Community Specialist 1 (Current Employee) –  Congers, NYMay 8, 2018
I enjoyed working with individuals with disabilities. It is my joy to help them enjoy the habilitation activities. There is no career opportunity or a salary advancement.

great place to work if it's your calling
Direct Support Representative (Former Employee) –  Congers, NYJanuary 11, 2018
Its a great place to work if your calling is helping those that need, while learning new skills everyday. A typical day can include almost anything but is incredibly rewarding.

Mismanaged and poor commuincation
Community Specialist III (Former Employee) –  Congers, NYFebruary 24, 2017
The individuals you work with is the only solace you have at this agency. Good co-workers are a dime a dozen. Most hires are unqualified and lack the compassion and skill set necessary to effectively perform their duties. Mismanaged and poor communication between management and staff.
Pros
Working with a diverse individuals
Cons
management, and under paid.

Weak management leading to weak staff
Hard worker (Former Employee) –  Rockland County, NYJune 23, 2016
Some of the professional staff members (Speech Therapist) and so-called management (Practice Manager) are abusive to staff. They condone each others' horrible behavior. This company professes to be kind, loving, and patient to the developmentally-disabled population they serve while at the same time being secretive, jealous, and abusive, with little regard to the employees doing the hands-on work. Sadly, even when those at the top know of this behavior, they turn the other cheek, which is the same as condoning it. So glad I moved on. Do yourself a monumental favor and stay far away from this place. Whatever job you do, you are too good to work at Rockland ARC.
Pros
A few professional and pleasant people work there. Those attending the programs are wonderful
Cons
Rockland ARC has a foreboding atmosphere and a few people who work there fit right in

Teacher (Former Employee) –  Congers, NYAugust 18, 2014
Arc was a great company to work for. Though we worked under lots of pressure at times but the job itself was a learning experience. It was very rewarding to me working with disabled people and knowing that I have made a difference in their lives. I have worked with a fine management team and great co workers in this company.
Cons
Understaffed
