    I worked at United Cerebral Palsy part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The clients are wonderful. The Christmas parties are getting better. F/t has benefits.

    Cons

    Everyone makes 10.00 hr. To avoid letting people go, they knocked everyone down to 10.00. I lost almost 3.00 hr. P/T lost all benefits. Don't expect a raise. Hours were taken from workers. Some had to let clients they had for years, go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the benetits back to P/T. Begin giving raises. Christmas parties are Rawhide were great.

    I worked at United Cerebral Palsy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Besides the clients and their families.....NOTHING

    Cons

    Very bad management style. Employees are not treated with respect. They expect you to get everything done without any proper training. The RN supervisor is a joke!. It is really sad the conditions some of the patients are in, all they care about is money. Patient goes around with dirty diaper and feces under nails....very poor conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all of them ad hire COMPASSIONATE and COMPETENT people. THE WHOLE BUSINESS IS A JOKE!!!

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my clients. They were awesome and taught me new things.

    Cons

    The company is so poorly run that they can't keep workers very long. Management disrespects its good workers and are oblivious of all the hard work the good workers do who truly care. They really don't care or respect their workers or the clients they serve. They are all talk no action. There is blatant favoritism. forget about being promoted or even respected if you are not friends with them. Its a hostile environment and they take sides with the bullies who harass everyone. If you try to adress serious concerns you will be ignored or berated. There are people placed in high up management positions who do not belong there at all. They only got the job because they are friends with someone, They are bringing the company down due to their lack of leadership and responsibilty and incompetence. They make so many mistakes and try to cover them up or blame others. They are very dishonest and inconsiderate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some respect to the workers there who work hard and care.. Don't belittle your workers and treat them like losers.

    Pros

    The best thing is working with the client's and making sure the are well maintained.

    Cons

    The pay is not that great!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have an employee who is doing a great job for you; reward them by giving a salary increase at least after the first year.
