    Everyone is very friendly, it's a positive atmosphere to work in. The staff is there because they want to be there for the children they care for.

    Cons

    Pros

    Flexibility was great and pay was always on time. Convenient locations as well.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, inadequate policy and procedures and nepotism exist in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be adequately trained in all areas and pay should be more for amount of work that is done.

    Pros

    Fun working with families and children

    Cons

    Company treats interventionists as if they are disposable. Policy changes happen often that leave employees confused. Communication is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting the interventionist hours and pay. Schedulers are paid more then degreed therapists.

    Pros

    The consumers-seeing them improve their lives with my support has been amazing.

    Cons

    All political-if you aren't in with the right crowd, you will be targeted and it will be made difficult for you to continue to work there. Pay is low-barely enough to live on. Management is not accommodating nor understanding. Must kiss the right rump to get promoted-not merit or education based. Hours are difficult and goals for face to face are impossible unless you donate time to the company. Organization preaches positive reinforcement yet there is none for their employees. Poor communication and difficult management. Very sad for what could be a leader in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Read these reviews and take them to heart. There are large internal problems brewing and good employees are leaving due to them.

    Pros

    Very few. Don't work here unless you really need a job.

    Cons

    Apathetic management, promoting unqualified people to leadership positions, no staff development, few advancement routes, low end pay for a Denver Metro Area non-profit, inconsistent work schedules, promises from management infrequently have any follow through.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership you have is very behind the times. Consider adding fresh blood.
