Alternate Advisor (Former Employee) – Pottsville, PA – July 9, 2018
I enjoyed working at Community. I worked with great families and clients. The clients abilities varied and the job I performed could not be limited to any one specific task, but I liked that about the job I did with CSG. My only reason for seeking other employment was I did not make enough money to pay for all my bills and expenses.

Management is out for their selves and do not help staff. They do not approve your days off a lot. Benefits are ok, some staff you work with are alright while others would through you under the bus to protect themselves.

The residents are great and some of the staff are great to work with. You have favorites in the place so things that's shouldn't be overlooked are when it's certain people. The program director doesn't wanna hear any issues going on. Pto is supposed to be good but you can't use it unless you find someone to cover your shift. If you actually do your job then you won't be treated the way u should be.
Direct Support Staff (Former Employee) – Catawissa, PA – June 14, 2018
I enjoyed my time at CSG. The staff got along pretty well, and the individuals were great to work with. The only complaint I have is that CSG does not promote themselves well enough to spur awareness of employment. We were consistently understaffed.
Staff (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – May 16, 2018
If you like to work for a company who gives you NO raises and keeps piling more and more work on you, than this is the place to work. If you like to work with managers who are hypocrites, then again, this is the place to work. Finally, if you want to work with a manager who has no empathy or any idea how to properly handle staffs' needs, than this is the place you want to work for. Good Luck!
Mental Health Direct Support (Current Employee) – Central PA – April 25, 2018
CSG offers great flexibility if you're working PRN (as needed). That's the one thing that has me contemplating whether or not I want to give up this job; I worry that I wont find another part time job that's as flexible.
The pay, for a PRN job, isn't bad. However, I definitely couldn't survive on that if I worked full time. I'm not sure how others do, especially those who have kids.
The location I work at is a stressful environment mostly due to staff. The atmosphere is constant negativity, no teamwork, arguing, etc. It's unprofessional and nothing is ever done about it, despite having brought up concerns/ideas/suggestions to management.
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Former Employee) – Lock Haven, PA – March 31, 2018
Management was easy to get along with and work with. A normal work day is bathing, feeding, cleaning, laundry and more. The residents were enjoyable to be around. The bad part of the job was giving them there medicine.
Direct Services Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Williamsport, PA – March 28, 2018
I enjoyed working with the Mental Health population. I found myself wanting to do more for them then I was so called allowed to. I learned so many things about myself as well as the programs provided to the consumers. I gained confidence in myself as a care provider. CSG is an exceptional company and I am proud to had worked there
The Director of the program I was involved in was great. My immediate Supervisor was also very good. The middle manager over my immediate supervisor appeared to have favorites, it was obvious. I was not one of them. She would not allow me to do anything extra for the residents. Such as was not allowed to transport items to one of the residents in my program so the grandfather did not have to make the 60 mile round trip. I will never understand that. She denied anything I wanted to do for them.
The only recommendation I have is controlling the schedules for PRNs or trainees. There was inequity in how the hours were assigned. It wasn't organized except for on a calendar. If you were lucky enough to get on the calendar or were part of a cliche you received hours.
The hardest part of the job was seeing residents suffer from their illnesses, understanding that some may never recover or cannot.
The most enjoyable part of the job was making my residents laugh, dancing and singing with them. I enjoyed listening to and conversing with each and everyone of them. I would provide cigarettes, soda, candy and some cash when they were running low. And the best part is seeing the residents progress within their recovery. It ismore... a beautiful thing.less
I felt it was a good wage and believe that CSG does a lot for their employees.
No schedule when there could be for PRNs. Inequity of hours alloted.
Management in dire need of sensitivity training...and A LOT of it!
Case Management (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – March 16, 2018
There is no employee interaction unless you are established. Favoritism and cut-throat ethics are rampant in the Harrisburg location. Management offers NO constructive criticism but plenty acknowledgement of an employee's short comings. If you are excited to receive all training of the job from online courses and webinars, minus in-person shadowing or guidance, this job is for you! Good luck...the turnover is VERY high! Go ahead, accept a job position with this organization and particular location and let us know how it works out for you...
Company cars provided for travel and somewhat decent salary
EVERYTHING other than access to compan cars for travel and a somewhat decent salary
If you like to be micro-managed...this is the place for you.
Staff (Former Employee) – Lancaster County, PA – February 12, 2018
Worked here for over 10 years. I had to leave because I felt I was forced out of my job. The micro-managing became so terrible that it became impossible for me to do my job. My direct manager at the time I left would not listen to any suggestions that were made and everything had to be her way, no exceptions. Also, it seemed that no matter how hard you worked, it was hardly ever recognized. If it was, there was always a nice little comment made like, "You did good, BUT..... In addition, the pay was terrible for the amount of work that was placed on you and you hardly ever received a raise. In fact, it was more important for CSG to give out BLUE BUCKS to employees than real money. Good luck if you choose to work for this company!!
Therapeutic Staff Support (Former Employee) – Lancaster, PA – January 8, 2018
Learned different strategies and interventions with individuals with special needs. Team worked well together and had each other's back. When problems occurred we worked together as a team to come up with solutions.
Behavorial Specialist (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – January 6, 2018
Management is poor, communication is a struggle. You get different answers from different management then get disciplined for something you were told to do. Lack of support, require you to be overworked to the point there is no way to keep up with the job load and then let’s just fire you for no reason without ever being written up....really professional!
