    I have been working at Children's Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Much work has been put in over the past year to raise salaries, especially with teachers and therapists. Supervisors and direct staff are focused on making a difference in the community. New leadership team over the past couple of years that really wants to make a bigger difference. The work is very rewarding.

    Cons

    The work itself can be emotionally challenging. Services provided in areas of highest need, which can be a bit daunting at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on the changes. As long as you focus on serving families and helping staff, we'll get there.
