lack of organization and structure
Marriage and family therapist (Former Employee), Los AngelesFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: working from home, laptops and phones provided
Cons: no incentives/raises, no structure and upper management could care less
I received next to no training while working here. A complete lack of stucture and organization. There is no communication and you will be transferred clients when someone quits. There is a high turn over rate also. I wanted to quit after 2 months. Managers do not care about what is going on and are oblivious to ethical/legal issues (there are many). There are currently no bonuses, raises or incentives but yet to are expected to maintain productivity. Yes they will start you at a higher wage then other agencies, but remember you dont get a raise. They also reimburse mileage at .40 cents and will not give more. When communicating with other people in the company such as payroll, peers or supervisors, they rarely return phone calls or emails. I strongly suggest working for someone else even if you get paid less as it's not worth it at Shields.
