    Pros

    Very good health benefits, most employees really care about what they are doing, They are trying to evolve.

    Cons

    Each component is run more like a franchise (ICF, IRA, Day Habilitation, etc.). Although there is supposed to be one policy in the agency everyone that works there knows that's not true.
    As the population grows older they are at a lost as to how to deal with the changes so they do nothing until things go awfully wrong and then the blame is always on the little guy although the big guys knew there was a problem all along
    Most of the managers that run the different locations have been there way to long and do not know how to handle change which is one of the biggest problems.
    THERE IS NO CONFIDENTIALITY. Confidentiality is an illusion they will and do find out who you are
    They do not just ask questions they interrogate which makes people resistant to report anything.
    As long as things look good on paper that is all the agency managers care about forget about the fact so much has to be covered up.
    As the economy gets better and the agency is requiring more and more from its workers with a very low pay base no one is staying. Once people see and feel what is really going on they leave. They want to much for too little.

    Advice to Management

    You absolutely must stop hearing your employees you must listen, they are much smarter than you think. Do you realize when you do these town hall meetings you talk about the direction of the company that direction does not seem to include the people there right now in the trenches it sounds great for the employees 10 years from now, but no hope for the employee now that is struggling. We are dedicating our lives to make this work with very little compensation. Clean up Shoreham it is a cesspool

    I worked at AHRC Suffolk part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits for part time employees. OT work holidays.

    Cons

    Working at Old Field was a nightmare. The Supervisor had favorites and treated employees that were Hispanic or African American poorly. Theyd have to clean while her favorites did fun activities. An employee was beaten by a client and Supervisor waited an hour to call an ambulance! Then they fired the employee so they couldnt sue; just sick.

    Advice to Management

    When employees are trying to give you a heads up about house supervisors listen to them! Provide cultural training or remove Sups that discriminate against employees. Also, I have seen clients get mistreated and if your the Sups friend she wont report you. This shouldnt happen anywhere Sup shouldnt be friends with certain staff and allow mistreatment.
