      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits, great co-workers, good retirement, good environment to work in.

      Cons

      No communication between the SLC city office and other offices. No contact from the upper management. Never left their SLC City office to come meet people in other offices. No recogniziation of other offices from the main office. When cuts had to be made, they alway cut people in other offices, never the main office because they know them, and it made it easier to let go of people they have no relationships with. Lack of getting critical information out to other offices.

      Direct Support Professional

      Oct 15, 2016 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I loved people I worked with and even my Program Leader was awesome. Upper management was not the best but, I have never worked for company were upper management was your best friend. I loved working with loved the friendships I had. They offer a great benefits package which is affordable to most employees and dependents. Laid back environment were you make a difference. great schedules and hopefully coworkers who will work with you. Lots of paid time off and sick days. Room for advancement if you want it which will help with the pay.

      Cons

      The pay at the time was okay for a Direct Support Professional $10.80 and now is $11.10 if I'm not mistaken. It is 2016 and They should be offering more in the range of $12 an hour if they want to hire and keep their people.
