I worked at Baker Victory Services full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The residents are fun to work with (you'd hate to leave them) and the staff are mostly fine and dedicated. House managers are all right, some are nice and hardworking.

Cons

The people who run the agency should be removed and replaced. They are clueless about handling and managing staff and making them feel wanted and needed (the "Sanctuary Model" notwithstanding, it is merely feel-good propaganda.)

Advice to Management

To upper management (ranking higher that program Coordinators). Either resign or get back into direct care for a while to see what the agency is about. You are too removed from the real work of the staff.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Baker Victory Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I started over 2 years ago I had to chase down to get any information about start dates,and training. There is no real training.

    Cons

    The staff in the preschool are always on cell phones. The younger people there are flirting with the fathers of the children. People like the last principal worked there even though they got arrested for DWIs. It is the fact that they don't give any training for behaviors but have behavior rooms is concerning, when they are asked for a behavior plan you get nothing, they aren't trained in disabilities so the teachers aren't providing the best service .The teacher in my room was more concerned with her heroine addicted baby daddy than the kids.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be ambiguous about behavior policy. Don't go out drinking with your staff.
