Program Directors Need a Shakeup
Clinician (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 25, 2018
4 directors in under 2 years says a lot about one program. A revolving door of highly motivated, exceptional staff who left because those same directors either did not support them or actively ignored their requests for work/life balance or request for professional development. HA has the potential to be an incredible human rights organization but it needs to make strides to meet the minimum basic rights of their employees. If you work here, be prepared to work and perform only 20% of your actual work duties, the rest of the time you will be asked to perform duties that have nothing to do with your qualifications and everything to do with the low staff coverage because everyone has either quit or is too exhausted with the unreal expectations set by those directors. Be prepared to have your work schedule changed on a whim under the guise of "programmatic needs", your judgment constantly second guessed and remaining, traumatized coworkers become too afraid to speak up about program abuses going on.
