I worked at Baker Victory Services full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The residents are fun to work with (you'd hate to leave them) and the staff are mostly fine and dedicated. House managers are all right, some are nice and hardworking.

Cons

The people who run the agency should be removed and replaced. They are clueless about handling and managing staff and making them feel wanted and needed (the "Sanctuary Model" notwithstanding, it is merely feel-good propaganda.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To upper management (ranking higher that program Coordinators). Either resign or get back into direct care for a while to see what the agency is about. You are too removed from the real work of the staff.

    I have been working at Baker Victory Services full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great experience at the direct care level. Was a great organization under the previous CEO. They preach open communication but are not prepared to follow up when concerns are brought forward.

    Cons

    Some of the leaders lack integrity. Need to watch your back. Honesty & integrity don't play well here. It's all about who you know, and who you can manipulate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What comes around go's around.
