    Former Employee - Therapeutic Support Staff in Wilkes-Barre, PA

    Pros

    loved working with these people, the place was always upbeat, I always had help and support with my clients, and truly enjoyed the experience

    Cons

    I would have loved to have been paid more, as I know some competing agencies have a higher salary scale, but this was in fact very minor to me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to truly care for the clients and their families.

    It could be a great place to work if the pay rate was fair.

    Former Employee - Specialized Support Staff

    Pros

    I loved working with the consumers and learned a lot in the 7 years I worked there. My supervisor and ASD were great at the Tunkhannock site and my co workers were terrific.

    Cons

    After 7.5 years, I only made .74 more than a new hire. The pay rate is very unfair. People with a bachelor degree in any field get a .50 bump up but my Associates degree in Human Services got no bump in pay. I was told it was a minimum requirement but that was not true because most of my co workers had no degree at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the pay rate fair. Show appreciation for employees who have been there for a long time. Direct care can be difficult.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Wilkes-Barre, PA

    Pros

    Advancement opportunity for motivated employees. Caring and understanding senior management. Rewarding atmosphere. Competative pay for the field. Fiscally aware and maintains employee workforce despite state/federal budget cuts.

    Cons

    Non-profit leaves agency and employees vulnerable to state/federal budget cuts, resulting in less than desireable health benefits, limited opportunity to work overtime, infrequent raises/bonuses/incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I truly believe Step By Step's senior management values their employees for all of the hard work they do. It is a difficult position to be in when the state slashes the funding stream, forcing an agency to make tough decisions. Employees value monetary incentives more than anything. If there was any way to increase the frequency of bonuses/incentives/raises, this would skyrocket employee morale and result in higher retention/less turnover.
