Pros

Rewarding job where you feel like you are making a difference Job is different everyday Great benefits Union makes your job pretty secure OT is always available and is time and a half PTO: Vacation, Sick, and Personal time after 3 months

Cons

Can be mandated Work weekends, holidays Not paid as high as you should be for the work you do One 30 cent raise after 6 months and than no more raises No way to advance Drama in houses amongst staff Terrible communication between management and employees Not trained well enough to do the job Anyone is hired Can be moved from your house to another house you dont work in based on need

Advice to Management

Company needs to be more organized, Management has no idea whats going on and makes decisions and doesn't tell the parents or the staff working. Better pay is definitely needed.

    Pros

    The clients definitely need qualified professionals to meet their goals and building a professional relationship is worth following through to see progress.

    Cons

    Salary is not comeasurate for qualified professionals and training is handed by word of mouth with little mentoring. Some people can teach and some can do; This organization needs better instructors.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate better staff training with qualified in house instructors and mentoring for new employees; Offer competitive hourly salaries for qualified professionals and train on how to write a 30 page detailed reports in 2 hours by non clerk typists (including paid time for all rewrites due to company changes or missing data that was never provided). This practice exploits your qualified staff by not paying for all hours they put into the work and this abuse explains why you have high turnover. There is a point where dedication becomes abusive from a human resource employer no matter how dedicated the person is to the population served.


  2. Love the work but cant stand what management gets away with

    Pros

    Residents are what keeps you going....if you love what you do.

    Cons

    Management is insane at all levels. Bad ethics. Game playing. Clicks. Theres an inner circle and an outer circle. This is not all sites in Western Pa...I can only speak for what I experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and practice what NHS values are suppose to be. Take a good look at yourselves. Unethical behavior is shameful.
