Pros

Abundance of hours, Union benefit, Mandation pay (double pay), Holidays, Paid Time Off, Great CoWorkers, Learn skills that are invaluable outside of work as far as caregiving, first aid, etc

Cons

Long hours, usually sites are shorthanded, Turnover rate is very high (the job is explained well in training, but you don't get the full effect until your floor training), Being new on the job and inexperienced makes it hard on you your first few months

Advice to Management

Better record keeping, No more passing the buck...pick certain people to delegate duties to and follow through.

    Pros

    -Most people who work for the company are genuinely nice, caring people and are pleasant to work with.
    -Most clients are just as nice and are fun to get to know.
    -It's a job.

    Cons

    -Nepotism in hiring, nepotism in scheduling, nepotism in payroll, nepotism in treatment of employees.
    -Large corporate structure guarantees that no matter what your grievance, no one will care. Unless an outside agency (i.e. Office of Recipient Rights) gets involved.
    -Employees haven't received raises in over five years; some recently received an insulting $60 check bearing the message, "Thanks for all you do."
    -Direct care staff are expected to accept the same near-minimum wage regardless of how much extra work is expected of them; homes with total care clients (those that are dependent on staff for all activities of daily living) are paid the same as those with as few as one or two clients who require the most minimal of assistance (such as cleaning)
    -Refusal to offer benefits to same-sex spouses (specifically targets "spouses under federal, not state law" in benefits materials)

    Advice to Management

    -"It is what it is" is existentialism, not a philosophy for interpersonal relations.
    -Give some respect to your employees; a high turnover rate doesn't foster caring relationships between staff and clients, it indicates rather that your stock value is your primary concern.
    -Don't pretend to care about your employees when you don't respect them enough to treat them equally.
