    I have been working at ACLD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great way to gain professional work experience. Plenty of overtime available. Trainers are really on point at this agency.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and high turn over. Overnight awake staff at house I was hired to work at sleep most of the night and do not provide proper over site to the residents.

    Advice to Management

    Show up when not expected.

    I worked at ACLD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The individual we support are wonderful. A chance to make a difference. There are some really hard working people who really care about the individuals and will work 60-70 hour work weeks (salaried, unpaid)

    Cons

    No/little supervision or training; favoritism; MSC quickly learn that they are on their own as upper management can not answer procedural questions; Billing is more of a concern that helping people live an "enviable life" questionable promotions indicate favoritism while others are not recognized in a proper fashion (again, poor management)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to Exit Interviews and ACT.


  10. "Terrible Supervision"

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Being able to work with the individuals on caseload is challenging and rewarding work. Salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    Horrible Management. Unfriendly, condescending, barely available Supervision. Questions are not permitted without dealing with aggressive and unprofessional reaction from Supervision. Often left without guidance on serious issues.

    Advice to Management

    Treating employees poorly will continue to keep employee turnover high. Supervision should be available and professional.
