    I have been working at Blair Senior Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    In my time at Blair Senior Services, I've received: fair pay with cost of living increases, a nice benefit package (generous paid time off, health insurance with HRA, life insurance, disability insurance, super generous retirement package) opportunities for professional development and advancement, and nothing but respect and transparency in the workplace. Add in the positive, friendly work environment and the little things like free holiday lunches, thank-you gift cards, "cake days," etc. and this place become the workplace you look forward to walking into each day. The management team is excellent: they're driven and goal oriented with their main goal being serving Blair County seniors. Yes, employees are expected to work hard and pull their own weight, which I personally prefer. And sure, non-profits don't pay as much as for-profit businesses, but go work for a for-profit business and see if you get the time off you do at BSS. Not only that: at least you get to end your day knowing that you impacted the lives of others in a positive manner rather than putting money in the pocket of the owner of a business. Others who feel this is a bad employer make me wonder if they've ever worked anywhere else....if you think this is a bad place to work...go see more of the world...

    Cons

    None I can think of!

    I have been working at Blair Senior Services full-time

    Pros

    Can’t beat the coworkers that quickly turn into family. Ability to flex time is amazing. For a non profit they attempt to make up for it in things such as medical.

    Cons

    Everyone is a moving part to the higher ups unknown bigger plan as funding continues to be cut. Job security is a concern. You’re asked/told to do or play a role you didn’t sign up for.

    I worked at Blair Senior Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were great insurance benefits.

    Cons

    After approximately 1 year of employment at this agency, things began to change and change fast. The upper management promised multiple things, and never followed through. Staff are required to hold a big caseload, are micromanaged and are never rewarded for putting effort into their work when other individuals “go for appointments” at 1:00 and never return for their shift. Continuing financial issues will continue the need for lay-offs which just occurred 3 months ago. Be aware.
