    I have been working at Easter Seals

    Pros

    Generous vacation time and holidays.
    The organization still practices some nice employee activities like closing early for holidays and has a nice holiday party.

    Cons

    Retirement benefits are lacking compared to industry standards.
    Office moral is generally low and the staff do not interact much due to the "silo effect"

    I have been working at Easter Seals full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home employment. Working with kiddos. HR department.

    Cons

    Multiple changes. The game telephone is played with the delivery of critical clinical information. If you are interested in training it is impossible to penetrate the training team unless you have a solid relationship with the training director.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide incentives to staff. Increase pay for clinical team across the board. Upper management learn how the clinical decisions you make affect your staff.
