    Pros

    Wonderful organization to work for. Fraser embodies their mission, vision, and passion for clients and the community in all they do.

    Cons

    The only con to working at Fraser is the long wait times for services which are being addressed by management and we are already seeing success by implemented initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to advance top performing employees and remained focused on the client.

    Pros

    It's a place you can be proud to say you work for. The employees genuinely care about the welfare of the clients. They emphasize training throughout employment. Asking for time off is not difficult, and they are in general extremely flexible.

    Cons

    As with many human services, the pay is low.

    Pros

    Fraser has great flexibility and nice team work. I have always enjoyed my supervisors and work I do. Fraser has increased their clinical on boarding training which might help with staff retention. Fraser is large and there are a lot of different work opportunities. If you committed to the company supervisors try to find unique ways to keep you there (i.e. creating new roles and job titles). At times this is confusing because you never know when a process or supervisor is changing. I appreciate the new training opportunities they have offered me as an employee as well including different state trainings and clinical supervision towards licensure.

    Cons

    Fraser struggles to recognize exceptional employees and the pay is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Publicly recognize your employees more often, it will help increase the moral and overall staff satisfaction.

    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 Management

    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.
