Great mission, dedicated staff, but management is working through transitions and challenges.
VP - Communications & Business Strategy (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 30, 2017
Fair place to work. Don't look for much advancement. As of Fall 2017 undergoing search for new CEO, so perhaps management will change. Focus on the mission of helping individuals with disabilities. Be wary of trusting management team unless you're jumping to their tune.

I worked for Milwaukee Center for Independence in 2015 in a intern position, I worked for the most friendly and kind supervisor. I enjoyed the experience and look forward to working for MCFI again in the future.

Manager (Current Employee) – West Allis, WI – September 27, 2017
At Whole Health Clinical group all the managers are approachable and willing to help. They remain flexible and yet help everyone to stay productive. It's easy to communicate with who you need to because everyone works so closely together. The culture keeps getting better the longer I work here. The integrated atmosphere allows you to get many perspectives and have many people with different expertise's.

Case Manager and Client Coordinator (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 24, 2017
This job is a good starting point to get experience. It is a fast paced, high energy environment. There is no career advancement opportunities. Hours are flexible but weekend/weeknight hours are required. Interaction with clients is daily.
no sick time, underpaid, unrealistic job expectations
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 24, 2017
it starts out great then everything they tell you not to talk about the permanent employees are holding discussions about ...example politics, bedroom life, all types of other things that shouldn't be discussed at work mainly backstabbing other employees especially if the other employees have a brain they're the ones that are mostly treated unfairly, pay is horrible for what you have to put up with.
Finance (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 20, 2017
HR/PR strives to promote friendly diverse culture and initiatives; internal management not on board. Petty, micro-management, gossip, backstabbing, employees treated like a commodity, not human beings. Lots of turnover.
HR & PR trying to improve image
Poor internal culture, management not supportive of HR/PR initiatives
The organization provided structure, organization, in and environment that demonstrated compassion and empathy.
Volunteer Intern - (Work Study Student) (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – December 15, 2016
I believe everyone in the organization genuinely has the professional behaviour and compassion too see the greater need to provide a loving and nurturing environment to individual that are mentally challenged with disabilities. This particular organization helps those that have certain special needs reintergrate themselves socially in our schools, communities, and get them prepared for work the environment too earn income that foster good self esteem, confidence, and the ability to meet expectations in the work place.
Exercises that are stimulating for the mind, body, and soul.
Not enough support staff to meet all the different type of demands.
An excellent opportunity to assist other individuals grow more independent
Behavioral Health Technician (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – October 16, 2016
A typical work day involves assisting others, ensuring their well being. There are many responsibilities including medication monitoring and providing residents with education and support services. The management is approachable and always available. Co workers are amazing, kind and patient. I have learned that the easiest way to have a good day is to treat others with the utmost respect and dignity.
It is critically important to respect work place ethics at all times.
Volunteer Intern - Work Study Student (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 12, 2016
This kind of business requires a high level of training, You must continue to train and educate your self and staff in order to provide and understand the seriousness of how important it is to deal with person with disabilities.This kind of work is more than a job It's a profession that requires knowledge of various disabilities. This company provides excellent service for those who need assistance, I'm so appreciative of having the experience of caring for others while working with this company.
