    I worked at Friendship Community full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I worked for FC ten years. In that time I built many relationships with clients and some coworkers. The health insurance coverage is good, if a bit slow to pay. Time off is generous and after ten years, I had five weeks paid vacation.

    Cons

    House Managers are stressed out much of the time. The corporate folks are mostly out of touch with their employees. Two years ago, there was a raise in base pay for new employees, but no raise for long term employees, though they promised to look into it. When people complained, corporate couldn't understand why this was a problem, even insulting. When your direct care workers max out at 11.50 an hour, and your CEO makes six figures, you are completely out of touch with your employees you need to rethink.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Build bridges between the corporate side and the direct care side, unless of course you want to keep losing long term employees.

    Pros

    The pros about this company is you get to meet individuals and develop a relationship with each one and their familie, and help assist them with their every day needs.

    Cons

    The cons to this company is there is poor leadership. Each home has their issues but nothing seems to be addressed. I worked in one of the group homes where one of the individuals was moved out of the home for no reason but because the program didn't benefit her anymore. If you are looking for a company to grow in this is not the company for you unless you are a "teacher's pet." I attended the yearly banquet last year, and the theme was "love" in the power point there was not one caregiver in the PowerPoint and it was mainly the CEO and her assistant. I went to HR several times complaining of issues that had happened in the home with the coordinator, and nothing was done. In fact, the time I was there the coordinator bullied one of the supervisors to the point where she left the company. This company mission and values are very misleading and my advice would be do not apply unless there is massive improvement.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs improve especially towards the care of the team members and individuals
