Fun and challenging with lots of support and advancement opportunities
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, NY – March 28, 2018
This is a large agency with many locations and diverse programs, which has its pros and cons. Each site is unique and has its own culture. Because the agency is so large, there are so many opportunities for advancement. There is a strong focus on staff development and helping employees meet their career goals. The agency provides trainings, supervision for licensure, and continuing education credits. Staff are full-time at 35 hours with lots of holidays and time off, and a work-life balance is strongly encouraged. Hourly pay is competitive for the area, but because of the 35-hour work week, it's less than what others might pay annually. The work we get to do is so rewarding, and employees stay here because they can see the results of their hard work in the lives of their clients. Management values the diversity of employees and clients, and it's easy to feel welcomed by staff. They tend to hire compassionate and supportive employees. The people who work here make the job enjoyable, especially on days when the work is challenging. Many of my coworkers feel like family to me, and I'm so grateful for the community I've found in them.
