    I have been working at Aspire of Western New York

    Pros

    I love the opportunities I get to work with individuals who help me grow as a professional and as a person. I love the colleagues I work with; What goes around tends to come around and you get out of work what you put in, that means heart and energy and yes sometimes volunteering time. Excellent benefits and mostly excellent relationships.

    Cons

    There definitely seems to be a glass ceiling and inappropriate promotions based on personal relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Again, get rid of the non-essential employees and keep those who do twice the work of the non-essentials, that way you have money to pay the people that do the job of two people. The Gala is nice, but perhaps you can spend half as much money on that and reward others with bonuses when they are working so hard.
