Overall the clinic had seem like an amazing opportunity to work. Turns out it was very cliquey with other employees. The owner played favorites. They didn’t care if you were out with COVID.
There are monthly team meetings at the Sunshine room where everyone gets together and talk about the progress in Acorn. They will play fun activities that will encourage team bonding and grow together as a company and as individuals. The team is engaging and everyone is amazing, kind, and goofy. This is the best work enviroment I have ever worked in!
This is by far the best place I have ever worked at. The culture and the belief that every child gets a smile is absolutely amazing. I am proud and honored to be working for a company that has so much opportunity for growth, truly cares about their employees, and makes it so much fun to come to work everyday. I can honestly say that I found my work home!
High turnover rate for employees They will hire anyone off the street No management whatsoever. Terrible communication with team. Office is dirty and falling apart. Assistants there have no proof of license. Mandatory volunteer hours expected. Cameras throughout office, makes you feel violated and as if no one can be trusted. All mandatory classes are paid out of pocket by employee. Must travel to all clinics. They fire people without any record or wrongs. Lots of back stabbing by employees. Office is full of drama! Wage increase for positive work ethic is non existent. Required to do public education. Expected to work with malfunctioning equipment. Any issues must be fixed by employees. Some employees do not follow PPE guidelines Employer makes sure office knows they don’t make any money but expected to work like robots Team Captain talks badly about entire staff.
This was a difficult company to be in middle management. It seemed every few weeks, priorities changed, and managers were expected to sell a new high-level idea or buzzword to team members who were struggling with low wages and low staffing. The CEO attributed this to being a 'quick start personality' but didn't display understanding of feedback on how these constant changes affected operations. Most new initiatives are implemented based on the 'quick start personality' as opposed to observing or listening to actual needs in the clinics. The role of the middle manager in this company is very specific but not really defined. Upper management offers copious criticism and not very much positive affirmation. I felt that expectations for having managers have meaningful conversations with team members, while team members struggle to keep up with short appointments and high workload, were unreasonable and unattainable. Behavior of team members is micromanaged, while operations are ignored.
