    Great Place to Work while also being Rewarding!!!

    Client Support Specialist (Current Employee) UC Berkeley, CA

    ProsThe Clients, Staff, the pay and the benefits. This is a very caring work environment, and I love working for this company.

    ConsThere is a lot of paperwork to complete for everything you do in this company, and sometimes it is quite time consuming, the upside is it can be done from home.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the Great Work!!!

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

    The capacity for learning tapered off quickly

    Community Support Facilitator (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsYou really get to impact specific people's lives for the better. As your job is simply to help clients, there is some room for creativity as the criteria is simply that what you do provides benefit in some way. One perk is the ability to work on other things or read while working with clients.

    ConsThere is no room for career advancement at this job. The status quo is what other employees are comfortable with, and the is not likely to change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not share with me how bad my peers are at their jobs. That is never okay.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Why not Toolworks?

    Director (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGood place to start a career, since many positions are open to folks with a strong interest in the file, of not direct personal experience. Competitive salary and good benefits. Centrally located in downtown San Francisco, but many opoortunities to work directly with clients in their homes.

    ConsVery quirky people and occasionally difficult client base. Having a strong background in working with persons with disabilties is essential in order to thrive. ASL or bilingual skills will give you an inside edge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe consistent in your actions and don't be afraid to hold people accountable for their actions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
