    I have been working at Upstate Cerebral Palsy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the individuals is rewarding. And u can make a difference.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible for what you got to do, and put up with. The management is horrible. RC's are unapriciated and bounced around like they don't matter. And the higher up's only get involved over situations that can mess with their money.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Was there over 10 years.

    Cons

    Worked in herkimer site for mental health, was run out of there, hr is of no help. Alot of backstabbing. They use you until they dont need you anymore. Arc and ddso are way better of an organization.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your hr dept. They only care about the directors and higher up people. Its a shame

    great experience when entering a career, health/psych field experience helps
