    Good employer in a great location

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall agencies, great office culture. Feeling of interconnectedness between other agencies makes it feel like less of a bureaucracy than other states. Management genuinely cares about employees

    ConsDue to being a good place, some promotional opportunities are difficult to come by. Some difficulty in breaking in to culture.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Helping adults with disabilities daily to achieve their work goals is an honor; I'm thrilled to be part of the process!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Burlington, VT

    ProsOutstanding colleagues
    Opportunities for growth
    Amazing information sharing
    Everyday there is an opportunity to help others.
    The work is interesting, challenging and varies from day-to-day.
    Non-judgmental atmosphere
    Very supportive environment
    Open to suggestions and ideas

    ConsSometimes clients are difficult. When that happens, that's when the real challenges happen!
    There are plenty of rules and regulations overall, (as there should be given the nature of our business), but some seemingly basic protocols would ease some tensions. This is more an over-sight than management not wanting to offer them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work but growth is limited as most positions are held by employees for years

    Technical Writer (Former Employee)
    Montpelier, VT

    ProsThe PEOPLE!, hands down, I enjoyed the people I worked with but professionally there was not room for me to grow

    ConsSlow to change or update policy but that may have more to do with lack of funds than anything else.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI'm not sure who can fund raise but maybe turn some attention to that so that funds does not remain the issue holding all departments back

    If you like to sit on your butt and stagnate...

    Data Center Operations Supervisor (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat benefits, very little in the way of pressure, good hours

    ConsJob gets boring and management is constantly changing, out of touch and has no interest in developing the skills of their workers even when pressed to do so. Its extremely political and advancement has everything to do with politics and nothing with performance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed fewer, many fewer managers and give the people that want to improve the place a chance to do more.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
