    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Bair Foundation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with foster parents and kids. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Top heavy management, too much work expected/required for the worker but management does not help. They have time to spare. They expect you to work 50 plus hours per week and say you can ‘flex’ your time, but there is too much to do so you don’t get to flex the overage. In the VB office no one makes sure things have been done correctly until an audit and then they only focus on fixing the mistakes. They don’t check regularly to see that things are done correctly so licensure visits are awful. Very poor communication in the VB office and company in general. All the negatives disrupt foster parents and therefore the kids. I do not recommend- you will not grow. Too much backstabbing. Your supervisor does not have your back.
