AwfulMay 25, 2023 - Direct Support Professional (DSP)RecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The best part about this job is that with my work 60 hour weeks against my will, I accumulated a lot of sick and vacation time.
They for you to work if someone doesn’t show up for work. I understood that it needed to happen, but it gets out of hand at an average of 60 hours a week. No support from any level of this company The conversations they have in upper management zoom conversations made me want to scream from how disregarding they are to employees feelings. No raise for anyone even after years of working there. There employe reviews are not serious.

Work LIfeMay 31, 2023 - Residential Supervisor in Queens, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Standard direct support job like any other company. Company used to pay for employees insurance but no longer.
Standard cons of working in a direct support role. Short staff all around.

Birds of a featherFeb 20, 2023 - NYSTART Coordinator in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great onboarding training, room for advancement because the company is massive, and decent pay.
Management and HR stick together. So HR protects the image of the company and the the employees by covering for abusive management. Managers will call you to be disrespectful and give conflicting orders, then email you in the kindest way possible as though they're collaborative. Managers will pull you from traveling to your client just to make you come to the office for a 5 minute meeting about something that can be an email. A manager forced someond to stay in her office after their work hours knowing they'll be late to pick up their child from school. Someone had a doctor's note for bronchitis and was accused of faking. If you speak up, managers retaliate and create a hostile work environment.Continue reading

Work environmentApr 5, 2023 - Direct Support Professional (DSP) in Brooklyn, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
THE RESIDENTS ARE VERY VERY LOVEABLE. They have excellent training for workers
Work environment is a hostile one if they don’t like u. Everyone goes back and forth on who has to clean the people we support. The supervisor is hardly there and she DOES NOT take any of the complaints seriously her only advice is “see what’s wrong with you” even though this happened to ALLLLL NEW STAFF. Also pay raises u only get if you pass evaluation and there is no room for growth thereContinue reading

Org with a great legacy but sad current stateJan 26, 2023 - Coordinator in New York, NYRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Benefit package at the time was great, progressive department and caring leadership at the department level .
There is a huge gap between what is put forward when words vs actual reality . If you value front line staff and managers - show it . When your dsp makes 15x less than the ceos annual salary it’s hard to believe that front line staff are respected . Management tolerated bad behavior at the executive level that is not only hypocritical but toxic to the work environment but also takes time and energy from the actual work of supporting people with disabilities .Continue reading
