I have been working at EDSI full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The organization sincerely cares about people - staff and participants and customers served. This is evidenced in decisions made and the overall "feel" of the company. EDSI's culture is friendly, warm and sincere. I believe in its mission and values. There is a family feel felt throughout the organization. The strengths based leadership team listens and seeks solutions . Staff truly makes a difference in the lives of participants served. Each person has a job description and outline of goals to attain,and team members have the opportunity to be as creative as possible in the delivery of services to participants.

Cons

Team members have the opportunity to be even more innovative and creative in finding solutions to assist customers when contractual obligations may appear to limit the desired outcomes. Flexibility and rescourcefulness of staff is welcomed.

Advice to Management

It is exciting to be part of an organization that continues to grow and expand and seek diversification of services and populations served.

    I have been working at EDSI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flex scheduling
    Attempting to help people

    Cons

    The training program is non-existent. It appears as if upper management believes they can operate haphazardly and still have good morale.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job. If you have 15 years of experience, offer insight. Don't ask me to solve problems you should have the answer to. Why reinvent the wheel?

    Pros

    Culture - staff members consider each other "family"

    Many employees have been with the company over 10 years which is really a testament to how well the company treats its employees

    Great work-life balance - CEO and upper management are dedicated to their families and encourage a healthy work-life balance

    Company continues to diversify and grow

    Company encourages continuous improvement ideas from all employees; all contributions are reviewed and many implemented in the company.

    CEO is compassionate and willing to talk one-on-one with any of the company's 400 staff members

    Company contributes to many charitable organizations every year because they are passionate about the causes - not just because they feel they "have to do it"

    Cons

    As the company continues to grow, staff in division offices across eight states sometimes feel disconnected from the main headquarters

    Many of our contracts are government-funded and when the contract ends, there is uncertainty about whether the contract will be renewed and staff retained

    Advice to Management

    Continue the communication loop among all offices so employees do not feel disconnected. Continue to hold "Town Hall" meetings on a regular basis to update employees on the main initiatives of the company.
