    Pros

    Working with clients is rewarding
    Staff who provide direct client care are supportive of one another

    Cons

    Salaried positions consistently require 45+ hour work weeks
    Never fully staffed, with minimal support from management
    High turn-over for most positions

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those of us who are providing direct client care, we are being set up to fail and plenty of us have communicated this to our supervisors to no avail

    I have been working at Fraser full-time

    Pros

    Genuine care for clients. Open-door policy. Zero-tolerance for retaliation. Willingness to listen to employee concerns/complaints/comments/ideas. Free training to all employees, clients, and support teams.

    Cons

    HR is intimidating especially to entry-level employees, but also lower-level supervisors. Close to zero diversity in supervisors/managers/directors. Culture of hierarchy from direct-care employees to management rather than collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Consider culture in employee relations meetings. There is a huge need for greater diversity in supervisors and management. Much, much more diversity in management is needed.

    Pros

    AMAZING culture. People are kind, generous and collaborative. Room to grow in your job and flexibility of work schedule. Good benefits. Leadership who listens and wants to make change happen.

    Cons

    Rapid growth and expansion causing rapid change. Great opportunity to learn and grow. Lower salary than with for-profit but that's the nature of the game.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look into efforts involving training and how to help new staff grow in their abilities. Be present and recognize staff for their work.
