    Pros

    Super flexible hours, ability to work remotely, awesome co-workers.

    Cons

    Newer upper management schedules pointless meetings for EVERYDAY about how to get more work done, thus preventing you from getting actual work done.

    Advice to Management

    Let us do our jobs.

    Pros

    Good experience in ABA and working with children with autism

    The management staff is not great or professional. There is little room for growth unless you are getting your BCBA.

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

    Pros

    Social work is where I want to be. The small office environment is nice, and everyone is very supportive of each other. We really do get to help people.

    Cons

    Work load is excessive, but that's to be expected with a non profit. Really restrained with what you can do based on the budgets. Stressful job, not many tools, and some scary clients. No over time pay even when you're on call.

    Advice to Management

    More support staff!!! Have support staff for management as well. Communication gets set aside because of the workload.


  6. "Great Experience!"

    I worked at Judson Center full-time

    Pros

    Working with the kids is great, and the Summer Fun Program gives you great exposure to working with children with special needs

    Cons

    Pay was low, but worth the experience for a summer job

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

    Pros

    Great benefit package i,e; retirement plan. John Hancock life Insurance STD and Long term disability. Accrual of earned time off and sick leave. The company however, does have in place a few things for employee recognition and that is a plus. Overall Judson Center does have a true genuine purpose working with families and children with physical and mental in-capacities are God's greatest gifts....Caring and Helping.

    Cons

    Policy and procedures are out dated and desperately needs updated. Management aren't as knowledgeable as they should be. Procrastination often at times are front and center. The employees that the company has in the forefront are at times too relaxed in addressing potentially serious issues or concerns in a timely manner. Turn around time for a response from employee to supervisor is currently professionally unacceptable!

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more compassion and empathy for your employees. Not everyone is created to willingly help others in need. The best way regarding staff retention is to hire Supervisors that possess the natural qualities of compassion and empathy along with great leadership skills.

    I worked at Judson Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pros were that as a case manager and caring individual,I was able to assist those in need whom were truly looking for an opportunity to get their lives in order with needed resources,referrals,etc. I enjoyed seeing that the children who had been removed from their biology families were being well taken care of in short and long term situations.

    Cons

    The pay was so low,the Orkney load was horrid,there were no support workers to assist the casemanagers,so the case managers were not allowed the required desk time to do the necessary basic of the job, however more time was spend transporting,doing clerical work,and just overall stressing.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more supportive,more in tune with what their staff's needs. Management needs to also tame he wild foster parents and bio parents just be a basic mediator for their staff!!

    Pros

    The office environment was positive and everyone was welcoming and got along
    The culture of the company is truly centered around helping the people that they serve

    Cons

    The pay for employees is below market value.
    Most of the time I didn't know what I was supposed to do or I was given an obsolete task
    Spent a lot of time doing nothing and waiting for something to do
    I expecting more direction as an intern

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more so the organization is less of a revolving door
    Provide more instruction and higher level training to staff
