Management (Former Employee) – Spokane – October 31, 2018
No one cares about you. Bad management and very low morale. Money money money is the bottom line. Not people, just money. No honesty about all the bad 5hings that happened in Washington. Ashamed to work here

This was a great job, Very challenging for clients as for staff
The "We Say Yes" moto is BS. This company is about money. However they can get it. Embassy does not care about the individuals, the staff or really anyone for that matter. They are by far the most top heavy company I have ever seen. If you want no life and to live in constant fear of losing your job then Embassy is the place for you. Upper management will throw good people under the bus to save themselves. Their lack of support of local leadership is atrocious. I all love all the obvious sycophantic post from current mangers on here. Even with that there overall ratings are extremely poor. If you have loved ones here, move them to another agency.
Awful experience I was very sad to leave clients I felt extremely sad and felt I gave up on them
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – April 13, 2018
Individuals was the only best part of the day. the experience and how I was treated after long days and weeks working 16 hour days was awful. Management don’t treat individuals how they should be treated.
No break, complaining when not working extra 8 hours, treated poorly
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – February 26, 2018
Embassy management in Washington Vancouver : Inadequate program supervisors who barely know what is going around n in the houses until something blows over than they are there to blame the staff and to see who they can put blame on so they can quickly disappear again... pay is awful, get paid better at McDonald’s
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Idaho Falls, ID – February 17, 2018
On a local level the management and staff are all amazing. The corporate tends to be top-heavy with their Staffing too many managers not enough dsps. Upper management has no clue how to run the business but they think they know everything. Local managers are pretty amazing though.
It's a job
They walk all over you, and you're replaceable. They won't let you forget that.
One of the worst jobs i have ever had. They pay you a salary amd expect you to work 80 hours per week.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mountlake Terrace, WA – February 1, 2018
The lack of empathy by this company is sad to say the least. They do not care about their employees and they show it by how they treat you. The turnover rate is high because they expect you to work 80 hours a week and then refuse to pay you compensation. My advice is to run from this company. They make promises of advancement to manipulate people into staying and never fulfill the promise.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – December 19, 2017
I hurt my back while on shift. I was treated horribly because of this. This is the only company I have worked for that another employee can “taddle” on another employee and then get the employee reprimanded to the point of an actual write up! Horrible management!
LDSP (Former Employee) – Boise, ID – August 16, 2017
Great entry level position working with individuals who are developmentally disabled. Flexible with schedule, overtime options, advancement opportunities, and great all around work culture. Pay competitive to other companies in the field for the same entry level position. Management gets stressed and it can be hard to get ahold of a supervisor when they are short staffed. Overall a great place to work.
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Washington State – August 11, 2017
With an internal company motto of "We Say Yes", to everything related to growing the bottom line and little to serving our disabled clients or dedicated employees, Embassy is left with staff at all levels in a state of despair and scrambling to meet unrealistic goals. I've watched employees from all departments throughout the company leave as the work environment continues to degrade.
Serving disabled clients
Lack of support, turnover, low pay, unrealistic expectations, poorly made decisions
Fun Enviroinment and Leaders who are Focused on Possibilities not Problems
Executive Director (Current Employee) – Washington, Idaho and Oregon – July 26, 2017
For those who are familiar with this field, there is not a lack of challenges or problems that can arise on a daily basis as we are people working with people. From my experience, what makes Embassy unique and a wonderful place to work is their focus on the possibilities and solutions rather than getting stuck on the challenge.
The work that we do MATTERS and we have the opportunity to change the lives of the people we support, their families and our staff with each interaction.
Opportunities to advance exist for those who show initiative and drive and there are examples of leaders promoted from within at all levels of the organization. This commitment to developing leaders and promoting from within has created an extraordinarily dedicated and passionate leadership team who also like to have a lot of fun.
Opportunities to advance, fun work environment, ability to effect change
Manager (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – June 27, 2017
I love working for this company. Whether you work directly with clients or on the administration side, everything we do directly impacts the quality of services provided to our clients. I believe in our executive leadership and their vision to positively effect change through out the organization. Our operational staff are amazing. They work very hard to provide exceptional support to our clients.
Great place to work - provides opportunities to advance, as well as having a truly caring attitude towards their employees and the people they support
Regional Director (Current Employee) – Idaho – May 31, 2017
I love the opportunities that Embassy provides to staff and the individual that they support. They really care about the lives of each person that they encounter and listen to their wants and needs and take steps to fulfill those. I can easily approach leadership with ideas, concerns and get feedback and support that helps me in my position as well as for those that I support. Each day is a new chance to learn and impact lives in a positive manner.
Employment Services (Current Employee) – Spokane, WA – May 31, 2017
I love working for Embassy. Plenty of room for advancement if you show initiative and have a strong work ethic. Upper management truly cares and holds a high standard for their service. I started as an Employment Consultant and was promoted to a carved supervisory position within 6 months. My manager provides monthly group and one on one training's. This is a company that has great integrity and shows appreciation to it's employees through earned bonuses and fun parties!
Great PTO, paid holidays, plenty of room for advancement
The group and team attitude that people have at Embassy makes my job fun and rewarding. The social services industry is a challenging place to work in because of the volume of individuals we serve, but at the end of each day I am thankful to know what I am doing is helping others.
Program Supervisor (Former Employee) – Coeur d'Alene, ID – June 5, 2016
I was hired to program supervisor (PS) for a company with Embassy. The other program supervisor who was to train me was just getting off from doing a graveyard shift to cover for the lack of direct service providers (dsp) that was available. I knew there would be occasions in which I was to cover for positions, but they were paying the dsp so poorly that they were dropping off like flies, leaving a full 8-5 job for PS ...and any shifts that dsp were unable to man. They are so understaffed that it literally like working a 60-70 hour job. The company needs to reevaluate how they pay and staff their employees. I quit on day on because I could not fathom working crazy hours, taking care of two young kids, missing out on family life, balancing my Master's degree, AND handling the stresses of the job. The pay just did not fit for the amount of hours I would be working. I warn others to be conscious about the red flags.
The employees were really nice but obvious that they were overworked and tired.
The company is understaffed, over worked, and underpaid.
