Pros: flexible work hours
Cons: bad pay rate, terrible work conditions, terrible management, bad bennefits
The state of Utah is light years behind when it comes to the work environments of their employees. The pay rate in the state of Utah is terrible as a whole and the benefits have dwindled throughout the years. Fun was not encouraged and nether was making sure the mental state of the children we had to deal with were in good shape. The state cut corners every way they could. My co workers were all unhappy whether it was with management, the work conditions, or the fact they weren't making enough to survive on. The hardest part of the job was dealing with incompetent management from top to bottom. Also working with kids for seven months and then having them leave. You build a bond with the kids and then they have to leave so that made it somewhat tough as well. I learned a lot about how to treat people, how I want to be treated within the work place, as well as what it takes to have a good work environment.
