    I have been working at Easterseals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with youth living with trauma. Coworkers are pleasant and generally care for each other. Management is supportive and generally listen to concerns of employees and youth.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for completing necessary agency documents, while ensuring the best care for clients. Like most agencies understaffed and enadequate training. Little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure there is proper staffing for safety of staff and clients.
