Great staff, poor leadership
Manager (Current Employee), SpringfieldFebruary 8, 2013
Pros: great training for support staff, and many dedicated employees who believe in the mission
Cons: hostile and ineffective executive director, poor compensation for management
This agency does a wonderful job focusing on the people they support, improving quality of life.

The higher leadership is hostile and punitive, which only adds stress to the support staff. I've witnessed the Executive Director pacing the hallways and yelling at other administrative employees. The level of training for management is almost nonexistent, – more... which results in poor supervision and leadership of support staff.

The Board of Directors is hardly involved in the operations of the agency, and only serve as a "rubber stamp" for the Executive Director.

I genuinely believe a change in Excutive Director could improve the organization. Having someone who is less punitive and more team oriented leading the agency could drastically improve working conditions for employees and living conditions for those served. – less

Great place to work, but pay<expectations
DSP (Current Employee), Springfield OregonFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: devoted employees and interesting people
Cons: punitive procedures which are ineffective rooting out bad staff and just cause resentment
If you end up in a good site, this is a great place to work, but the bad sites are full of incompetent, petty, and bitter people. It's unclear if management doesn't know how to fix it or can't because of the union.

Hard Place to work
Caregiver (Former Employee), Eugene, ORDecember 28, 2012
Pros: it is wonderfull to see life quality improve.
Cons: sometimes you get beat up.
This agency has a tendency to run you ragged. At first it was great the training is great, however there is an outstanding lack of teamwork and organization.
