    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.

    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

    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.

    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!!!
