    Pros

    We have some of the best customers. They inspire me daily.

    Cons

    It is sad when a rough economy or discrimination prevent people with disabilities from reaching their employment goals.

    Advice to Management

    We need to set realistic goals when our population and economy changes.

  2. Really great! I have a boss who doesn't personalize issues and leads well.

    Pros

    I feel like I am treated like a human being

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets monotonous with the paperwork even though we are "paperless".

    Pros

    You have a lot of independence, not a lot of micro management. This agency is in a position which allows you to Really help people. There is usually opportunities for training and some opportunity for travel.

    Cons

    Advancement is often based more on politics than on job performance. One does not receive much support from management, neither locally or from central office.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time getting to know your local office staff, they get the job done, then local management gets the credit.

    Pros

    Mission is a great one to believe in - enabling those with disabilities to become employable and independent.

    Cons

    All managers are not created equal - some engage in favoritism and gossip. Others are encouraging, fair, and willing to help develop their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as important stakeholders much as you would clients and taxpayers. Look for ways to grow all employees and not just who you think will get you recognition.

  6. Great pay, but work experience depends on your client.

    I worked at Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Rehabilitative Services

    Pros

    I had a unique experience in that i was contracted out to tutor a disabled man in IT. He used money from a grant to pay me. It was $20 an hour for a few hours a week while i was in college, more than twice what other college students are usually paid.

    Cons

    Their payment system is ludicrous. You have to hassle them to get your paycheck because they have ridiculous amounts of paperwork you have to fill out before you can get it. Make sure you finish your paperwork and keep a log of your hours and always remain in contact with them about your paycheck. They are nice about it, but they are overworked.

    Advice to Management

    I never engaged senior management, but i would say market your services more, you have a great opportunity for college kids to work and you can probably get some highly qualified people to work for you if you just advertise a little

  7. A great place to work
