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

    Pros

    Working with the client population is such a gift. They are special people who will be tough to help at times, but ultimately will teach you as much as you teach them.

    Cons

    The management at Easter Seals in Norwich is very cutthroat. There are many managers and supervisors but they tend to give varying instructions and there appears to be a lot of infighting among them. They do not address staff issues as they come up, but instead leave it to the staff to sort out, which frequently leaves an atmosphere of hostility and mistrust.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salary to be equal to level of work required, and be more proactive in terms of management. Creating an atmosphere of mutual respect and leadership could have a major positive impact on the staff, directly affecting the impact of the clients.
