I worked at The Arc - Middlesex County full-time (More than 3 years)
Some of the best reasons to work for this agency is that I met a lot of great people, peers, and connections over the time I spent here. I've learned a lot, and personally grew from the experience. The participants are great, and you will definitely see a lot of hard work from the DSP's, so that the participants can flourish.
Well for starters, the upper management is absolutely horrid! Most of them are self-righteous, and use their job title as a form of power. They look down upon the DSP"s (ya know, those small guys who do all the dirty work, and the reason why this agency is still in operation), and they expect that these employee's do twenty jobs at once. Heaven forbid you forget something, or make a mistake, you will get written up (What was I thinking for using the bathroom?!). But seriously, management is power hungry. There is no room for promotions (unless if you are a "yes man"), there are no raises, bonuses, and perks. They expect you to learn everything on your own. They talk down to you like you are child. Don't even bother making complaints, they will go unsolved... That is if you do not get fired for complaining. HR department is a waste of space. Seriously, the upper management needs a complete makeover. Furthermore, rules and policies are constantly being changed. It's all about nepotism. You could be written up for filling out a paper the wrong way, but some "Yes man" who makes the same mistake will get away with it.
Advice to Management
Stop changing policies to benefit yourself! Learn how to properly treat your employee's. Stop talking to them like children. A Thank you, although appreciated, does not pay the bills. $10.00/hr is grossly not enough for hat the DSP position entails, and prices everywhere are going up. Give raises!!! Your current and future employee's will appreciate the fact that they can have a little extra money. If you make these small changes, you will see a better turn out with your employee's, and they will stop leaving the agency. You lost many awesome employee's because you do not know how to treat them, and they are severely underpaid.
