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

    Pros

    Great benefits, great work life balance. Great service to those in need.
    101 Best and Brightest Places to work for many years in a row.

    Cons

    No biggie, but since the money is put in to programs and services, building maintenance can be lacking.

    I worked at Easterseals full-time

    Pros

    Mission and the nature of the work with the clients are great. Medical benefits through Kaiser were good.

    Cons

    Hierarchy and disconnect between top management and rest of staff even though the organization was not that big. Little training and support to staff. VERY low paying. Don't factor in raises for inflation, let alone the heavy increases for cost of living in Denver. Most people had to have a side hustle to make it work. Technology and systems were a hindrance to doing good work. High amounts of staff turnover.
     Would not recommend to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Provide raises. Provide the technology and support necessary to help staff do their jobs. You have a great mission, make the working environment good enough so that people want to stick around.

    I worked at Easterseals full-time

    Pros

    You'll really be able to make a difference in people's lives, everyone is so helpful and supportive, they love hiring internally for higher-up positions and value longevity.

    Cons

    Understaffed means you're overworked, but mostly everyone is willing to help out in a pinch. High stress and easy to burn out. Pay isn't the best, but generous PTO after your first year.

    Pros

    Great environment and teamwork, upper management is accessible.

    Cons

    They don't give raises unless you change positions, which contributes to high turnover.

    I have been working at Easterseals full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There were none but over time if you love having no life

    Cons

    Pay, on call,staff, high school behavior from the office down. Management speak to employees in disrespectful tones. If you’re white you’ll be okay if you’re black walk on egg shells.

    Advice to Management

    Stop listening without verifying information. Stop the clickish behavior.

    They need to see what really goes on while they think the supervisory position is being handled in a correct way. They need to see the TOXIC atmosphere personally!! What a Shame Easter Seals!
