Pros

I love the work environment...open, fun, diverse, the type of experience you'd expect at a human services type non-profit but here it's done with a little more color and pop. Very, very good people working here, many of whom really care about what we do and take pride in their jobs. While not universal, I believe the workforce here is very estute and professional.

Cons

Senior management is set in their ways. 40 years of doing things the same way can be tough to overcome, but I think they need to face reality and modernize a bit. Reinventing the wheel never really works...it's round for a reason.

Advice to Management

Add some younger and newer folks to the management team and take the advice of people outside your own circle. It is okay to change - especially if the changes lead to a stronger business.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits are decent, the pay is average. Their group homes are nice and or have the potential to be nicer.

    Cons

    The hiring of family and friends within management and senior management is astonishing. You are not treated with any respect and humiliated in front of your peers. You can forget about voicing any ideas within the agency because if you do they will no longer be your own or shot down. It is a very disappointing company to work for with very low morale of staff and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother they wouldn't take it even if you beat them over the head with it. Treat people as you expect to be treated in return. Mr. Fishman should follow the advice and philosophy he gives in his book....The Experiment Isn't Working sweetheart.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    1. Supportive management.
    2. Opportunity to grow within the organization.
    3. Everybody get equal bonus - including the CEO and the management.
    4. The CEO gets 10 times the salary of the lowest paid full time employee!
    5. Very good place to work if you have less commitments in life.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits are very less. Pricey 401k fee - no company match.
    They still do a great job for being a non-profit.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very receptive to employee feedback. With the current economy they try to make it work as much as possible.
