    I worked at Alternatives Unlimited (Massachusetts) full-time

    Pros

    The individuals we work with every day.

    Cons

    Everything else. The culture and values of this storefront are tired and decayed. They, senior management, has not bothered to evaluate nor update anything since the 1980s. They are only interested in the padding of their own pockets while throwing the token "bone" of a mere pittance to staff to "shut them up."

    Advice to Management

    Time to MOVE ON! Get out and let someone who is qualified run the organization. This means all of you on senior management! Not one of you should be spared! Eradicate each of you!
