    Pros

    Rewarding work, convenient hours for those working and going to school simultaneously, same pay for administrative tasks done at home, offer 20% off a masters at national university and educational reimbursement pay

    Cons

    High energy job, BIs tend to be disregarded, parents are usually great but because ESSC requires a co-pay for each session they have high expectations

    Advice to Management

    Respond quickly to BIs having issues with their working environment (allergies to animals, 40 minute drives from home, etc.)

    Pros

    You can pretty much get as many hours as you need as long as you are a valued employee and do your work well.

    Cons

    The pay isn't remarkable and getting a day off when you're sick or need a personal is a huge challenge.

    Pros

    The people. Good flexibility. Can be very Fun. Helping others. Always interesting. Trained well. Learn new skills and knowledge everyday. Good connections. Making a difference.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Time consuming. You aren't understood or supported well by higher ranks. Wear and tear on your personal vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    Support your DSPs and programs. We are compensated terribly for the work and dedication that we provide and not supported through it. I could work as a cashier doing easier things and still make more money.

    Pros

    The people, all of the employees were very nice, helpful.

    Cons

    None of the management were very inspirational, motivators, or even nice. The whole experience seemed fake and tiring. No one should think about work, and completely hate it. Along with the experience, the workload was excessive, things that could be delegated and improved to tackle efficiency, were accepted, but completely disregarded. Overall hated working there.

    Advice to Management

    You are management! Yes social work is hard, overworked, underpaid, and purely for the compassionate, but your top level management make 4x as much as the employees that do the supporting and manual labor. Please improve that!
