Pros

Staff work well together. Decent benefits package.

Cons

-TILL promotes itself as an innovative human services agency but I have seen nothing innovative about it in all the time I have spent working there. In reality, TILL suffers from a common ailment in the human services industry, it has gotten way too comfortable with "entitlements" that it receives from the state and federal governments. When the state cuts entitlements everyone will suffer from the staff to the clients.

-Training is not provided to the managers of the day hab sites. The director hires these people and shadows them for a week and then leaves them out to dry. This is not an approach conducive to a healthy environment for the clients or the staff because eventually some managers get so stressed that they begin taking it out on the staff by being demeaning and talking down to them. An example of the lack of training is the fact that managers now require "budget meetings" with a book keeper. In the past managers have been able to do this job themselves and then submit it to the director. But now, due to lack of training in budgeting the book keeper has to sit with managers and tabulate the receipts with them. Managers are paranoid about spending any money and because of this the clients lose out on things that could be beneficial to them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

TILL management has to wake up and realize that the entitlements will be cut severely in the coming years due to issues with the economy. TILL can do this by creating truly innovative programming which generates revenue and puts clients to work at the best of their ability.

The director needs to provide regular training for the managers. This will assure quality programming and in turn happier staff and happier clients.

Encourage ideas for micro business from staff with generated revenue going back to both the staff and the clients.

    Pros

    The clients are fantastic, the benefits are fair, and the staff works well for the good of the clients, and some do well with team work.

    Cons

    Management can be demeaning and unprofessional, often ending meetings with the line "your excused". Often you are spoken to in front of other staff and clients in a tone of voice that is unacceptable. Chiding staff in the presence of the other staff is unacceptable. A recent experience with a manager was as follows; she misplaced her cell phone, she processed to call the police, kept everyone well past their clock out time. The phone was found, she offered no apologies for the way she talked to people. Also, the the same manager appears to have a confidence issue, often needing someone to back her up. never do they meet with you individually. Often including parties that have nothing to do with the situation, having little knowledge. When meeting you are spoken to in such a way, that words like be quiet, I do not want to hear it, not giving the employee a chance to defend themselves. It is sad because ultimately the clients that they service pay the price, due to poor treatment by management people leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get better results if you have confidence and chose your words more wisely when speaking with a person. Praising someone for their hard work and dedication can yield positive results. Managing to harshly makes people not want to go the extra mile. Listening to staff can only make a better environment for all involved.
