    Pros

    Rewarding and excellent working with disabled clients. I had much experience with both adults and disabled children.

    Cons

    Working with staff was difficult and did not want to continue after given an ultimatum. They did not know I was a DAV and former instructor for AT&T.

    Advice to Management

    Employers need to establish classes involving people skills and teamwork. I did very well during my Navy days.

    Pros

    Good learning experience for case management and gaining social service experience. Super great job if you like working with children & families.
    The admin tries to do fun things to keep morale high such as parties for holidays and cake once a month for birthdays. The manager was accommodating if one needed to take time away for their child being sick or an illness.
    BCBS insurance

    Cons

    There are about 25 others with your same job position and there is no room for growth and those above are only the manager and assistant program manager, so stuck at the same job with the same salary until you go elsewhere.
    There are some unhappy people working there and the management lets them get away with bad attitudes and bad behavior because of their time spent there.
    The job involves home visits into many chicago neighborhoods, so it takes a toll on your car, energy, and safety.

    Pros

    Given a lot of autonomy and responsibility. A great place to learn the industry and grow skils in non-profit management and direct care.

    Cons

    Because the admin rate is so low, they do not invest in personnel. The turnover rate is outrageous, and a lot of time is spent training new hires who are almost always entry level.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet and increase the admin rate. Invest in your employees. Give them room to grow. Be more discerning with your new hires.

    Pros

    Starting salary, ongoing training, love my schedule, full time benefits plus edu assistance.

    Cons

    Some tough cases : biting, scratching, hitting, spitting, and lots of driving

    Advice to Management

    Chain of command is incredibly lengthy. Personal manager, plus training team, plus case managers, and clinical teams...Exactly who is in charge here? TOO many leaders.
