You will never have a life outside of work.
Pros: the consumers and families
Cons: 24/7 on call, little assistance from management
In the beginning, I was energized and ready to work with management I believed to be solid, caring, and willing to do anything to help consumers and staff succeed. However, as the job progressed, I found myself standing alone. 24/7 on-call as a program manager without any form of rotation so you could have a life. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the consumer... but I burnt out quickly. There are other jobs at RHC/Envision that i'm sure are amazing, but residential was difficult to say the least.
