A lot of opportunities within the company. HR and Management are very approachable and accommodating.

Some staff may be difficult to work with within the particular program you are placed (ie, lazy, uneducated, or just don't care about the consumers and just want a pay check)

    I have been working at Community Residences Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The individuals supported are absolutely extraordinary. Just like most other group home settings, it is fairly routine, so aside from emergency crisis situations, you know what to look forward to.

    Cons

    CR is all about image. What looks good and keeps money rolling in. Basically have to be a con artist to survive here.

    Advice to Management

    Get in and get out. It is great professional experience, but no one should spend more than 3-5 years in one position here. Move up or move out.

    Pros

    Healthy work environment overall with a strong culture of support. Good people who are vested into improving the lives of the people in the community. Flexibility with schedules, career opportunity and trainings.

    Cons

    Pay is below average. Like with most companies, what the headquarter thinks looks good on paper with regards to program goals, processes, etc... is not really transferrable or practical to the real work that is expected and done in the programs. Staffing / screening process for new hires has gotten better but still needs to improve. The lack of space for the staff at each program/facility. Without adequate offices, the challenges of cultivating an environment that promotes professionalism among the staff, is greatly compromised.

    Advice to Management

    Continue counting on the information and relationships with the people who actually work at the programs and less on the ideas written on paper up at headquarters. Other than this minor reflective comment... I think management is doing an above average job.
