    Pros

    The individuals and nothing else

    Cons

    People Inc is offering compensation to management and HR reps if they post fake positive reviews on this site. Don't fall for it!

    What it's really like:

    Rampant sexual harassment. Male staff are favored and if you report it to HR the male HR rep actually laughs at you.

    Inappropriate relationships between managers and staff. Sexual relationships happening on-site and around individuals.

    Managers are not held accountable for their actions. If a house has high employee turn over, look at the manager, you will find the problem.

    Managers act like high schoolers. I have worked at several houses and it was all the same.

    Managers are barely at work. The last house I worked for, the manager showed up one week a month.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of the male directors. Not one of them is professional or appropriate.

    HR is incredibly inappropriate. Send them all for extensive training or fire them.

    Require ALL managers and team leader attend a lengthy training on professionalism and team leading.

    I have been working at People Inc. (NY) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working with individuals who need you.

    Cons

    Too much drama that is allowed from management upto and including HR. Over worked due to high turn over. High turn over that is unnecessary. Most are pushed out the door. I have personally witnessed phenomenal workers whom felt they had to leave or were literally bullied to the point they were forced to leave. HR needs to investigate more and so does the CEO. Why are your employees really leaving? Why have good workers left? They only listen to the immediate management, which I can guarantee their word is completely false. Abusive atmosphere especially in the southtowns. I have seen so much that it is actually sickening. You never feel appreciated, pay is low, and they make cuts continually to the direct care associates. You never feel like you do good enough. Inappropriate relationships between management and staff outside of work and inside of work. Unsafe and threatening work enviroments. I do not recommend working for this company. There is a lot that is great, but it is not because of the company and their values. It is only great in the area of relationships built with individuals. The constant turn over is abusive to the individuals, whether upper management, HR, CEO, etc... want to acknowledge it. This is just a small glimpse. I am bothered by what I have witnessed. Some investigating needs to be done please. Let's even try to get some of the good workers back.

    Advice to Management

    If you can't be professional, move on. All management needs to be retrained, switched/rotated to different houses. Appreciate your staff.
