Negative Management is hard to recover from
Staff Therapist (Former Employee) – Cheyenne, WY – August 24, 2017
My typical day was full of phone calls, seeing clients and meetings. At one point we figured out that 10% of our work week was spent in meetings. This seemed really unnecessary most of the time, and I felt there could be better uses of time. Supervision was also a problem. Depending on what was occurring within the agency, a therapist might have numerous meetings in a week or none at all. Often the supervision ended up with the supervisors venting frustrations about the work environment. The center went through numerous changes while I was there. Billing was a problem following a company wide change in electronic health record system. The company also slashed benefits which made the benefits, primarily health insurance, incredibly expensive. At the same time the company did away with reimbursements for trainings, paid training days, and reduced other benefits. All the while, increasing the demand on therapists and expectations of what they were required to do. At times these expectations were unrealistic at best. The staff are very dedicated to serving the individuals, which is the reason they stay. The staff work tirelessly to assist clients in any way possible.
some coworkers, excellent experience
benefits dramatically cut, low pay, negative work environment, unrealistic expectations
