    I have been working at United Cerebral Palsy full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisors are really nice and so are the employees. They are very understanding. Great if you are a student or have another job.

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great. I felt there wasn't much room for growth. There are many positions within that you can transfer to, but sometimes that requires a pay cut to an already low pay.

    I have been working at United Cerebral Palsy full-time

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and challenging. Working in foster care can create hostile environments (I've worked in many of those in the past). But overall, the staff here keep their cool and remain respectful of each other despite differences in opinions around client needs or service delivery.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a lot of room for advancement, annual salary increases of any kind are not a given.

    Pros

    The best reason to work a UCP is because of its Benefits & 401k packages.

    Cons

    The Cons of working at UCP is the lack of pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please start giving your workers more wages for there work. They deserve it
