    Pros

    You can work from home, you do accrue vacation pay, and you can adjust your work schedule.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is not balanced. You are away from home for 10-12 hours a day but not working all of those hours. Then you have to do work at home. You end up doing work at home on the weekend and often work 7 days a week. The rules for how you are to do your work are impossible to follow when they are all taken together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some great people to work with but others do not treat you with respect. There seems to be a disconnect to the reality of what can be accomplished in a week and what is expected.

    Pros

    working with the children and families that receive services was the only positive thing about this job.

    Cons

    The admin pretends to care about you, but they only care about you if you are able to suck up to them somehow. The second you do something wrong (whether by accident or something out of your control), you are written up without them asking you what happened. The admin are quick to blame others for mistakes they have blatantly made. The office is a black hole where only negativity comes out of. If you do something right, just wait, they will find something you did wrong within a few minutes. There is absolutely no praise for the people that work hard and truly care about their cases, and the people that slack get promotions and pats on the back. No support whatsoever for employees that may be having a hard time. The admin are permitted to only work Monday through Friday from 9-5, but the field staff is expected to work 24/7. If you have a problem and it occurs after 5PM on a weekday, forget about having it resolved by an admin...it will have to wait until they are in the office...no matter what. Good luck getting paid for services you provided to consumers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. When we state that we are unhappy and several people leave the company a month, it may be time to reevaluate how you treat your employees.

    Pros

    Fantastic team to work with overall including supervisory support. The clinical director of Robinson is very down to earth and treats everyone equally and with respect. Positive and strong leadership from the top down makes the work environment very positive and enjoyable.

    Cons

    Simply not enough money. Although the work environment is positive and a place where I would love to stay, when the work hours are not consistent and the pay is horrible, it is not enough to keep staff. The pay rate for this sort of job has not changed at all in fifteen years where the pay rate for other fields is changing with the times. It is unfortunate because the work is enjoyable and the team is amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only real advice would be for the highest management, to look realistically at what the culture of pay rates is today and increase to that level to keep staff. The office culture, at least of Robinson, is very positive and I would have no suggestion for change within that office culture.

    Pros

    employees band together, at least

    Cons

    Corporate office dictates ridiculous changes, expectations. They handle themselves very unprofessionally, almost child-like, when things don't go according to plan. They make everything WAY too complicated, and when the work suffers, they look for someone to place blame on, rather than simplify their own foolish policies, procedures, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify. Act like professionals.
