    I have been working at Head Injury Association full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with individuals who suffer TBI's. Very flexible. Decent benefits. Residental management was pretty chill, just over worked.

    Cons

    Huge, huge turn overs. Nurses don't stay. Managers are way over worked and don't stay. Drivers don't stay. They have workers driving a mini school bus without a CDL! Lets talk driver position. Drivers have to pick up there residents (a-signed house), plus extra individuals , run doctors appointments, fill out paperwork. Work in day hab when the van is parked. Stay pass 4 o'clock most of the time until someone shows up, all for 12 dollars a hour. Next you can't work past 16 hours. If there no one to relieve you past the 16 hours you're expected to punch out and wait. Sounds illegal. They punshed employees last year who worked over 16 hours by coming up to sign for checks. Some checks where as low as $3.00! No joke. Had to go into office indiviually and get spoken to and sign a sheet that you received the money. They constantly expect workers to drop everything to come up the main office for whatever. They the clients where ever they find for. Not always the best place for the individual.

    Advice to Management

    This for upper manacement, Wake up! Come up with solutions. Stop treating the clients as a way to get money and start actually looking at ways to help them. There a lot clients that are placed in condos and houses that aren't right for them. Stop treating your emloyees like you own them

    I have been working at Head Injury Association full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Head Injury Association (More than a year)

    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
