    I worked at Benco full-time

    Pros

    Working for a Residential provider means that you will be making a difference in someone's life for the better everyday-even if it feels like you are just doing the regular duties of keeping a house. The people you work with are amazing! A majority of the staff that work at Benco are long term employees. They really care about the work they are doing and the impact it will have on the people they are supporting. Benco pays an above competitive wage. This is often disputed by the staff, but I would encourage them to do some homework! A lot of the other providers in Linn and Benton county do not pay at the same rate or raise schedule.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between the administrators and the direct care staff. The Board of Directors does not have a realistic view of the business, the programs or the people being supported. They rely solely on what the Executive Director tells them. They could do a better job making decisions about the company if they were more involved and invested in their position. Mary Kay Gleicher is listed as the CEO. She was the President of the Board for years and was a wonderful lad, but she passed away about 6 years ago.
