Pros: good company values, never bored-everyday has new challenges
Cons: long work weeks at times, high rate of turn over among staff
I started off working as a direct care staff, assisting people with developmental disabilities in their homes. I saw how the company struggled, but rather than just complain I applied for a management position to help change things around. Our branch was in need of a lot of work and being a self starter and taking the initiative is required, along with working outside normal hours.
The overall culture was good, valuing the people we support and not putting money over people.
