    Pros

    The management professionals are kind and compassionate and see their employees as people first with families and other obligations. They very often promote from within so the opportunity for advancement is great. Employees who do a good job are rewarded with praise, time off and career opportunities.

    Cons

    Since it is a non-proft, the salary is not as good as it would be if you work for a for profit company.

    I have been working at Clearbrook Agency part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great schedule, wonderful staff, opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Training mostly "trial by fire" but if you have a degree and prior experience you should know what you are doing anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Keep open communication.

    I have been working at Clearbrook Agency full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    When you work for a non-profit social service agency, you don't expect to get rich however the other benefits help make up for that. I feel good about what I do every single day and I enjoy my job. No two days are ever the same and I am never, ever bored.

    Cons

    I cannot really think of any cons for this agency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. This is a progressive company that continues to grow even during difficult economic times.

    I have been working at Clearbrook Agency part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When you go into any workplace and you see that every single employee is smiling and very happy to be there, you KNOW it will be a positive place to work. That is exactly what you see when you first walk into a Clearbrook agency !! Everyone says hello and good morning to each other and seems to always have an extra kick in their step. Now, that may not seem like a big deal to you, but can you honestly say you know a ton of companies in which all the employees actually love their job and cannot go to work ?? They seem to be few and far between these days. Not only is Clearbrook a very positive place to work, but it is extremely rewarding as well. As an SLA at Clearbook, you may be working with a number of people with all sorts of disabilities. Clearbook provides you with a ton of support, as well as the training and information you need to highlight and bring out all of the amazing abilities in every client you work with !! It truly is a unique and rewarding job.

    *Positive place to work
    * Extremely rewarding
    * Paid training
    * Job never gets boring or monotonous
    * No matter what position someone holds, they NEVER speak down to you
    * Treat every employee as a highly valued asset to the company

    Cons

    Pay may not seem reflective of job description and some people may think it is inadequate. However, remember this is a non-profit organization and much of the funding is from the government. I think Clearbrook truly works to get you the pay you want and deserve whenever possible.

    I have been working at Clearbrook Agency full-time

    Pros

    Supportive, energetic environment. Employees have a great deal of autonomy. Training and supervision is excellent. Staff are encouraged to think outside the box. Promotion from within is encouraged and happens often. The services provided to families and individuals with intellectual disabilities is above and beyond expectation. This agency has and will continue to lead other in the field. A great place to work.

    Cons

    Working in this field in the state of Illinois is challenging. Lack of funding continues to negatively impact the population served.

    I worked at Clearbrook Agency part-time

    Pros

    I honestly enjoyed working for Clearbrook and would like to go back someday if possible. The president cares about his employees, and it shows. Working with my client was a happy three years, and I really felt like I gained a friend, not a client. I only had to leave because I took maternity leave.

    Cons

    The hours are a little sparse for the home based program. I always wanted a bit more.

    Advice to Management

    None really. The amount of paperwork is a little ridiculous, but other than that it's a very fun, enjoyable part time job.
