    Pros

    Good pay for direct care staff compared to other company's.
    Management will listen and help, if you ask.
    Lots of hours and over time available.
    Most staff are friendly and work as team.
    Most staff who are able to do job over 6 months, truly care about clients.
        Job has hard demands at time, clients have brain injuries., some people are not cut out for the work.
    Management and therapist, and all higher level staff truly care.
    The care of clients is great. If i have seen something i did not like. management helped out with it.
    I personally have known people placed in other centers like this one, and would always pick this one for a friend or family over others center.
    i interviewed and saw other centers like this. I picked to work at this center because they care One or two days a month are hard, because they are brain injured clients, with problems.
     1 or 2 hard days a month, is better then other jobs I've had.
    I have been on outings in the community with clients, outings, that were unbelievably great. Stuff i could have never afforded to do on my own. Other outings, were so great, when off work i too family to them.
    If i need info, i go to therapist or nursing and they always educate and offer other options.
    I recommend job to others.
    On call staff have a lot of flexablity on hours. some stay when working other jobs.
    i worked with one staff, finished college, took her teaching job, worked part time for Eisenhower to save to buy house and in summer. She worked part time until she married and was 7 months pregnant.

    Cons

    Some staff working floors are young. some need advice or education on life skills, not all people will take that.

    Trash bags are too wimpy.

    Not enough staff at times and my have to stay over on shifts to keep floors covered. I have never been kept over more then 2 hours, unless i wanted too. i told management if a day was bad and they picked another or called in an on call staff. i have seen management work floors to get staff off with in hour after shift. in this kind of service, things can happen and someone is a no show, late or more client care needed for a short time.

    Lots of staff turn over, because this is a job, to get to other stages in life. A lot of people do not understand brain injury behavior.
    If one wants to work here long term, they can promote.

    New hiring H R person is not honest with new hires on hours, what they will need to do as far as kind of clients. He is out of touch with staff needs.
    If u want to work here, talk to staff on floors and ask what it is like.
    Be clear with new HR hiring person what u need and want. as far as hours and time. clarify what he is telling you about job, to make sure you want what he is offering before you take job.

    I see staff quiet when frustrated with things that could be fixed, but they dont go to management or HR to ask what could be done to fix troubles. There is a lot of miscommunication between hourly staff.

    Advice to Management

    Let hourly staff know you are willing to listen and fix troubles.
    Take time to check in with staff or be available to staff.
    Staff sees your are busy and think u dont have time to help out.
