    Pros

    There are a ton of trainings to get you up to speed and in the residential department especially there are a bunch of opportunities to get to know both coworkers and upper management.

    Cons

    Even with the trainings, there's a steep learning curve. The high rate of turnover and short-staffing is always difficult, but that's what one expects working in residential environments.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have a lot of advice to be honest, but if I had to say one thing I guess it would be to hold more company-wide events, as I felt as if a lot of residential houses were separate from one another and I didn't have many opportunities outside of the house I worked in.

    Pros

    Work with a handful of amazingly dedicated professionals doing important work for the community. Receive many kudos from volunteer, client and board of directors. Experience fulfilling and meaningful opportunities. Passionate and professional colleagues.

    Cons

    Executive management is incredibly capricious. Multiple employees have felt bullied, persecuted and bewildered by management style. Fundraising salaries are extremely high for a cash-strapped social services agency.

    Pros

    The company does not lose sight of the priority of quality care over the business goals of the company. It is a non for profit but as you know, has to be financially successful so we get paid.

    Cons

    inconsistency with the skills and job duties of caregivers; also in relationships with salaries; but i guess they go by industry standards like anywhere else; but adjustment to this discrepancies and mismatches in my opinion will increase, productivity, quality of work and employee satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Provide different levels of caregiving where salary varies according to skills and duties performed; whether it is in a per client bases or establishing different types of care giving positions.
