    Benefits are good, staff recognition is ample (free movie tickets, gift cards, etc), ability to work at different facilities within the agency

    Pay more attention to developing your current staff instead of treating them as disposable goods.

    I have been working at Bay Cove Human Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    excellent staff, leaders in the field, strong approach to client services, offers comprehensive services to those with disabilities, flexibility, room to move laterally in the company, encourages community involvement, real commitment to mission statement

    Cons

    out of touch with day to day services provided, state set limits on pay, lack of diversity in management, difficult to maintain quality of service when programs are insufficiently staffed to do more than the basics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend more time talking to direct service employees to understand the challenges that they face, work with the state to increase direct care pay,

    Former Employee - Social Worker in Boston, MA
    Former Employee - Social Worker in Boston, MA

    I worked at Bay Cove Human Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People who work there are pretty nice. Easy to get a job here. The company really serves an under-served population. certainly can do some good in society there. If you are a social worker, there is room for growth. They will find jobs for those they like, even when programs close. You can feel good about the work you do.

    Cons

    No raises, small to no bonuses, insurance premiums are through-the-roof expensive (and going up), Their pay is pretty poor all around, absolutely no room for growth for anyone who isnt a social worker, it feels like you have 15 supervisors but nobody knows what's going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is what it is. If you cant pay people, they wont stay. Safety should be a bigger concern. You have WAY too many middle-management positions. It feels like their are people in many of these positions who job is being done by someone else.

    Terrible Agency to work for

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Bay Cove Human Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I don't seem to have anything positive to say about this Agency as most of the times it misrepresents itself to employees who only discover its true colores after they are hired.

    Cons

    Their emergency policy is one that needs to be reviewed as they show not the slightest concern about the safety of their employees. Bay Cove does not shut down even when the Governor declares a state of emrgency and advises all non-essential employees to stay home. With Bay Cove you have to come in or if you decide to stay home you use your vacation time. Employees were forced to go in during Hurricane Sandy but no work was done as there were no clients and employees spent most of the time expressing their frustration and anger. Their salaries are nothing but peanuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect and care about their safety. Boost employee morale instead of completely destroying it.

    Great co-workers, great mid-level managers and flexible.

    I worked at Bay Cove Human Services

    Pros

    My co-workers and mid-level managers are a pleasure to work with. They make an effort to respect independence while encouraging teamwork.

    Cons

    I think, like many social service non-profits, the pay could be better as well as training opportunities. There is a greater need for diversity in management, too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase diversity in managerial roles. I think more opportunities for training would be beneficial for professional development and increase retention.

    I worked at Bay Cove Human Services

    Pros

    Good salary and medical benefits, management was poor. Great overall experience for starting analyst, would recommend to work here.

    Cons

    Management was poor, long work hours and clients were hard to contact due to difficult management problems. People were hard to work with as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give better hours and better management,

    Mismanaged branch or Bay Cove

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Bay Cove Human Services

    Pros

    It is an agency that strives to help others. They provide services for those suffering from mental health issues, aging, addiction and homelessness.

    Cons

    Each division of Bay Cove is run independently. The program where I work, Career Advancement Resources (CAR), is very poorly managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more realistic in what is expected from employees. Being understaffed is not an excuse to treat employees poorly.
