    I have been working at Easterseals full-time

    Pros

    The company and the mission it stands for is awesome. The dedication to people with disabilities is second to none

    Cons

    The downside is some of management could be trained better to make decisions and learn to motivate your team. This is the HS/EHS program

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team and help motivate them, so they can know they are appreciated and valued.

    I worked at Easterseals full-time

    Pros

    Excellent mission and program offerings
    ED has very high standards so staff learns a lot
    Company has support of national office
    Non profit status helps offset limits on ability for some clients to pay privately

    Cons

    ED is tough and sometimes comes down so hard you don't want to work there anymore. It often feels unreasonable - she is a perfectionist and some things are out of staff control but that doesn't stop her from railing at them, esp managers.
    Lots of program staff turnover.
    Wages are decent but not great (it's a non profit) and there is a lot of emphasis on staff giving to the company. Felt like pressure. I gave when I really couldn't afford it.
    Not a lot of room for advancement for most.

    Advice to Management

    Give consideration to the position staff is in before giving feedback that can be perceived as harsh.
    Don't make a formal "ask" to staff for donations. It feels like pressure to some when many already feel like they are giving by working for a bit less than they could get elsewhere.
