Unsafe work environment with incompetent management
Treatment/Education Specialist (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – December 22, 2015
Beginning August of 2015, the new management team of the Altercrest campus thought it prudent to remove consequences for the troubled youth, thinking only positive rewards would be sufficient to motivate the clients. This failed laughably. Clients there are mostly inner-city troubled youth with lengthy criminal records; the milieu quickly became unsafe as the clients became increasingly aggressive physically, attacking each other and staff on a nearly daily basis.
The new management team has been quick to blame everyone present except themselves for the mess, and has chewed out, written up, and demoted others when staff carried out their wishes to the letter. There are few staff there that aren't looking for other work; most of them are on this new management team, the rest are about to retire.
Violent, unsafe, management does not try to help
