Honestly just a poor company to work for.
FBT (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – May 9, 2017
Pressley Ridge has a ton of turn over, and this leads to poor outcomes for kids and families. Yes, I have been asked to falsify reports. Yes I have been asked to hide files from inspection. Yes I have seen staff just not work but bill for work. I was shocked at what I saw there. Worst of all it bad for your career! It is not a stepping stone. Employers know their quality of staff. Those who stay at Pressley Ridge become angry, and they barely do their job and treat their coworkers badly. The horizontal violence at this place is unreal. There treatment site uses unqualified folks and they are very, extremely hard on the kids. If you work at Pressley Ridge you will suffer if you care about your profession, your clients, and yourself. You will get depressed, overweight, or take your pick. There is horrible supervision, and since all that matters is billable time, forget about wanting to be a better therapist. As a worker, salary is low for a masters in social work, benefits really do not help much, you lose vacation or are forced to take it, cannot cash it in, and the dental and eye just does not help. There is no respect even from case managers at other agencies because of the Pressley Ridge reputation. Anyone who gets a job at Pressley Ridge is just waiting for a sad awakening. Truly. You will throw away years of your life just to try to do what you thought you would be doing.
Read my review. The place is a sick sink hole for down and out therapists.
