    I have been working at Uplift Family Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Wonderful benefits such as 401k - employer will match 4%, tuition reimbursement, Delta Dental, Kaiser, life insurance, etc. This is the smallest amount I've had to contribute to have Kaiser for my kids and I. 2. Supportive upper management. 3. Hardworking team.

    Cons

    No complaints at this time.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time.

  2. Positive environment and competitive benefits.

    I worked at Uplift Family Services full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The work environment fostered positivity, team work, recognition, and employee voice. Management fosters employee growth and values self-care. The medical benefits are exceptional. There are lots of opportunities for travel and mileage is reimbursed (if you have a fuel efficient car, you can make extra money on mileage).

    Cons

    Serving families with difficult backgrounds can be emotional and stressful.
