    Pros

    It has a lot of potential to be a great provider of IDD services. There are many who would be great mentors if they had such a program

    Cons

    Employee morale is very low and it does not seem to be a concern for upper management. Too many unprofessional people in lower management positions. Not much is communicated down the pipeline when changes occur.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee morale. Consider a mentoring program for entry level and lower level managers

    Pros

    Very enjoyable working with clients that need assistance.

    Cons

    Management at my branch lacks knowledge of the clients, the overall scope of what needs to be done and has no morals.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the management.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    A lot of dedicated employees/clinicians
    Strong upper management team
    Great place to learn and "get your feet wet" as a therapist
    There is always work available and the agency is always expanding

    Cons

    Everyone is overworked (especially supervisors)
    Low pay
    Constant changes to processes being made without proper training/follow-through
    Low morale in the work environment
    Poor communication between upper management and direct care staff
    Lots of turn-over

    Advice to Management

    Better compensating and communication between management and staff may lead to better retention.

    Pros

    Starting pay is decent for the area. Easy interview process

    Cons

    Very little support for new employees. I felt thrown into the job and was fortunate to have been with a client in a classroom where the teachers (not employed by NHS) were very helpful and supportive. Hired as fee-for-service employee and not able to get more hours if there was a school closing or family cancellation made for difficult budget planning

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees have ALL trainings before assigning them to clients.

    Freedom to choose activities and curriculum for clients

    Cons

    Emphasis on productivity and numbers

    Find a more humane approach for motivating employees than with threatening emails

    Pros

    Meeting so many beautiful intellectual people. The relationships and networking opportunities that you form.

    Cons

    Challenges you physically, emotionally & mentally.

    Advice to Management

    Switching positions with staff on occasion to see another perspective and view of the company and position.
