    Pros

    Supportive leadership, bosses that work as hard as their employees, great pay & great environment. There always seems to be opportunity that the director provides to win prizes, PTO, and he's always looking for ways to boost morale.

    Cons

    No cons in my opinion. The job is tough work but nothing that you can't handle with a good work/life balance. Highlands always encourages taking time off if you need it, with a great PTO rate to support that.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. My management has always been there for me to learn or give me leadership in tough situations. I never have an issue getting in touch with my bosses or getting them to take a minute to sit down with me if I need to staff with them. Wonderful open door policy.

    Pros

    It's a great place to work when you first come on board with the agency.
    Benefits were ok, especially the retirement.
    "Most" of the staff are great to work with - this doesn't include management.
    The offices will close during inclement weather.
    Pay was ok.

    Cons

    After the "new" wears off, you best start polishing your resume.
    The management staff needs leadership training, as it is obvious none of them have had no prior training.
    It's all about the money - nothing else!

    Advice to Management

    "Great leaders know the most effective way to communicate is by listening. Prideful leaders are only concerned with communicating their own thoughts and opinions."

    Pros

    Most co-workers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Have to use PTO for holidays. More about money than helping people. Micro management. Lucky if you get paid for PTO when you leave. No exit interview.Add to job description without increase in pay. Lack of constancy.
