Pros

I enjoyed helping people with disabilities go about their daily lives, give them their med, cook for them and take them out into the community.

Cons

They have poor management. they relocate you as soom as their residents really like their staff because they don't want them to get to attached to their staff. I feel this is wrong because it rips their heart out. Very high employee turnover!

  1. An organization that does so much for the community, lacks as an employer.

    Pros

    This organization does a great deed for the challenged community. The compensation vs. work load is acceptable for a nonprofit company. Most of the employees are nice and respectable.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management system. Lack of advancement opportunities due to said system and preferential treatment of employees. Management does not either have (or take) time to inform employees of changes or have staff meetings.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs a complete management overhaul. Rampant employee dissatisfaction and gossip ruin the work experience. Lack of staff workload organization and requirements along with various questionable practices makes this a place difficult to recommend.

  2. Helpful (1)

    Very difficult fied to work in and a very unsupportive employer to work for.

    Pros

    Small agency where you can easily get to know all of your coworkers and the people that receive support from the agency. People with developmental disabilities deserve quality support and you can make a difference in their lives through any Arc agency.

    Cons

    Mangement is small minded and think highly of themselves. Input from people who work directly with and for the people who receive support is not respected.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn to recognize what you can and cannot do to support people. Please acknowledge that direct support professionals have valuable input and be sure to reflect their importance in your actions.
