Exciting and interesting place to work
Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WADecember 5, 2016
Amazon web services is a great company to work for. They're cognizant of your work life balance and accepting of maintaining a balance. You're constantly working on interesting projects. You have lots of resources at your disposal. Low on external perks (free/cheap lunches)

This company was terrible.
Direct support professional (Former Employee) –  Columbus, INFebruary 26, 2015
The Project Coordinator was very unreliable at taking care of any issues employees had. The shift you work is constantly changing, and you will get called in everyday because someone didn't show up. If you need a day off and find your own coverage, they would be calling to tell you that you need to come in because something is wrong. Most of the employees just sit outside and smoke. Employees make clients do things they don't want to do, and have no concerns for them whatsoever. I had a supervisor tell me to lie to a clients guardian about the meds they had or had not received. I would work 16 hours shifts with 4 wheel chair clients BY MYSELF! Not only is the hard on me, but also on the clients, as I was not able to give them all of the attention they needed. Terrible company. Constant drama.
Pros
none
Cons
Everything

Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) –  Saint Marys, OHJanuary 27, 2015
If you enjoy being around fun loving clients AWS is the place for you. It is a rewarding job working with people with developmental disabilities. There are great highs and emotional lows. But through everthing it is worth the out come. The hardest part is when you have to move on to another postion or place of employment. Working with people you build a bond and change can be difficult.

Day program where clients come and receive services including assitance with activities, meals, toileting, and medication.
A.Wayne Administrative Teacher (AWAT) (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INDecember 15, 2014
My mornings consist of helping clients off the transportation vehicles and guiding them into the building. After consumers have gotten situated activities are provided for them. Examples of activities that the clients engage in are card games, crafts, sensory games, movies, and music. Lunch is served and then medicine is administered. Before we wind down staff members make sure that the consumers have been toileted and are ready for home. The last few task of the day are making sure the consumers have all their items to go home and filling out their books stating what they did for the day.
Pros
Interaction with clients
Cons
Low pay
