ManagementDuring closure and after opening during pandemic, there was no communication from CEO therefore no leadership.CultureAll these ratings are based on PRE-covid environment. They did a sloppy and clunky job communicating with furloughed workers and frankly insulting letters of termination went out.OverallAmazing place to work PRE-covid-19. Awful communication and environment during re-opening. Insulting letters of termination were sent to all who were moved from furloughed to laid off.

Upper management lies to your face.
Upper management demanded employees work at other houses constantly. The response was you work for the company not a particular house. Never supported or investigated complaints on other employees not showing up for shifts, harassment, potential violence, tardiness, or being on phones constantly. They were worried about not having enough people to make state required ratios. Upper management would make it seem as if the whistleblower was the problem and not provide support. Very disappointed and discouraged.

COVID Exacerbated Existing Problems
My department was never an issue, however we interacted closely with the school. Leadership said barely anything in terms of guidance around the pandemic and furloughed numerous employees on a Sunday. Communication between departments and leadership is dismal. I had so much respect for this company when I began but it has become clear that the true goal of those who run the company is to make money and not about their clients or employees.

Upper management does not care about their employees
The Morrison Center has the potential to be a wonderful place to work. However, lack of communication, respect for employees, and concern for employee safety has driven me away from this agency. The “leadership” team does not listen to employee concerns regarding caseload, student and employee safety related to COVID-19, or constructive ideas for the agency. When urgent concerns arose regarding employment agreements, employee and student safety, or personal needs, the HR department ignored all emails and phone calls. They mailed letters to employees who have been with the company for decades informing them that their positions were terminated. They are not following safety protocols related to COVID-19, thus putting the vulnerable students and employees at risk without giving an option to work remotely. Members of the leadership team have been observed to be within 6 feet of their employees while not wearing masks. Employees at this agency are asked to take on extra students to their already full caseloads instead of hiring additional employees to see these students. All upper management cares about is money. If you are looking for an employer who cares about and respects their employees, this is not the place. Multiple therapists leaving the agency at the same time is an indicator that change needs to happen before it will be a decent place of employment.
