    Pros

    Each local region looks very different to serve each community so it's hard to write a accurate review.

    Cons

    As each regional area is very unique there can be a big difference between the successful offices and the less successful ones.

    I worked at Providence Service as a contractor

    Pros

    Most of the employees are very friendly, open and willing to help at a moment's notice. The company has been improving year after year & I can only see that continuing. The company itself does good work, and it feels good to be part of something larger than oneself.

    Cons

    The pay system isn't always perfect. Like other areas, it's gotten better over the years but could still use some improvement. The benefits aren't the best around, but in my experience that's pretty normal these days. Many employees go far too long without a pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the 'regular Jill (and Joe)' a bit more, and be sincerely willing to find ways to implement employee suggested improvements


  3. "It has been an interesting entry level position, serving as a mentor."

    Pros

    As a mentor, you set your own schedule and you have the opportunity to be a positive role model in kids' lives.

    Cons

    The pay isn't that great as a mentor. Also, there are some risks associated with spending time with troubled adolescents and you often experience violence, profanity, and poor behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Management within the company should more actively seek out college students by participating in career fairs and other various activities to get the company's name out there.
