Pros

- Constant staff training
- Professional at times
- Working with like-minded people can be great
- Many career driven people

Cons

- Advancement is non-existent
- Working in group homes is extremely stressful
- Due to the nature of the work, employees back stab each other frequently
- Management does not care if you love the company, any problems and they pressure you to quit
- Management ACTIVELY may prevent you from any room to maneuver
- Write-ups can be used to instantly end chances for longevity or advancement
- Staff members will literally fight you on the job
- Management, especially upper management are drunk on their power

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many teachers pets and unofficial managers, ie: long-term employees that are treated like managers and given statues, yet curse/disrespect newer employees,saying things management would never be allowed to say.
Don't screw over those who love the company for those who dont.

    I worked at YAI National Institute

    Pros

    -they hire great fun people (too bad they lose them)
    -They wont fire you since everyone quits
    -You get a good feeling knowing that YAI is important for families and people with disabilities

    Cons

    -CFO only likes and promotes men
    -NO Growth, they would rather hire from outside
    -ZERO SALARY INCREASES although upper management is getting paid way too high...always the excuse of "budget Cuts"
    -Sneaky management that will promote people in the department but wont annouce it or have the person keep it as a secret because 4 people within the same department who do more and have been working there just as long or longer have not seen one promotion or increase
    -Employees that sleep at their desk get recognition over the person who works

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You hire great people and do a very poor job at keeping them. FIX IT!
