    Pros

    staff that truly cares for the clients

    Cons

    awful managemnt .no opportunity for growth. low pay meaning you will need to get a second job. coming to work you dont know what kind of day youll have.clients have behavior and stress from managemnt. its just too much. the clients depend on you for everything. eating,cooking,bathing and thats not including worrying about your own family and house. if your co worker is lazy well you have to pick up his slack or you could get fired. awful awful place to work...people are quitting everyday month or so .because its just too much... if your a hard worker manager will work you to death until you quit..alot of favoritism ..manager dont really care for you

    Advice to Management

    be kind to staff because we do alot of the work
    staff opinion matter because we are the ones with the clients and we know them
    management come to work and lock themselves in the office because the job gets overwhelming at times.
    they dont like helping with toileting ( they get so angry) i wish you could see their faces
