Skills Trainer (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – January 13, 2018
Working at Trillium Family Services was both a challenge and a gift. The work environment was generally fast-paced and stressful, as we would attend to acute and prolonged crisis. Nonetheless, the position offered many benefits, including building rapport with the adolescents and staff, learning about dialectal behavior therapy, and learning more about mental health overall.
Qualified Mental Health Associate (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – January 8, 2018
Because this organization has been chronically understaffed, it is a stressful work environment on top of the already challenging work. The lack of staff and thorough training create dangerous situations for staff and clients alike.
Positive working culture limited by funding resources
Mid-Level Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – January 3, 2018
Interdepartmental communications are not where they need to be for the Sanctuary Model of Care culture to flourish. Management is very supportive but is limited to non-profit company's available funding--some years management has to take a decrease in pay in-order-for subordinates to have an annual wage increase.
Child and Family Therapist (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – December 22, 2017
Trillium has a very safe and secure community for employees. I felt part of a team and collaboration and teamwork was encouraged. There was freedom to be yourself and room for growth. Ideas were encouraged. Trainings were excellent. I felt supported and valued.

Intake Manager, Metro Region (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – December 21, 2017
I loved my coworkers and the work I did. I wish they paid more. I find my supervisor to be very supportive. I felt overworked, which is partly my fault, but also is encouraged by the environment, as much as they try not to have it that way.

Wouldn’t recommend working here. Management and HR are not very supportive and people lose their jobs for the silliest reasons like gossip and there are usually no investigations done. Be very careful about who you work with here and what you say and do. It’s pretty much high school all over again.
Poor management, lack of leadership, hostile work environment
Therapeutic Skills Trainer (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – September 2, 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with TFS. Although there have been some issues with management and budgets, I always felt supported and heard. Ideas were met with understanding and allowances to implement them.
Skills Trainer II (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – September 2, 2017
I've never experienced a job that was so demanding, but so rewarding at the same time. Working with the clients that you do, you get to see progress almost everyday. The days are long, and sometimes extremely draining, but I looked forward to coming back everyday. There are struggles between teams, and could use more structure, and better staffing, but overall I would say this job showed me what I want to do in life, and I loved it.
a place to grow and learn about yourself and others
Skills Trainer 2 (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – August 5, 2017
You will receive continual support from all members of your team. You will experience moments of success and moments of heartache.This is true life and you are able to be part of others working hard to change and succeed in their everyday life.
Child and Family Therapist (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – July 19, 2017
I liked working at Trillium. Several of the people were great to work with and I advanced into the position that I wanted within a few months. I liked the atmosphere of support at first, but when I transferred, that feeling did not transfer with me. Just be careful and make sure what you are doing is the right thing. Both when considering working for Trillium, but also in the decisions you make when you are working there.
Administrative (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – July 13, 2017
Worse than high school. Lots of gossip and lies even from managers and supervisors. Rules are constantly changing and everything you do is unappreciated. Many double standards. Compensations is not worth it.
Residential Skills Trainer II (Current Employee) – Corvallis, OR – July 10, 2017
Closed system, often left with little to no proper staffing around acuity and staff safety. Very little recognition for trauma done to staff through physical assault of unnamed varieties. High turnover rate and low retention.
Residential Skills Trainer (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – March 17, 2017
My time at Trillium Family Services was unfortunately short. Despite my sudden resignation my supervisors were understanding and compassionate. I have never worked for an company that was more supportive to their employees than Trillium. Five Stars!
Great team members but the management needs improvement.
Residential Skills Trainer (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – March 14, 2017
This is a highly toxic work environment. They talk about self care and getting support but they purposefully stay low staffed. Long hours, and you never really know when your shift will end. I feel like they are trying to do good work, but they don't focus enough on staff training and preparing people for the day to day work they are supposed to be doing.
free low grade meals, beautiful campus
No breaks or lunches, you rarely leave on time, rats everywhere
Dinner cook (Former Employee) – Parry Center For children – September 19, 2016
I was a night cook there, loved the clients, and most of staff, however a union was in place which I joined immediately, after my training, I was expected to work off clock since they only paid 8 hr s a day. I tried to attend meetings with union which I was never allowed to attend due to the meetings always being on days I worked. I sadly had to give notice, but am relieved that I no longer have that stress, which by the way, they are a SAFE and HEALTHY work place, NOT..... Avoid Trillium like the plague and question their non profit status too.
