    I have been working at St. Coletta of Wisconsin full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The culture at St. Coletta is something that I've never felt before. There is no denying the fact that when you are hired at St. Coletta you become part of an extended family. A family that takes great interest in your well being, livelihood, and overall happiness.

    Cons

    Work can be demanding, however the reward of working with persons served far outweighs the negative. Leaders and co-workers response to the demands of the industry also helps in balancing responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    We are very fortunate to have a management team that understands the importance of continuing to push the organization forward. Continue on!
