    Pros

    Generous time-off, service-oriented professionals, excellent place to begin your future career at.

    Cons

    The structure of the managerial staff is inconsistent within some departments. The managers adopt a "learn-as-you-go" teaching philosophy. At times, information varies from one person to another; a lack of group cohesion when exchanging pertinent information.

    Advice to Management

    It would be best to attend to the individual needs of your respective departments, and not to those on the outside. Managers should specialize in the happenings within their own departments. In addition, trial-and-error learning often makes some feel incompetent. There is a need to devise adequate training procedures for new hires. Lastly, there is a lack of an accepted work culture that permeates throughout the entire organization.

    Pros

    The company has a strong commitment to its vision and has developed an eye toward career advancement for its employees.

    Cons

    The support structure for the company is a bit on the sprawling side, with resources being hard to call upon when needed. Plus, the nature of the job means that you're effectively on-call 24/7 even when you're not supposed to be.

    Advice to Management

    A stronger, mandatory relief pool or workers would be useful.

    Pros

    The individuals I helped makes my job better. co workers. If you seeking part time work.

    Cons

    The requires to much for too little. They pay 7.70 here and we have to lift, pull, shop, take on outings, document, clean, and cook for them. Everyone has they own way of training you after you already been trained on something. I applied for a home manager position 3 times and I still did not get the position they rather go out and find someone new. The managers gossip about regular staff. When staff has a problem the go to upper management but they come back and repeat everything that was told to them. The individual never have money to go on good outings. They dont give over time they try to find a way to take the overtime back. The regional directors are lazy well one of them. They treat the staff like trash. and the individual gets treated like children. They do not acknowledge the good work of the employees. Management do not stick up for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Reconstructed the whole company and give the employees a reason why they should stay employed with you.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, Great Supervisor, low turn over (you are lucky if there is a spot available!), wonderful families. Just an amazing place.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any. It can get overwhelming when there are a lot of cases, but the job and the people who you work with, make up for that. I only left because I had to--my husband is in the military and we were being stationed some place else.

    Advice to Management

    None!
