    Pros

    An opportunity to give back and make a difference.Good for students who wish to work in health and human services.

    Cons

    The pay,the pay,the pay.Staff shortages are frequent,the company is slow to hire,waits until its critical Low level supervisors have a lot of responsibility,do the best they can.Lack of common sense in upper management. They move the clients around to suit their needs,not the clients needs.There is only 1 vision,that's the CEO's.who is not who you have listed here. The person listed here is the chairman of the board of directors..

    Advice to Management

    Start treating and paying your people what we are worth.Someone working for 10 years should not be making the same as someone who started yesterday.

    Pros

    The consumers and the friendships you forge with good people that truly care!

    Cons

    When the CEO drives a Ferrari and has swanky places in the hamptons and in manhattan, seems quite pretentious and shows absolutely no respect for her employees!

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip and start paying your employees more money and show your appreciation rather then your lack of concern
