    Lack of privacy. Too much internal gossiping. Cliques.

    Directors fail to properly train staff in an concerted attempt to keep staff dependent.

    I have been working at Services for the UnderServed full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with this company for almost three years and I've watched them grow to immense levels. They focus on training and educating their staff who then provide the best and utmost care to the individuals they serve. There are so many divisions that allow you an opportunity for growth and change.

    Cons

    Like every human services job, the compensation is not enough for the amount of work and mental stress received but it's an industry problem not an agency problem. They do the absolute best they can with wages and salaries and show appreciation in other ways.

    Advice to Management

    More support for staff financially whether the union offers more or the EAP program offers more but if we can't increase wages let's try to lessen the burden in other areas of life: tuition, childcare etc especially for mandatory meetings and trainings.

    I have been working at Services for the UnderServed full-time

    Pros

    If you work in direct support, this company has great potential for advancement (or so I hear). The company really does care about it's consumers.

    Cons

    Due to recent merger as well as the turn-over nature of social services, they are more than willing to take someone with no experience. This is good if you yourself have no experience, but having a manager with no experience (especially when managing groups that DO have experience) but gets frustrating. They got hired because they "know a person." I have come across this scenario multiple times and it just increases everyone else's workload to work with incompetent people. Pay, for me, was quite a bit lower than my previous company, but due to unclear HR staff, I was not aware of what my salary would be until I went through orientation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people who are grossly un-qualified because you are desperate to fill a job. Please do not hire your grossly under-qualified friends!

    Pros

    Room to grow, but you must complete 10 months in one title before being considered for another.

    Make employees feel valued, and stop condensing multiple jobs under one title without appropriate monetary compensation.
