Case Manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 27, 2018
Rediscover does not pay their employees fairly. Management does not seem to care about staff and they turn a blind eye to problems. When an employee obtains a graduate degree they are not appropriately promoted or paid. I would not recommend working here to anyone.
QMHP (Former Employee) – kansas city area – September 11, 2018
the organization increasingly grew to be all about the numbers with less and less clarity. Became a popularity culture in various departments/locations--if we like you, you get this special treatment and if we don't like you, it can border on hostile work environment.
colleagues/co-workers often were pros
benefits; work life balance; ever changing expectations, systems, etc.; questionable ethics at highest leadership levels.
Counselor Tech (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – August 31, 2018
Although providing support for the women is a great feeling, the management on the other hand were deceitful and manipulative. You could volunteer for every needed shift but still but passed over and shunned for taking time off that by the way you earn. They need a NEW program director for Women and Children and other management needs to be replaced so that they actually care about the recovering addict instead of just the money.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – June 13, 2018
From withholding tampons to women in DV shelters to pushing clients into hotlines group homes (The Oaks) this place is the pits. Then, you get the supervisors that ask for shady favors for audits, and psychiatrists who compare their trans clients to dogs. If you want a good experience- find anywhere else to work. Literally, McDonalds.
Diagnostician/Therapist (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – March 2, 2018
It's all about numbers, Employees don't matter. Management shows no concern for self care and lacks support to their employees. I was hospitalized twice, not once did a manager reach out and ask how I was doing.
Counselor Technician (Former Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – January 23, 2018
Dont expect any support for the weekend night shift. Any problems that arise will interfere with your managers social life and patients have to wait until Monday for any type of resolution to their weekend problems.
Pay, relaxed environment, good for online college students who can bring their own laptop and study.
Lack of supervisory support, unstructured care plans for patients
Mental Health Technician (Former Employee) – Linwood – November 17, 2017
Women and Children’s Unit is toxic, cut throat environment. Management plays favorites and fuels the chaos and drama. They also use bullying, threats and intimidation. They have a supervisor with no degree or relevant experience, she got the position due to favoritism and her tendency to gossip about other staff. Many of the techs curse and disrespect clients. There are open drug sales in the parking lot and the residential house is like a middle school. Nothing about this place is good for employees or clients. Steer clear!
Licensed QMHP (Current Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – November 10, 2017
There are many opportunities to grow & advance in this agency. There are places that pay a lot better but this agency has a great reputation in the community, amazing doctors & does great things for individuals & families!
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Missouri – October 6, 2017
This job can be overwhelming. Do not get me wrong. The idea of helping a vulnerable population is important but this company will not take care of their employees. You have the opportunity for a slight raise. You also have the ability to receive a gift card based on performance. We are still underpaid with the driving and work we do for clients. We are underpaid when it comes to mileage for driving clients around. We deal with clients who have mental health issues and we are not able to carry a weapon yet we work with some unstable ad sometimes unpredictable clients. Up the pay and allow the employees to feel safe. The work for the clients is great. The programs and resources available are great, but take care of your employees. For advancement in the company, you have to have your masters which is not worth it for the slight pay jump. Not worth the loans to pay for school.
Oppurtunity to win a gift card monthly, coworkers are awesome, teamwork, flexibilty
Underpaid on salary and mileage. No discounts. Changes are made without the input of employees.
Toxic management, poor training and micromanaging supervisors
Counselor (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – April 14, 2017
The Women and Children’s Substance Abuse programs was the most toxic work environment I ever experienced. Staff were regularly threatened for not reaching productivity. That was nearly impossible because you had 10-15 hours of useless meetings per week. The problem supervisor openly held grudges and would set people she didn't like up for failure. She would regularly make us stay overtime for said meetings without compensation. Managers would regularly throw work on top of you without actually lending a hand themselves. If you had the audacity to bring this up then you weren't being a "team player." I could go on, but unless they remove ALL the managers and leadership of this unit, things will stay the same. It's a blessing I'm not there and that I landed in a much healthier, better paying, stable environment with bosses who actually care and try to help you.
Good place if there was a more caring program director
Counselor Tech (Former Employee) – 101 W Armour – September 16, 2016
This was a good place to work but program director was a bully Made you job harder than it really was The midtown office always wanted staff to snitch on each othet causing conflicts and would write you up for every little thing
Clinical Case Manager (Current Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – June 12, 2016
This is a great place to work for entry level individuals in the field of social work and behavioral health. There is an opportunity to learn a great deal, the case management position is flexible and allows for personal issues to be properly addressed.
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Lee's Summit, MO – April 21, 2016
ReDiscover is like one big family. Everyone takes care of each other. Managers listen, supervisors take advice and listen. They have rules but are also willing to work with you when things come up. Most enjoyable part is seeing how ReDiscover makes a difference in lives. Seeing the clients and getting to know them is the best part. The hardest part is when the clients get upset. As the front lines (the receptionist) we get to see what goes on first. You definitely stay busy and there is always something to do. You must have a heart in helping people and putting forth more effort than other jobs. This is a non-profit organization and you got to have your heart in it. It's one of the most rewarding jobs I have had.
