  1. "Great people with great benefits"

    5.0
     
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IndependenceFirst

    Pros

    I love working for a place that helps people live independently in the community. The benefits are great! People are great! Building is 100% accessible and over half the employees and board have a disability. People are respected and genuinely care about you.

    Cons

    Wish I would have found it sooner.

    The company don't communicate good with their employees. They are quick to send a letter in the mail instead of taking a few moments on the phone or in person to talk to you. plus the orientation could a be shorter.
