Program Director (Current Employee) - Little Rock, AR - October 18, 2019
When the demands of the position called me to work long hours, I’m always allowed to take extra time off to recharge. When they say that it’s a Christ centered environment, they made it. God first, Family second, job is third. This order of things make sure that all of us come to work refreshed and ready to go. I felt very supported by management and the team. It’s a very tough client base so we have to take care of each other internally
Path is a place to be. And is a place to work as well. Because they do care about the individual that they support
HUMAN SERVICE ASSISTANT| PEOPLE ACTING TO HELP (Current Employee) - Castor Avenue PA - August 29, 2019
Path is a good place to work. But some of supervisor and manager makes it very hard. Because there's no communication Between staff and the supervisor. The communication with some of there supervises is very poor. And some of a managers don't know how to talk to people. So that make it difficult to communicate with them.

Great mission but staff need to hustle for coverage.
Senior Program Officer (Former Employee) - Seattle, WA - June 12, 2019
PATH has a great mission and offers opportunities to learn new skills and move between teams and departments. However, projects are grant funded so coverage can be an issue between grants. Employees need to hustle to find new opportunities as management and HR do not offer much assistance. It is also a fairly flat organization making it difficult to get promotions.
Residential Counselor (Current Employee) - Philadelphia, PA - June 11, 2019
Worked here for 5 years. There’s no room for growth and the pay is low. You have to work triple time to get a good check! Sometimes you feel like the management doesn’t appreciate you. They want you to cook, clean and go out with the individuals all the time. It was a good job at first but it has grew to annoy me now.
Case Manager (Former Employee) - Madison, CA - May 13, 2019
Management is so incompetent. This company alters time cards, so we don't get paid overtime. The managers barely have a HS diploma. They lie about funds and grants. This company does not care about clients. The managers do not know anything about what is going on in the program. People on the night team sleep. People on the day team leave early and these individuals are embezzling money. When concerns are brought to HR, tescia does nothing about it, this is why this company is sued all the time.
HRIS Analyst (Former Employee) - Seattle, WA - April 12, 2019
PATH will probably be my favorite employer in my entire career. The culture is very laid-back with flexible work arrangements, and there are really wonderful people there.
I can't speak for all managers, but my manager gave me assignments I would enjoy and let me forge my own career path. She also procured money for me to take classes in addition to the many classes that all PATH employees can access for free.
Most importantly, PATH has a terrific mission of accelerating the innovation and development of health technologies to reduce inequities, particularly for women and children in the poorest parts of the world. Knowing this, I never felt bored, bitter, or wasteful about spending time working for PATH.
mission, culture, benefits
for certain roles, you could make more money in the private sector
Manager of Core User Applications (Former Employee) - Seattle, WA - February 10, 2019
I worked at PATH for 8 years and it was a great place to work. Employees are treated well and work in a really pleasant, open environment. I worked in IT so my experience varies from just about everyone else's outside of IT. I got a chance to work with great people and learn a lot, but your mileage may vary. I was lucky to have great managers my entire time there. I eventually left PATH because I had to relocate to Oregon.
Bureaucratic, stifling toward career growth, and slow to adjust to new funding models
Senior Program Assistant (Current Employee) - Seattle, WA - January 8, 2019
Unfortunately slow to adapt to new global funding models. After being here for 5 years, I've seen too many talented people let go due to poor management and lack of planning.
Hard to advance within the bureaucratic systems, even when you have a manager in your corner. A workplace that does not value growth or mentorship for more early in career employees.
