the kids need you, company doesn't care about them or you
Youth Counselor (Former Employee) – Saco, ME – August 11, 2016
Sweetser will hurt people at the expense of its consumers. Example: Some former staff are barred from the grounds in perpetuity even if they still work in the field and their duties require them to attend meetings there. This therefore means that a child's entire provider team cannot be part of treatment. If asked to be reasonable, they will threaten you with legal action. This is flagrant disregard for ethical principles and best practice standards, to serve a personal vendetta. That is just one story, there are many.
The direct care staff offset the actions of the administration with their tireless dedication, for which they receive little thanks, and the real power in the company hides behind the actions of its direct care staff, which are heroic on a daily basis. So, they exploit staff and consumers alike.
Good staff don't last, poor staff get promoted.
The Kids! they need people to work with them!
only the inner circle matters there..nepotism and politics are rampant
