Great mission. Extremely poor executive leadership.
Manager (Former Employee), Rochester, NYAugust 6, 2014
Pros: focus on civil rights
Cons: toxic, vindicitive work enviorment
The CEO is parnaoid and vindicitve which affects all departments and their ability to complete the mission. The CEO's mother works there and is mean to staff and eveyone is afraid of her.
This is a Ma and Pa shop that grew past the leadership abilites of their CEO. If you do not want to constantly have to look behind your back don't work there, especailly – more... if you are middle management. – less

Great place to work
Aide (Former Employee), Rochester, NYMay 30, 2014
Pros: they involve aides as well as their clients. saved the community 2 million dollars (not any more)
Cons: i can't work there anymore. :(
I loved working with this organization. They brought a philosophy that most companies just say blah, blah, blah. But, this organization believes what it says, they do things to teach people that are disabled to stand up or rather, sit up and speak out when things aren't right. They treated us well, once a year bonus, sick days, vacation days, and even – more... a 401(k) and medical benefits !! For many people that are single parents, it's a great deal !!
I felt I could make a difference with spreading the message that certain entrances aren't great and why keep out people in wheelchairs and those with canes? – less

It's a very friendly place to work for.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee), Geneva, NYFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: it was in her house so it made her comfortable and me to.
Cons: that my services were no longer needed and not being able to care for her anymore.
A typical day at work was getting my client ready for the day. What i learned was how a person can interact with one another without being able to talk. Management was wonderful and very understanding. Hardest part of the job was having to leave and not seeing her everyday when my services weren't needewd any more. The most enjoyable part of my job – more... was interacting with her and making sure she was well takin care of. – less

Taking out the consumers into the community where they would like to go. I learn about the consumers over all goals that they want to accomplish.

I don't see that anything – more... is hard, yes a challenge, but nothing to difficult do i see. The most enjoyable part is to see the consumer happy with my performance and to see that they are progressing and happy. – less
