Integral Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
In mathematics, an integral assigns numbers to functions in a way that can describe displacement, area, volume, and other concepts that arise by combining infinitesimal data. Integration is one of the two main operations of calculus; its inverse operation, differentiation, is the other. Given a function f of a real variable x and an interval [a, b] of the real line, the definite integral
QIDP/Case Manager (Former Employee) says"A typical day consists of too much travel and unrealistic amounts of phone calls and documentation. I didn't learn anything from working there and there is virtually no room for growth unless you are in the "in crowd". Management is poor, unsupportive of growth, and they are quick to throw you under the bus if something goes wrong. The workplace culture is non-existent. You barely see any coworkers and there are no icebreakers or events to foster team spirit. The hardest part of the job is constantly feeling overwhelmed with the unrealistic amounts of work thrown at you with unsupportive and non-understanding management who are quick to point fingers if things aren't done on time even if your caseload has some serious issues going on. There really wasn't anything enjoyable about this job. Cons: unrealistice amount of work, constant travel, high caseloads, unsupportive management, good ol boy style of promoting, negative morale, unhelpful human resources"
IDD (Former Employee) says"Management is uptight, clique-ish. Got to get in with the right people in order to succeed. Micromanagers. This place will suck you dry. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting off of work, the worst part was getting to work."
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) says"When I first started working with the company everything was great. after 6month I experience some racial comments by one of the therapist. The management wrote a report and "sent it to HR". after that I was picked on and lied on by management, They did everything they could to let me go. Cons: the managers are horrible people"
Crisis Counselor (Former Employee) says"If you have the option not to work here...then don’t waste your time and jeapordize your license. I was singled out and reprimanded while other employees did the same thing with no consequences, management was very inappropriate (mocking clients, foul language, making rules up as they go), no security staff while working over night/early mornings around dangerous clients. HR is a joke and only operates with red tape. Understaffed, overworked, poor management, Integrally Care does not care about their employees. They also employ two documented sexual offenders. Cons: Management, policies and procedures, lack of support, favoritism"
IDD Service Coordinator (Former Employee) says"My experience was absolutely horrible. The management style was very much sink or swim. Most supervisors were very young, inexperienced, and less than helpful. Production percentage was all that mattered at Integral Care. The lack of knowledge amongst staff regarding Developmental Disabilities was alarming."
Network & Operations Manager (Former Employee) says"This is not a place I would recommend. They will not hire sufficient staff to support their environment. They have about 4 technical staff that supports over 900 end users. They have some application support folks who do not support the application. Those 4 technical resources are expected to do that. Cons: Not enough care goes into IT services"
Tobacco Cessation Service Coordinator (Former Employee) says"The agency runs with staggering inefficiency. Prolonged meetings, poor software, and limited supervision. Cons: Pay, hours, training, autonomy"
Administrative Supervisor (Former Employee) says"Upper management thrives looking down on employees. Very little training in regards to what your job actually does. Does not respect allowing breaks and letting the employee have a lunch uniterputed. Promotion is not based on merit but who knows who in the company Cons: Support from management, real training"
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) says"I worked for Integral Care as a Service Coordinator (later changed to Habilitation Coordinator) for several years. I loved my coworkers, my consumers, and the relationships I built with each of them. That being said- that- is the only thing good about this job. Cons: Unsupportive-manipulative-passive aggressive management, PASRR rules that don't make sense, Overload of documentation, Unrealistic Expectation, The program is not person centered for our consumers"
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) says"This Place is not stable, it is not a secure Job. Cons: No Job Security. The Chief Financial Officer/CFO is extremely Autistic."
LPHA (Former Employee) says"There were blatant inconsistencies in expectations of staff (I.e. Discipline given to one but not other for identical error), management was routinely lacking in their ability to set the example of the work ethic they demanded from staff. The hostility, condescension and total disrespect was shocking. Many front line staff are a joy to work with! Steer clear of working for MCOT or EMCOT if you want expert training and guidance as a new clinician or autonomy and support as an experienced mental health professional. Cons: United Healthcare insurance is sub-par, very little hands-on training from Team Lead or Program Manager, punitive management style"
Program Manager (Former Employee) says"On a typical day, there is no time in which to pause and enjoy a moment of rest. I worked 55 to 60 hours a week and always ate lunch at my desk. There was never a chance to catch up. The crisis division is especially toxic. If you like working in an environment of fear where your best efforts go unrecognized this job is for you. Cons: Impossible productivity standards, HR acts as a puppet to upper management."
Supervisor (Current Employee) says"The first thing to mention here is the high turnover that occurs with this agency. As social workers, one would expect to carry a high caseload and help individuals who cannot help themselves. With this stressful kind of work, it would be expected that these workers receive competitive compensation. This agency not only ignores the turnover, which is incredibly costly, not to mention the time that is taken out of a supervisors schedule to constantly be training and covering caseloads, but does nothing as far as incentive's or promotions to keep people interested in staying with the agency. Cons: poor management, little compensation, poor communication"
Service Coordinator (Former Employee) says"It’s ok. But working for the state is way better they have favoritism and managers don’t have a clue on what they managing. Pay is ok benefits are ok."
HCS - IDD services (Former Employee) says"Your experience at this agency is highly dependent on your position and which department/unit you are in. I can only speak to HCS service coordination. First and foremost, this is a numbers job. It is_all_about billable contacts. Upper management equates a high number of billable contacts with quality of service and truly believes it is possible to do right by 40-43 high-need individuals residing throughout the community while making your "numbers." A caseload of 30 would be manageable, a caseload of 40+ is not. Cons: Numbers, micromanagement, high caseload"
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) says"CFS Cons: no cons"
LPHA III (Former Employee) says"This company gave expectations in the interviews but as soon as the job started the expectations were changed and expected you to learn the job faster. When asked for help, little to zero guidance was given to help understand the job better. Supervisor was unprofessional w/ many members of the team."
