    Pros

    M-F 9-5 hrs providing direct services to help people with disabilities and older adults.

    Cons

    CEO is chaotic and employees are not treated well or valued. They are not very well respected company. No future there. Very little communication from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to people and show some decency to people. Compensate people better. If the CEO left CDR could be an awesome company.

    Pros

    CDR has a great mission and passionate employees who care about the rights of disabled people. They do great work in the community and across the state. The CEO and management reward staff who are dedicated and perform well.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, CDR has some bad apples who are lazy, complain, and don't do their jobs. It's frustrating to see these employees keep their jobs. Many of us who are passionate and love it here can occasionally get frustrated by these people.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't be afraid to get rid of the lazy complainers - they only bring us down. Thank you for recognizing those of us who are dedicated.

    Pros

    Some very nice people work there and there is definitely some wonderful services that the Independent Living Centers can provide the community

    Cons

    The Senior leaders are misguided and dictatorial . Methods of overseeing the employees is unethical and cruel. It is not uncommon to have items thrown at you, yelled at, and definitely there is no training for your roles within the organization. Morale is dismal and depressed and turnover is high. The BOD is significantly under the influence of the CEO and exert little to no authority.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO.
