    Treat staff like human beings, show appreciation to your staff and they will work twice alas hard! Don't insult staff in front of other staff

    I have been working at Old Colony Elder Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The building is beautiful, clean, and comfortable, minimal expenses spared. The pay is competitive, the benefits are good, and time off is great. There is an option to work from home 1 day a week after 6 month probation period, and an option to have a flex schedule, to have a 4 day work week, after an additional 6 months. Most people are friendly. Consumers are appreciative of your help and are nice.

    Cons

    Old school management, many managers only have their bachelors degree and have not continued their education. Some department heads oversee many departments, forcing their views and rules on those departments. Some departments are clicky. Being in a small department makes it difficult to utilize flex week or work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Perform more thorough interviews. Have an open mind when other staff make suggestions to better the programs. Continue education.
