    I worked at ResCare

    Pros

    ResCare helps developmentally disabled adults learn everyday skills.

    Cons

    ResCare as a company is very good, the EduCare division in El Paso doesn't teach the skills I was trained to help clients learn. The home managers are overworked to the point of ridiculousness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ResCare needs to clean up EduCare and have one home manager per home instead of one manager per three homes. They also need to stop expecting managers to work seven days a week.

    I worked at ResCare (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a lot of potential to be the best in the area compared to what the area has to offer, but the bottom line is always profit over quality of care for ResCare.

    Cons

    There is a very large disconnect from corporate to the local office. People are promoted based upon race (lots of reverse racism within the company), as well as who is able to produce the most revenue (even if that means defrauding insurance.)
