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

    Pros

    I was able to gain a lot of career related experience working at Dacco as they offered a lot of employee trainings. The majority of my co-workers were great people who enjoyed being able to help others in the community,

    Cons

    The "Third Floor" is not held accountable for some of their actions and decisions. There seems to be a degree of prejudice going on when it comes to the hiring of management. Also, the "Third Floor" was unable to accept that when things don't seem to be going smoothly, they need to own their part in the decisions that fostered the problem to begin with rather than seek out scape goats.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain your licensed, professional staff, you need to offer competitive salaries. Additionally, a level of ethical decision making would assist with the retention of licensed staff as they would feel more secure within their positions and the company.

    Pros

    Agency has a thorough, comprehensive treatment program designed to treat the whole person; friendly and supportive staff which makes one feel part of a family; administration expresses appreciation and respect for staff members who dutifully complete their tasks; jobs offer a clinically enriching experience for a professional to learn much about human behaviors.

    Cons

    Clinical staff are too burdened with clerical duties which interferes with their energy and time to devote themselves to their clinical work.

    Advice to Management

    Apply for a grant from government aging services to hire part-time retired clerical staff to assist clinical staff to complete the massive clerical work.

    I have been working at DACCO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work with clients who really need help and are thankful to have you. Seeing their small strides gives you motivation.

    Cons

    Paper work paper work and then more paper work. But other than that its a good job and helps people.

    Advice to Management

    Things are great and very supportive keep up the good work. Management has a lot on their plate as well and I think the other reviewers don't realize that.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere among most staff, a lot of PTO, and laid back for the most part.

    Cons

    Pay is low, which ultimately hurts the program because quality employees usually leave soon after starting, and they attract a lot of staff that end up having more problems than the people they serve....and then upper management complains about turnover to lower management??? Too much focus on money vs the quality of care for the clients and overall structure of program.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the wages. Support your staff. Don't ruin a program's integrity at the expense of "keeping the beds full"
