    I have been working at Fraser full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, great opportunities, and some flexibility with scheduling. Some supervisors are great and supportive!

    Cons

    Some supervisors are micromanagers, too much paperwork, communication is not clear, a supervisor can drastically make/break your experience here.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they're part of a team with leaders instead of bosses. Supervisors who don't trust their supervisees tend to lose them pretty quickly.

    Pros

    friendly work environment, positive co-workers, ideas are listened to and appreciated, management invests time in training, ability to work independently and collaborate with others, tend to promote from within,

    Cons

    non-profit in human services means compensation isn't as high as one might hope, no other major concerns, and the first concern is completely understandable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower your employees and provide opportunities to grow and learn. Continue to invest in programs that are succeeding and work on increasing efficient systems.

    I have been working at Fraser full-time

    Pros

    Fraser is a great company to work for. They seek to promote a culture that is collaborative and focused on their mission (serving individuals and families affected by a disability). Their passion and commitment is refreshing, I would highly recommend pursuing a career at Fraser.

    Cons

    The workload can be overwhelming. At times you must work with individuals and providers who are difficult and may not understand their role in the client's care.

    - supporting folks with disabilities and their families
    - ensuring a better quality of life for those often overlooked

    Cons

    - understaffed
    - low wages
    - little/no support from supervisor
    - unreasonable expectations surrounding working hours
    - poor communication from HR

    Advice to Management

    - Create more comprehensive training for all levels of employment within each division
    - Provide opportunities for feedback of supervision from multiple levels, not just above, to get a larger understanding of perspectives of the positions and the performance of those in them

    I have been working at Fraser full-time

    Pros

    The work is rewarding and I share the values of Fraser. It's a great place to get your feet wet after graduation. There are some really lovely people employed here. Fast growth as an organization. Lots of PTO (over 5 weeks for full time employees).

    Cons

    Very high turnover at most levels of the organization.
    Wages are low, raises from annual review barely cover cost of living and increases to health insurance premiums. The health plan has improved but isn't spectacular. Some processes are a mess but clinical services keep expanding faster than issues can be fixed. Large enough nonprofit that there is a fair amount of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people at the bottom. Let their voices be heard to improve policies. Changes seem to be top down by directors and management that have little experience dealing with the processes that their seeking to improve. Focus on quality staff retention. More opportunities for advancement.

    I have been working at Fraser full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Set your own schedule, lots of continuing education, clinical breadth, gain a strong foundation for compliance expectations.

    Cons

    Heavy workloads, productivity expectations after employment are different than described in intrrview, inflexible, unwieldy processes, astoundingly inefficient, the most laborious and cumbersome medical record system I have experienced. Pathetic raised.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the people working for you are human beings. That Fraser is not going to change in response to staff concerns is itself concerning. That the attitude is known by staff is discouraging. I will leave as quickly as feasible. You do not value seem to value your emloyees.
