    I have been working at Individual Advocacy Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I’ve been employed at IAG for eighteen years. When I came here I started as the lower level. IAG is a place that if you care and work hard, you can move up and be prideful. Since I’ve been here it’s always been fair, my head CEO has given me a chance to grow in lots of ways. Also Dr. Bennett, she’s thoughtful to your needs, as well as making easier for you to stay employed. But I love my job, the individuals and my work...

    Pros

    I appreciate the level of professionalism here. Everyone at the office works as team and is like a family. When supplies or equipment is needed, there is no hesitation. I feel appreciated. Because of the teamwork and everyone pitching in, the people we support are well cared for in terms of their health/medically. IAG caters to what the people we support really want, not just what we think they want.

    Cons

    I have not come across any cons of working here so far.

    I have been working at IAG for over 11 years and I have to say, I have never been prouder to work for an agency on a whole.
