Corporate positions grossly overpaid. Direct care positions grossly underpaid.
Corporate (Former Employee) – Headquarters – July 2, 2018
Telecare is a poorly managed company that grossly overcompensates corporate employees which results in those top managers doing whatever the company requires since they do not want to lose their fat compensation packages. The majority of the employees, the direct care providers and the lower level administrators (Clinical Directors and Program Managers) are grossly underpaid and overworked. The services users (consumers, residents, clients, patients) are the biggest losers. Contracts using county, state, federal, and municipal funds should NOT be awarded to for-profit organizations - too much of the funding goes to the corporate employees and top-level staff and their outrageous travel expenses and to the company profit that could be going directly to the services users. At the program level there are many good employees doing great work but they don't last long due to the low pay and stressful working conditions resulting in high turnover. Things are the worst in California. Telecare programs in Oregon and Washington are somewhat better and obtain better reviews there. Stay away from this company! You will fare better employed at a county or state organization.
Direct care providers at the program level are often dedicated but don't last long.
Profit and stature driven CEO, poor workplace culture at most locations (particularly corporate headquarters), unsafe conditions for both residents and staff at most residential facilities, long hours and low pay for most staff, poor communication practices, company has poor values.
