    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!

    Pros

    Great way to have face-to-face interactions with people with disabilities.

    Cons

    Working conditions are intense (long hours, low pay, up to 12 days straight w/o day off) so most camp staff come from UK/abroad. Camp supervisor extremely unprofessional and fired live-in, on-site nurse without any prior notice (basically called a taxi and told her she had to leave the premises immediately).

    Advice to Management

    Just because this isn't a traditional work site doesn't mean you shouldn't have professional/ethical standards!

    Pros

    Supportive team environment, benefits are great, work is challenging yet fulfilling.

    Cons

    ESBA has gotten bigger and seems to have shifted focus from the clients to the finances, less communication between BI's and upper management, and even upper management and clientele.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to be mindful of your clients and employees, listen to their needs and be communicative and transparent!

    Pros

    If you are good with people that need help, and you are kind and patient, you can accomplish a lot with your life.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between the layers of staff can really foul things up and create dangerous situations

    Advice to Management

    Be real. Get out and meet the clients and the workers. Be fair with raises, and don't hog all the money for yourselves.

    Pros

    There is honestly nothing to put here. Anything that can be considered positive is irrelevant die to the cons.

    Cons

    Upper management is out of touch and passes the buck. ESNJ is a very top heavy agencywork no ethical boundaries. BHS residential directors are robots and do not have 1 original idea on how to manage. The AVP's for BHS are puppets with no ability or experience. The vice president is clueless to how his decision to allow directors that have not worked anywhere else to function independently effects esnj consumers. If you work here you will be fired. If you send your family member here to live they will be treated unethically.

    Advice to Management

    This is a lost cause.
