    Pros

    Generous Paid Time Off policy

    Cons

    Be aware that Easter Seals affiliates operate independently, so what is true of one affiliate may not be true of another. Easter Seals Midwest has undergone many changes in recent years due to a merger between Life Skills and TouchPoint Autism Services which ultimately became the Missouri Easter Seals affiliate. Some employees haven't seen raises in many years yet are being asked to continue taking on more and more responsibility without any acknowledgment of their hard work. Work-life balance is okay for some employees and almost non-existent for others, depending on department. ESMO has adopted a "wellness" program which requires employees to jump through healthcare hoops in order to qualify for discounted health insurance. Senior management seems oblivious to the pervasive mood of discontent caused in large part by a punitive culture rather than one which rewards good work. The burnout is leading to high turnover throughout departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on growth and more on keeping the good employees you do have by providing competitive salaries, better insurance options and, most of all, a culture which encourages employees to excel by rewarding excellence rather than expecting employees to excel without recognizing their efforts in tangible and meaningful ways.

    I have been working at Easter Seals part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    steady hours (even when parents cancel, which happens a lot), supportive work environment, decent mileage reimbursement, never work early mornings, fairly straightforward/ easy to understand data sheets, generous vacation time and sick days

    Cons

    tons of driving, rarely see co-workers (can feel isolating), disorganized due to rapid growth (likely a temporary problem), staff supervising behavioral interventionists are not typically BCBA certified (in the bay area at least), can't move up in the company without a masters
