Pros: internal review system, bottom of the barrel health benefits, but at least it's something
Cons: poor, non-professional management styles, constant change, no stability for kids
A typical day at work was that you just never knew what the day would hold. This is consistent while working with children in need of these services. However, the turnover rate was horrible and this put a ton of stress on the employees left behind. Also, they regularly change policies and tack on extra duties without compensating for the work.
I learned – more... that although there is an open door policy after failed attempts to resolve an issue - anyone who felt the need to have a conversation with someone at the main office, were shunned or experienced repercussions that were not worth the attempt to get an issue resolved. Management says that they will provide opportunities to all employees who demonstrate excellence in their position, but I found that promotion, starting pay and pay increases seem to follow the same pattern for certain persons and not others.
They have an excellent internal review process & team that helps keep the workplace up to par. The company does try to ensure that the state laws, licensure, and Human Rights guidelines are followed. But the work place hostility and turmoil throughout the company, in my experience, overshadow that they are at least trying to do what they are supposed to do as a licensed provider. If possible take a pass or just prepare for bad attitude and lots of yelling, smoke and mirrors. – less
