    Pros

    Kennedy Krieger offers a great benefits package including tuition reimbursement, computer purchase assistance, live near your work programs, and good health and dental insurance. The institute is very large and offers a wide range of jobs. The population served is very deserving, which provides the employees with a sense of importance. It's not just a paycheck.

    Cons

    Some jobs could be considered high stress and time off is not always easy to receive. Promotions are sometimes given to preferred people as opposed to the right person for the job

    Advice to Management

    Please provide more support for high stress jobs. Just like you, we work hard. Sometimes we need a "mental health day".

    I worked at Kennedy Krieger Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    very rewarding if you like the population you're working with, very up-to-date on current research and evidence-based practices, sites that receive more funding (like CARD) treat their employees very well, good benefits. My rating to recommend to a friend is with conditions (depends on which position they would be applying for)

    Cons

    depending on the site/ the funding, the direct-care-workers (aides) do not get treated as well as employees in "higher" positions, low pay

    Advice to Management

    invest in direct care workers, they are the people that have the most contact with the students/ clients
