    Pros

    Great co-workers and pays better than most social service positions.

    Cons

    HR is EXTREMELY unorganized and the overall corporate structure is complete unprofessional. No one is on the same page and you constantly have one director telling you to do something and a day later the other director is telling you not to.

    Advice to Management

    Get your Directors and supervisors all on the same page. The workers are suffering because management has no idea what they're doing and it's extremely unorganized
