    Pros

    Management is very down to earth and close with employees. Coworkers are great. Really good sense of community and they don't ask you to work beyond your hours. Definitely feel you are doing valuable work!

    Cons

    Pay is low for the type of work. But is to be expected for a nonprofit. Benefits are just okay.

    Advice to Management

    Would enjoy a more structured training plan for new employees to make sure all bases are covered.

    Pros

    Relationships you build with your clients is the absolute best part of the job. Everyday is new and day. The experience you gain working with the wonderful clients is amazing.

    Cons

    Benefits are high. Pay is completely unfair. Primaries work 24/7. Often answering phone calls for clients and other staff while at home and off the clock. All for PRN staff to make a $1 more an hour. PTO time is awful. 1.5 hours every two weeks is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your primaries a fair wage. They work hard and love their jobs. They deserve more in wages.
