    Potentially great

    Oct 11, 2022 - Direct Support Crisis Specialist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Unmatched benefits Great pay for DSP work with the option of as much overtime at you want (also see in cons) Great staff who are often supportive and doing what they can to make others lives better. Supporting interesting and amazing individuals to be able to live their best lives.

    Cons

    Limited ability to promote from this position without outside experience. (There are no positions within the agency that you can promote to with only DSCS experience) Can have an overwhelming amount of overtime. Can be difficult to make necessary appointments due to last minute mandatory overtime. This has cost me 100s of dollars in cancelation fees. Lack of resources to help individuals stabilize so sometimes it feels like we are completely useless. We have very few in house services, and the ones we do have are unstructured and not regulated.
