    Cons

    Lack of training; Orientation and trainings were disorganized and some employees were not professional; Lack of appreciation from higher staff; Behavioral problems among clients are not addressed like they should - extremely outdated ISPs; No lunch break

    Advice to Management

    Make sure employees are prepared when presenting at orientation - gives the company a bad feel from the start; Show staff that you appreciate them more often; Do not talk down to staff members

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management very poor, very clear interpersonal conflict between my program director and clinical director, lack of clear clinical leadership.

    Advice to Management

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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.
