    I worked at MOKA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The residents and some of the staff are amazing and become like family.

    Cons

    The biggest problem is that if you do your job well, you get to do the work of 3 people due to turnover and burnout. The intense pressure of being on-call 24/7 while only getting a measly salary is very demotivating. Not a lot of growth potential.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like batteries that you can just burn out and replace.

    Pros

    You get to work with so many amazing people. Everyday is different. Not easy but will make you a better person.

    Cons

    Hard to separate your work life and everyday life, very emotionally challenging at times. You will not make much money.

    Pros

    Great Company, very supportive, always open to new ideas, great benefits, awesome management team. CEO is the most humble and friendly person I have ever met.

    Cons

    Pay scale is low, raises are across the board instead of merit based

    I have been working at MOKA part-time

    Pros

    The pro is that you can help people with disabilities, and help them become an important part of society.

    Cons

    24/7 coverage, almost no time off, lots of training, minimal pay. You get pto but it has to be approved 2 months in advance, and seniority gets first dibs. No holidays.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to take better care of employees. I do 3 jobs and don't get paid a dime extra. It's not something I want to do for the rest of my life.

    Pros

    MOKA offers flexible work schedules and calm relaxing work environment. This allows for you to take this job on as part-time. Good decentralized decision making process that involves all levels of employees.

    Cons

    Poor pay and limited ability to move up the ladder. The pay cap and now cancelled 401k matching does not encourage longevity.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the staff more money and provide better benefits package to your employees. Create room for upward mobility.
