DSP (Former Employee), Kokomo InJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: helping clients.
Cons: being a scapegoat, terrible management, no breaks
I worked at this company for a number of years. the management is absolutely awful. I have never met such vindictive back stabbing people in my entire life. they smile in your face and as soon as you turn your back they're talking about you, cutting your hours, and making your work life miserable. they expect you to bend over backwards for them and – more... they won't even lift a finger for you. there is no chance of advancement and no raises are ever given out. – less

Not a good place to work...at all.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee), Kokomo, INOctober 19, 2013
Pros: helping others, learning experience, decent starting pay
Cons: poor management, uneven treatment, miminal job security, bad hours
I know a lot of people get vindictive after being terminated; however, I am not one of those. I am not the only person completely appalled by this company, and not the only person who got taken advantage of and then fired. Bona Vista is a great program for developmentally disabled individuals, and it is rewarding to help these people. However, the entire – more... company is an awful disaster. Management from the top to the bottom is disorganized and uninformed, they know next to nothing about the clients, and employees are typically treated pretty poorly, though they certainly play favorites. My personal experience, I had worked for the company for four months, only one med error for dropping a pill (yes, Direct Support Professionals are responsible for passing meds). I got promoted to full-time and was praised for my job performance; I was suspended a week later without any explanation as to why, then a week after that, I was terminated, again with no explanation. And I am far from the only one who has had an experience like to this. Bona Vista offers great services for its clients, but it truly is a terrible work environment. This shows in the number of people who quit and Bona Vista is reaching out desperately for employees because people are sharing their experiences to inform others. Would definitely not recommend working for them. – less

good place to work
residental advisor (Current Employee), Kokomo, INApril 16, 2013
I have learned a lot from this job the hardest part about this job is saying goodbye, the management on the other hand was unorganized and unfair, it was times where you felt like you were working so hard and not getting the appreciation that you deserve, but overall it was is a great place to work and if I had to do it over again I surely will.

rewarding place to work
Early Head Start- Child Development Specialist (Former Employee), Kokomo, INJanuary 10, 2013
A typical day is very busy with many responsibilities to maintain. I have learned many things especially that this place will be nice to you if are politically correct, and kiss butt. My co workers were really nice and we had to be a team. Management is two faced and back stabbing.
