Overall good company they had some issues of having enough people to work for them but the benefits of this job made it better
DSP/Manager (Current Employee), Provo, UTJuly 5, 2014
Pros: the fun events that i attended with the clients
Cons: the behaviors of the clients
I would have to say that they have the resources available for training and the skills to to train people very well but sometimes certain locations have certain set of skills that aren't taught in training that have to learned at the location of each house. At Chrysalis they sometimes seem desperate which makes it hard to know what their real desires – more... are or exceptions are. They treated their employees very well and made their clients their number one priority. I learned a lot of about how to work hard to keep up with 3 special means adults, 5 employees, directors, parents, doctors, support staff, coordinators, and behaviorist. Co- workers were often one of the good reasons to go to work and have a desire to stay when times were hard. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that I could make a difference in these 3 clients lives and see how they changed while I was in charge of their care. – less

Challenging and stimulating environment to work
Massage Therapist, Owner/Operator (Current Employee), Chesterton, INJune 11, 2014
Pros: able to set my own hours.
Cons: sometimes not having the time to schedule an appointment for every client that called.
Managing my own business was a daily adventure. No two days were ever the same. It was always a pleasure and privilege to administer to every client I had the opportunity to work with. The hardest part of the job would sometimes maintain a balance between work and play but all the time spent working with clients always made my time in the office enjoyable – more... and satisfying. – less

Very Unprofessional
Direct Support (Former Employee), Provo, UTJune 3, 2014
I would not tell my friends to work there. The company itself was set out to do great things. BUT the management and HR were not good. They did not seem to care about their employees or their individuals at all.

A successful non-profit committed to their goals and mission statement
Employment Specialist (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAMay 14, 2014
Pros: philanthropy, employment placement and mission statement
Cons: permanent employment
Productive professional experience, working environment and management team. The most challenging, yet enjoyable part of the job, was working with those of mental and physical disabilities. The task, duties and expectations, were those I look forward to exceeding while holding this title as a career.

Direct Support Staff (Former Employee), Provo, UTApril 16, 2014
Work place was dirty and co-workers/management were often difficult to work with. There was little room for growth and no incentive to push oneself.

If you like being on call 24/7 for part time work......
Staff (Former Employee), Price, UTMarch 14, 2014
Pros: some of the clients will steal your heart.
Cons: you are promised lots of activites to keep the clients busy, but the clients have to have "funds" and they never do.
Your hours vary greatly with this job. The company will classify you as part time but you will usually work full time with overtime (even though they say "no overtime"). You have to work 2 months straight with full time hours to be classified full time and to get the benefits. What usually happens though is you will have FT+ for about 4-6 weeks then – more... you will get 15-30hrs for 2-4 weeks then your 2 months have to start again.

You will also have many "surprise" meetings that you are expected to attend even if you have plans. Your schedule changes constantly so expect to have it changed with no more than 24hrs notice. So good luck on trying to make any plans with your life. – less

Pros: very fun and non-limiting.

No drama here generally, you do what your expected and everyone has a good time. They generally do not give a lot of full time positions however.

Very rewarding job.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee), Provo, UTFebruary 20, 2014
This job was a very rewarding job. I learned a lot from the individuals I worked with. What this company sets out to do is wonderful!
A typical day I would go in and get ready for my individuals to come home from their day programs. We would go over their days, do any paper work needs, an activity, meal preparation, and medications. Then it would be – more... time for them to get ready for bed. I learned to have compassion for others. That no matter the disability someone has, they are human and deserve love and respect.
The hardest part of the job is when one of out individuals would pass on. You grow to care for these people as your own family and losing them is very hard.
The most enjoyable part of the job was watching the individuals grow and learn. – less

I had a lot of great experiences working at Chrysalis
Manager (Former Employee), Cedar City, UTFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: the team work, time off, i felt safe even though there was danger. the people i worked with.
Cons: being called during time off, the volatile dangerous situations, parents if individuals could be hard to deal with at times.
I worked with people with disabilities. It was a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience. I made sure that employees were taught how to work with the people were served, what was expected and I made sure all of the individuals needs were met. Made sure they were properly fed, clothed and was involved with activities. There were times it was a volatile – more... place to work, as many of our individuals would lose control and we'd have to intervene. I worked with a great group of people as far as staffing. We were a true team, you don't know what team work is until you are united with a team that will step in to keep you safe and you do the same for them. As a manager, I was on call 24/7 and was called even though I was on vacation when things got volatile. I enjoyed seeing the successes that our individuals achieve as they grow. – less
