinical care.

    Advice to Management

    See clients weekly and have realistic expectations of staff.

    Pros

    Said to be a fantastic workplace. Once began, it was everything but that.

    Cons

    The children are treated poorly by management. They refuse to accommodate any disability - instead find ways to fire or make you leave. People are forced to work 16 hours straight with no break. Loyal workers are forced to change their schedules often, forcing many to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Stop mandating people to work 16-19 hours straight. Treat children with care. Practice good ethics.

    Pros

    Good Team atmosphere, Professionals that care, good benefits and PTO, good starting point to get experience in clinical/behavioral field.

    Cons

    Growth in company limited to those with clinical license and some masters depending on program. Some overload of expected documentation can cause burn out with some staff.
