    I worked at ResCare (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rescare has some bright and highly qualified professionals providing services for a fragile and challenging population.

    Cons

    Rescare is always understaffed and turn over is high. The day to day operations lack organization and structure. There is a culture of reactivity rather than proactivity.

    Advice to Management

    Meetings, tasks, and projects could be planned in advance for better outcomes. Although managment may provide measurable goals and targeted deadlines for major projects, there could be more effective processes in place to minimize the desperate and intense need for those projects. Management may be active in making sure projects accelerate, however, methods could be more organized, and motivational support could be increased. Although overall operational goals may have been met in certain areas, the impact the day to day actvities on the employees could be taken in to consideration to ensure postive morale, staff retention, and a desireable work environment.
