    I have been working at Alternatives part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay. They hire people with little to no experience. Great entry level job in the field of developmental disabilities. They send out a weekly internal position posting. There is room for advancement.

    Cons

    The way some programs are structured is frustrating in the sense that they encourage bad behavior from clients. They are ridiculously strict with training requirements. I have had many errors in my paychecks.