Mental healthcare (Former Employee) says"The agency is decent to start at if you are new and needing hours. That said its not a place to learn genuinely good clinical care and only good for newbies as long as you don't presume that what you see is reflective off how things ought to be. The politics and the bureaucracy is suffocating. Cons: Disconnected upper management, Terrible middle management, Low morale, Rigid and punitive, They really dont value employee retention, its only about whats on paper and the image they protray, Period."
Registered Nurse II (Current Employee) says"Management do not understand a nurse's scope of practice. Hard to work after agency nurses that do not have access to AZ. Turnover rate is extremely high. Cons: Social work model / not medical"
Rehabilitation Specialist (Current Employee) says"Poor communication between teams, lack of support between management, continuous issues with conflicting, constantly changing ideas."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Integral Group full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Primarily for the offices on the West Coast, especially Oakland. The three big ones here are: financial mismanagement, project mismanagement, and lack of accountability. Financial mismanagement: No one monitors hours spent on a project until it’s way too late. Write-downs are common. This is across offices. Project mismanagement: There is no quality control on projects and things are sent out the door without any senior oversight leading to massive problems later. I’ve heard of other companies making very good margins on projects compared to IG, but even with relatively beefy fees, projects often just break even or worse. All the responsibility for project execution is left to junior engineers who have, in turn, left in droves. Most of the great minds who were there went I started have left long ago. Over the time I was there, over 100 people have gone or come and gone. Lack of accountability: Senior management sees their only role to be ‘thought leaders’. Even when senior people tank projects, there are no repercussions. The CEO was recently changed, but many people received very cushy jobs/titles in exchange for a lot of boot-licking, as opposed to providing value, although what is valued at IG is big talk. Accountability and diligence has no place. The company had long suffered from a huge lack of focus. Ideas are brought to the table, after a few weeks those ideas are tossed out and things go back to how they were."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Integral Group full-time Cons: The downsides by far is the leadership...or lack of. There are individuals that are great engineers but are terrible in management of others. This is nondiscriminatory and occurs in every team at Integral Group. In electrical, mechanical and plumbing there are leaders that are absent, moral killers, antagonistic and irresponsible. There are obvious signs of toxic leaderships that make junior engineers reluctant to ask for help, this all happening within weeks of joining. There are Associates that "grandfathered" in to their positions simply because of their length of tenure and not of their merit. The old adage of, "If it's not broke don't fix it." has been long thrown out the window of 427 13th Street but yet everything is still broken and not going to be fixed anytime soon. I feel for the younger engineers that are hopeful and idealistic at this company."
Former Employee - Designer says"I worked at Integral Group full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Extensive micro management I see great people working here for years but never got promoted Extremely cost sensitive Below industry average pay Manager plays favorites Need to record what time you start and stop working on each project on time sheet"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Integral Group full-time for more than 3 years Cons: trump like leadership - all bluster and no follow through"
Engineer says"I have been working at Integral Group for less than a year Cons: Raises below inflation for the entire office consistently. Very small bonuses. Not a relaxed work environment, the busy times are stressful and you are asked to work heavy overtime without being paid for it. The slow times are still not relaxed. Not a good place to learn or practice sustainability unless you are in the energy modeling group. Takes on projects that include fast food and small TI work that have no sustainability aspect. This is majority the work. Rarely providing innovative ways to save energy other than what is code mandated or the bare minimum to meet LEED requirements."
says"I have been working at Integral Group Cons: horrendous conditions. Total sweatshop. no transparency. They are losing money hand over fist and blaming it on employees while asking them to work harder and harder"
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I have been working at Integral Group full-time Cons: They call themselves "scrappy" - more like unprofessional and disorganized. The disconnect between management and employees affect everyday operations to the point of disfunction. There are not enough support staff to keep the giant ship afloat, furthering the operations issues. Each office functions completely independent of one another and does not communicate effectively. When employees speak up for themselves, they shut them down and make them feel terrible about themselves if they disagree with what they're being challenged on. Employees do not get the true mentorship and leadership they need to succeed in their jobs."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Integral Group full-time Cons: Horrible Management, bad pay compared to industry standards, watched one ridiculous woman cry on multiple occasions (because her work load was "too large"). Mindless HR department complete with questionable business practices. No work life balance- people have been rumored to sleep in the "meditation room" because of pulling such late nights. the list goes on..."
Former Employee - Associate Principal says"I worked at Integral Group full-time for more than 3 years Cons: If you work in the 'sustainability' realm in this office, you may have to deal with certain toxic managerial characters. Failed architects, failed technicians, failed politicians wannabe who soon realised they can only make a living from what they invented and called 'sustainability'. They may impress you with name-dropping lists of titles, qualifications, degrees from prestigious universities, 'green guru', hobnobbing with starchitects, grandiose masterplans etc. Look carefully! What they're best at is storytelling, self-congratulatory stories about themselves and especially their achievements, pondering over colorful images and their own appearances to lure listeners. Watch carefully! The truth may be right there in their fat paychecks and their bellies."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Integral Group full-time for more than a year Cons: Success is 100% luck at this firm. It all depends on who you are working with. Poor management. Poor compensation packages, extremely high expectations. A lot of talking, 0 practice. show-off beats hard work."
