    Pros

    Very lenient with PTO
    Not very many people you won't get along with
    A lot of locations so depending on where you're at is where you'll most likely be

    Cons

    Certain jobs don't have very much room to move up, more lateral moving.

    Advice to Management

    If theres not much room to move up then allow for better increases. This can be hard though until the economy improves.

    I have been working at Kennedy Krieger Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very hard work and out of this world experiences, people will not be able to relate to you or understand the work you do and that's what makes this job so special. Because you're doing one of a kind work and helping children and others with autism and behavioral disorders that are extreme cases from around the world.

    Cons

    Hard work. Be humble. Prepare to be a father or mother in training, you'll be picking up and cleaning your patient, and more likely yourself of your patient's pee, vomit, poop, and God knows what else. If something like this can turn you off, don't bother. It is an acquired skill to tolerate all these and definitely possible. Very stressful at the beginning but you get used to it, and stress goes down after 3 months.

    Advice to Management

    The more rules, the less the job is enjoyable.
