    Pros

    The individuals are awesome. Company offers great benefits. Invision offers excellent training.

    Cons

    3rd block needs to have unannounced visits and monitoring from supervisors. Most 3rd block employees do not spend time on helping the individuals with achieving their goals and use their work time for their own advantage and not the individuals advantage since the supervisors do not do weekend visits. Supervisors MUST do unannounced monitoring and visits on the weekends to make sure that 3rd block is doing their job....

    Advice to Management

    You really need to have weekend supervisors specifically in the Hummlestown and Harrisburg areas do visits. You will be surprised to see what goes on during block 3. Your team leaders need more training! Many are very unqualified ti do their jobs!

    Cons

    You are expected to stay overnight without pay at the individuals home. Coworkers and supervisors can be very unproffesional with their interactions with individuals and other staff. There are a lot of cliques, crossing boundaries, and inappropriate relationships between support staff and supervisors so when a long time DSP is crossing boundaries, not doing their job accordingly or working well with other co-workers the...

    Advice to Management

    It is normal to develope friendships in a work place but, importantly you all must remember your roles as supervisors and managers. Good leaders are impartial and look at situations from all sides. Mabey offering 8 hour shifts instead of block shifts for the harder to staff more challenging individuals will help keep those individuals homes staffed since 56 hour block shifts is a lot of hours to be spending with an individual...
