Medical Office Specialist (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – March 3, 2018
Was excited to go into the medical field when finishing school thought everyone that had schooling and a degree would be professional NOPE! Poor management nothing was private and personal about their employees management was very poor. Never worked for a two face industry they can say one thing and then turn on you.
Therapist (Former Employee) – SLC, UT – January 19, 2018
For most of my long career at Valley I had great supervisory support, and professional advancement opportunities which allowed me to balance the low pay and lack of work life balance. I chose to leave due to management changes and sudden lack of support, care, or understanding for what my multiple roles entailed. They have a new trend of promoting unqualified or credentialed people to prominence. It’s embarrassing to see what has become of many well respected programs. Business and clinical management are not in line with trauma informed client centered care, choices are not done to support clients or clinical staff rather to support money and to save face in their community contracts. More importantly the client care has suffered across some of the most vulnerable populations.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 16, 2018
I feel like have people who I am excited to work with every day. It can be stressful at times because it's busy but that is what helps with the sense of accomplishment. It definitely isn't more than I can handle. What makes it great is that people are willing to collaborate with me and work to solve problems, not blame each other. It isn't perfect, but I truly feel like we're trying to be innovative in how we do things and while that change can be hard it means we're getting to a better place. As part of an organization that is trying to help improve the lives of others I feel like people try to treat each other in a good way as well. Love the team I work with!
Office Specialist (Former Employee) – Millcreek, UT – January 10, 2018
There is no chance for a raise or promotion. A lot of gossip and talking behind people's back. I worked very hard for what little compensation there is. The work is fine but the co-workers cause a lot of stress and nothing is done about it. I've worked for other offices and they have strong policies in place to help with having a positive and good work experience.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 5, 2017
While this company was pretty good overall, my department morale and support was very poor. Negative feedback, negative talk, and constant questioning, was very draining, and the work and environment we worked in was very difficult. Management seemed to be an issue, as my coworkers and myself felt more negative every day at this job, as nothing we did ever seemed to be right. Immature management, and very controlling and powerful, made for an overall bad experience.
Therapist (Former Employee) – SLC, UT – November 21, 2017
Valley Behavioral Health is a train wreck. The biggest issues are management and compensation. The CEO and his posse are completely disconnected from what is actually happening in regards to client care and employees. No one is allowed to provide feedback without risk of being fired or asked to resign immediately. It's a very unhealthy culture. They do not act in congruence with company values. They constantly say they will give raises but it never happens. Even after a promotion, they will drag you along for months saying you will get x amount of money, but then it never happens. I am ashamed to have Valley on my resume and I would never recommend Valley as a company to work for nor as a place to receive care.
RN Staff Nurse womens program (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 23, 2017
They make you float, nurse mgr yells loud an causes alot of distress on unit as well as lack of confidentiality. Management does not have our back they need to place blame on someone, there is no education on the units such as how to care for certain type of patient, no nursing reference books on unit, many things are punitive instead of constructive.
0 Empathy, any attemp to explain your issues is regarded as minimal
Confidential ( Former Employer ) (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 9, 2017
very poor management, I was the 2nd person for this position in a year. They did not train me well to do the my job I learned somethings by 1 coworker. only thing I liked about the job was the coworkers the location was a very good one. I felt drained in every way possible and definitely demoralized.I would discourage anyone from ever working here. Your time and energy and effort will be better spent elsewhere. Your personal mental health and well-being should be too valuable to allow this place to destroy it.
Certified Case Manager (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 27, 2017
I have worked with Valley around 3 years as a case manager .. I love my client and really enjoyed my job.. However, the reason behind quitting this job is never get raise and never receive support or appreciation from uppper management.. CEO mentioned that it's very costly for him to visit housing unit which is very unprofessional to me .. CEO loved to slack on his political views on work channel which is the most unprofessional.. within my 3 years of employment , I have seen great employees and therapist are left because of low pay and staffs are not treated well.. I have worked in the housing unit and not safe to work alone specially during weekend.. Upper management seems like they are getting more pay and don't have any voice or support to their employees regarding their salary or pay raise .
Low pay, no growth and lack of support from upper management
poor management was not trained to do the job and was laid off after 5 months
Office Specialist (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 6, 2017

Program Manager (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 4, 2017
The executive team at Valley Behavioral Health is working to destroy all clinical programs. Most of the best senior staff have resigned or been fired. The CEO has no empathy for employees and is driven by his personal need to be known. He has surrounded himself with "yes" people and doesn't really know what is going on most of the time. This used to be a great place to work but it is now awful.
MHPP (Former Employee) – Barling, AR – August 23, 2017
After a year and a half of working at Valley, I watched many people come and even more leave. Pay is terrible and the administration is worse. Keep your head down and mouth shut is the best way to survive. I made 9 an hour and after a year I got a raise of 18 cents. New people made more than me but when asked about it, again, administration couldn't give an answer. Administration- can't explain themselves Turnover- extremely high!
No breaks, no room for advancement, administration
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – August 7, 2017
I worked for Valley for 10 years and when I finally left I felt drained in every way possible and definitely demoralized. No raises since 2008, terrible benefits and extremely stressful work environments. Tons of office drama, terrible management, and productivity requirements which always felt impossible to reach. I would discourage anyone from ever working here. Your time and energy and effort will be better spent elsewhere. Your personal mental health and well-being should be too valuable to allow this place to destroy it.
