A New Leaf, Meas, AZ - Horrible Company To Work For
Finance (Former Employee), Mea, AZ – November 25, 2013
CFO is completely insane and is a control freak! Absolutely, positively, the WORST and most unprofessional, childish boss I have ever worked for in my career. She compulsively lies about everything, then plays the card that she is the victim to the other executives and board members. There is no accountability for her actions and she is never disciplined – more... as if she is above the "law". For some reason, the CFO and CEO always protect her.
STAY FAR AWAY FROM A NEW LEAF! IT IS A COMPANY YOU NEVER, EVER WANT TO WORK FOR! – less
Bilingual Clinician I (Former Employee), Glendale, AZ – October 23, 2013
Pros: coworkers, clients, services and supports available. childcare at a fraction of a cost for employees.
Cons: productivity requirements, pay, no additional trainings (employee must pay for own trainings).
There was no such thing as a typical day at work; each was different and some were presented with challenges while others with rewarded outcomes. On any given day I was required to complete several assessments and complete at least 5 individual or family counseling sessions. I particularly enjoyed working with the medical staff and the psychiatrists. – more... I enjoyed the collaboration. The hardest part of the job was meeting the productivity demands of the management which were set up very high and often left an employee feeling exhausted. The most enjoyable part of the job was advocating for the children and being a voice for those needing healing and support. – less
Med tech and caregiver (Current Employee), Meridian, ID – September 26, 2013
This is a great place to work. It is fun and educational. The clients and co-workers are fun to work with. The hardest part of the job is finding new ways to help the client learn and program with there disabilities.
Landscape Manager (Former Employee), Tulsa, OK – August 27, 2013
Pros: fun and creative projects and fundraisers.
Cons: very low pay.
I worked with adults with developmental disabilities. I taught my crew how to work with each other, how to work out in the community, how to plant and water. It was so great to see them gain confidence and be more productive. One of the best jobs I've ever had.
accounting team member (Former Employee), Mesa, AZ – March 24, 2013
It's a nonprofit so you'd think people would be nice and friendly and helpful. Forget about that. The person in charge of the accounting department likes her staff to not get along so they will rat each other out. Unqualified, unprofessional, and miserable people can have long-term employment here. Don't try to make process improvements; they are not – more... wanted. If you would like to help someone, think twice. The unqualified staff are paranoid, defensive and think they know everything, even if your knowledge, experience and training tells you that you are 100% correct and they are wrong. You are not allowed to do the job you were hired to do and usually because your coworkers will stop you and management will look the other way. Financial statements are constantly fudged because 'they don't look right'. I'm surprised they still have funding for their programs. Double and triple billing occurs here. And before you start thinking you are a professional, you will be put on a rotation to clean the kitchen and bathroom. For this little bit of heaven on earth, you get to have low pay and poor benefits. – less
Enjoyed the clients. Management was very challenging.
IBI (Former Employee), Meridian, ID – February 20, 2013
Pros: great kids to work with.
Cons: management was very threatening. required to work more than 40 hours.
Behavior therapy with kids in school, at the center and in the community. The children were the best part. Supervisors were very unpredictable and threatening. Hostile work environment. It seemed nobody was happy to work there. Unknown expectations. Required to work more than 40 hours per week. Training was awful.
Behavior Health ParaProfessional (Former Employee), Mesa, AZ – January 28, 2013
Pros: free activities and participation w/in the organization
Cons: you may end up working past your shift if an incident took place.
The environment and services this company provides is in fairness, in all respects to the those affiliated with this business. This place is under strict supervision by the staff and other organizations associated with A New Leaf. A typical day is supervising and waking up clients making them breakfast and enforce their daily schedule for their treatment. I've – more... acquired new skills in maintaining control under stressful situations and showing constructive positive support towards clients. The co-workers in a majority had the same goals and same desire for the clients and therefore worked together as role models especially during conflicts. The hardest part about the job was departure of the clients. The most enjoyable part of the job is witnessing the successes from the program. – less
