    I worked at Fraser full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful people to support with a wide variety of abilities and disabilities. The guardians/teams are genuinely appreciative of all that the people who are supporting their loved ones do for the, Beautiful homes to work in that have obviously had a lot of money invested to make the homes accessible, warm and comfortable for those living in them.
    High PTO benefits that are flexible to be used for holidays, pick time, vacation, etc.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Work is first. You are expected to pick up the phone 24 hours a day. Even if coverage is arranged, it ultimately falls on you to make sure the situation is dealt with correctly.
    No additional compensation for on-call duties. No additional compensation for emergency direct care support. You will be called for non-emergency reasons, by policy, regardless of the time.
    You will always be in 'emergency-mode' rather than being able to proactively address a situation. Support from management has extremely slow turn around, if any support is given, making the emergency-mode cycle continue.
    Management has an "Us Vs. Them" attitude, discouraging questions or conversation to provide "a united front against" their employees.
    No holiday pay besides using PTO. No additional pay if working on a holiday (PTO cannot be used if working the holiday).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would encourage the management team to ditch the "united front" method of management and work on encouraging communication, even if it is critical of themselves. This will support more teamwork at all levels and allow more trust from the upper levels that the lower levels of employees can fully support their clients, and help to identify gaps of training or services provided.

    I worked at Fraser full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    After learning the business, I was trusted to do my Office Manager job in m own way. The office was 5 minutes from my home. The three owners/brothers were like additional big brothers to me. I felt like I was contributing and loved that they could depend on me.

    Cons

    Lack of business caused them to have to cut my hours to part time. This was not feasible for me so I had to leave.

    start looking at the turn over rate and treat your employees like you care what they have to say and listen....there is turnover for a reason
