    I have been working at Easter Seals full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    An amazing organization that truly cares about people (both clients and employees). I have finally found a work culture of like minded folks who strive to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

    Cons

    There is some lack of communication at the local level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Monthly meetings involving all staff would go a long way in bridging the communication gap.

    Pros

    Love working with the kids, watching them learn and grow. Most of the people you work with are very kind and supportive.

    Cons

    Salaries are low 16-18 an hour with your college degree. Difficult to move up. Really bad hours. You may be available all day but the schedulers only give you a few hours. The hours are out of your control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a portion of salary if client cancels session and it is not the employee's fault.

    Pros

    leadership, purpose, people. Good work/life balance but the hours can be long and inconvenient. You get to really make a difference

    Cons

    pay is lower than most places and no real opportunity to move up to different higher paying positions. Those that are in those positions don't leave and the lower level jobs are all there is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide development opportunities
