    I have been working at Stone Belt part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very rewarding. Great support system. You learn a lot about working with developmental disabilities which you can use for the rest of your life.

    Cons

    We were constantly short of staff which caused extra stress. High turnover. Long weekend shifts. Some situations were hard to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on staff morale. Have more relief options for stressed out staff, including part-time workers. Take personal interest in homes that need your help.

    I have been working at Stone Belt part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Clients are incredible, and coworkers are typically helpful given the environment and its demands. Wrap around services & employee assistance program are nice.

    Cons

    Management is less than professional. Pays significantly less than other area agencies by dollars on the hours. Hours are not flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate directly with employees.

    I worked at Stone Belt (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to positively impact lives of others.

    Cons

    Individuals who displayed poor performance and attitudes were often rewarded and recognized by HR and CEO. Staff and management who were dedicated and worked diligently were often weeded out. Horrible benefit package and no 401k match.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on clients not on personal growth and keeping executive team's interest a priority.

    Pros

    Really enjoy making a difference in someone's life, can burn out easily emotionaly an physically from having to assist the same clients with high behaviors so much that you dread going to work..

    Cons

    Stuck doing same duties with same clients each and every week in rooms with no windows, bad odors because clients with bad hygiene are not showered before coming into program!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff that they need moved to other areas of program with different client or can quickly burn out

    I worked at Stone Belt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stone Belt does a fantastic job caring for its consumers -- the individuals that you'll work with are spectacular and there are many, many dedicated employees. It's a terrific organization, and the clinical team is second to none.

    Cons

    Just like any not-for-profit, there are budget constraints, and you'll work with amazing folks and people who are there for a paycheck. But compared to most residential providers, Stone Belt has their act together.

    I have been working at Stone Belt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    LOVED working with the developmental disability community. I personally liked most of my peers and supervisors.

    Cons

    I felt that management was too much in the mindset of "punishing" staff. We were taught to "make a teachable moment" when working with consumers, but every staff mistake was met with a punitive action.

    Advice to Management

    BE more proactive with staff help them learn how to do their job better rather than tell them how bad they are when they make a mistake.

    I have been working at Stone Belt full-time

    Pros

    There are lots of good people at the ground level who really care about doing their jobs well.

    Rewarding work.

    Cons

    Direct Support Professionals are treated by management as unintelligent and replaceable.

    Direct care is a stressful job that not everyone is cut out for.

    Low wages.

    Also, paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so obsessed with quantity and indifferent to quality of programming.

    DSPs don't need to be told what to teach; they need training on how to teach.

    Don't invest so much in new hires; put that money into those who have stayed with the company--train them better, and pay them better.
