    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    -Great Health Insurance
    -Casual dress-code
    -Flexible schedule (depending on supervisor)
    -Great for people with little/no experience, lots to learn in the healthcare field, looks good on resume

    Cons

    -Extreme low pay (barely above minimum wage for most employees)
    -high turnover for employees in residences and day programs
    -constant new hires, not good for clients with mental disabilities to see new faces every single day, hard for the client to develop trust
    -some staff are very unprofessional/lazy
    -a lot of finger-pointing,tattle tails.
    -little/no recognition given
    -non-existent 401K plan for new hires
    -way too many "supervisors" and "VP's", (way too many Chiefs, than Indians) making it extremely hard to get projects completed
    -over-staffed in some departments
    -Just another company trying to get as much money from the government with no improvements to the company or its clients
    -ZERO morale

    Advice to Management

    Hire competent people and pay them more, starting salary of $9.00/hr for a person over the age of 20 is not realistic(McDonald's pays more) plus its insulting and cruel. Stop giving Senior staff "just because" bonuses. Believe in "Quality over Quantity rule" it'll save you from getting constant complaints from the clients and family members, as well as eliminating the high turnover problem.
    Invest in company outings and activities, it'll increase morale and relationships, making people wants to work there, rather than people working there and later leaving.
