    Pros

    You make your own schedule and get to work with awesome families.

    Cons

    The productivity expectation leaves you with a horrible balance of work and life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide boundaries of time for those over achieving workers that don't know how to let go. They will burn out.

    Pros

    Great culture, people, mission, and management. Good quality work is done.

    Cons

    Organization lacks a central focus. Though everyone is working for the great cause, it seems as though not everyone in the organization is on the same page and has their own agendas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop and communicate a central focus throughout the organization.

    I have been working at Easter Seals part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility with hours and the job itself is very rewarding. Working with kids is fun and you feel like you have a purpose.

    Cons

    Very few hours and supervision can be lacking. It seems like it is easy for employees to get lost in the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I definitely would say that they should try and manage cases better and give a more structured plan for treatment.

    Pros

    Collaborative approach. Great place to get training and to study at the same time.

    Cons

    Salaries could be better. There is a lot of turnover and that can be hard on clients. Just need to explain to clients that the industry is in flux and that you will support them through changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support staff in dealing with constant turnover and make sure clients and staff have the ongoing support they need. Lots of praise for those who put clients first.

    Communication! The more communication that occurs regarding the changes and growth of the company, the more understanding the staff will be about all of the constant changes.

    I worked at Easter Seals

    Pros

    Appears to have quite a bit of promotion from within. The company provides great services to the community

    Cons

    Very little positive feedback, animosity between departments, no opportunities for salary increase, very high turnover, very low level of employee morale, very little communication between departments/a lot of cloak and dagger-like communication. Overworked employees with very little compensation.
