Does The Bair Foundation offer tuition reimbursement?

Pros

Working with families Enjoyed my coworkers, team cooperation

Cons

Management Work life balance Work load Travel After hours work Pay rate, travel reimbursement is lower than state rate Union busters I felt like this was a 24 hour job a lot of the time. My stress levels were through the roof and management at the time was not willing to work with me and be a little more flexible.

Does The Bair Foundation offer unlimited time off?

Pros

I worked at The Bair Foundation for almost 2 years and loved it! This was the first job that I looked forward to every day and felt a true sense of purpose. At the Erie office, there is a great work culture and the director is always available if you need help and always thinking of new ideas to support foster families and kids. The Bair Foundation gives staff little gifts throughout the year to make staff feel appreciated. My coworkers were always there when I needed help. There was emphasis on us being a team and I felt that. I also became pretty attached to my foster families and kids. I loved the flexibility of my job, the PTO time, mileage reimbursement and the Student Loan Forgiveness Program. The pay is fair with the opportunity to have an increase annually. Although, it would have been nice to be paid a little more considering the type of work you do. With my job, there was sometimes an opportunity to make more based on your case load and when you do on-call, which was nice. Overall, it was a great experience and I learned a lot!

Cons

The healthcare options could be a bit better and it is difficult to manage work/life balance at times with a high caseload and when families are further away (you spend more time traveling than visiting)

Advice to Management

It is great that you give small gifts of appreciation to staff often; however, please offer better healthcare options and help staff also take care of their families (higher pay, help with childcare, and better work/life balance) since we go above and beyond to help our foster families/kids.

Does The Bair Foundation offer a wellness program?

Pros

The first big pro is the office culture that I was in. I was excited to come to work everyday and being with those girls. In that office everyone had each other’s backs. When you needed help it was there. I also loved my position. I loved being able to reach out to community members during holiday times to get donations for the kids, I loved putting those gifts together to make the kids whole day! I loved being such a crucial part of making the office run. I was in charge running reports on the current foster families, making sure they were up to date on all state regulations, I would create monthly logs for the children as well as newsletters. I would do lots of filing I’m not only our hard copies but in our electronic as well. An make sure that all office supplies were stocked. I honestly loved working for Bair and their mission. They not only help the children thrive but they make sure the foster families do as well. They prioritize employees mental health well being and have amazing benefits! They truly care about you as an individual and not just an employee!

Cons

Honestly there is not many downsides to working with this company. The only con that I really had was that I was not getting paid enough for what I all did.

Advice to Management

The advice I would give is to really dive deep into the financials and see where the company could save in order to raise the money for the employees. They do so much to make that company run smoothly. They are out in the field everyday doing Gods work and they deserve more.

They prioritize employees mental health well being and have amazing benefits!
