Outpatient Therapist, Beaver Falls, PA - May 13, 2017
I worked at Glade Run for over ten years. I stared with a position in Family Based, went to BHRS services and ended being an Outpatient Therapist. In the beginning, management was supportive. My original supervisor was invested in her staff and agency clients. Through the years, management changed and also their priorities. It became a money game with little focus on the clients and diminishing support towards their employees. Glade Run wants to hire the "best of the best" but does not pay competitive rates. Middle management have NO power, they serve as puppets for upper management, whom have completely lost touch with direct care. Managers advance their friends and family members. The last draw for me personally was when I felt "tolerated" not "appreciated" in the workplace. My clients enjoyed working with me and I had supportive co-workers. I was an excellent clinician awarded with prestigious honors for my work. Glade Run did not acknowledge or appear to care about these things. They will say that things "are turning around." Don't believe it! Glade Run has been forced to lay off staff and lost their main income source (RTF.) This is a sinking ship..don't get aboard.
