    Pros

    Great starting pay and regular pay increases Great benefits including retirement contributions, paid time off, health, dental and vision insurances plus discounts on goods/services/products from local/regional/national businesses

    Cons

    Process/procedure decisions made with very little worker input considered Clientele has a habit of being very needy, lazy, quick to blame other people/factors/circumstances, waiting until the last minute, expecting immediate results Overall, the amount of stress, hassle and headache created by the bureaucracy of the organization, its upper management and its clientele was not worth the pay and benefits received.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Dane County, WI part-time

    Pros

    Longevity of employees and development of trusting, respectful relationships with residents. The staff truly do care about the residents. New facility with a large space for group activities (i.e., bingo, musical events, art classes).

    Cons

    Some employees have been there too long and have become complacent in just putting in their 8hrs. Activities offered to residents have become stale - would benefit from surveying residents to see what they would like to see more of and perhaps attending conferences or seminars on successfully engaging residents in meaningful activities. Lots of animosity between employees in this department - easily detected by newbies and outsiders.

    Advice to Management

    Create a team-centered atmosphere; rotate unit to familiarize residents and staff with one another and to avoid complacency; have an open discussion in a safe space for everyone to voice their suggestions and successes/shortcomings of the department.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, with a great work atmosphere, you are given the opportunity to make the job what you want to make it.

    Cons

    As a union position there are some very unmotivated workers that have moved themselves into position of some power, and they create hurdles, majority of the staff is great though
