The people I work with are wonderful. It is great to work with a group that in their DNA really care for other people, it is just what they do. There is a lot of passion around supporting people with disabilities and it feels like when people share those kinds of values and come together they make a happy place.
I know someone else mentioned an inflexible schedule but that hasn't been my experience. I feel like others work varying schedules and I really like that I don't hear whispers that so and so is leaving early and that kind of stuff. People do their job and in this regard at least
People work hard, not always long hours, but they don't mess around. It is social, but pretty focused on the people we serve, our coworkers and learning. I don't mind it, but that's the hardest part of the job. Every day is a challenge in a good way, and it is good work but can be relentless.
When I see some of the employment programs in the past with people with disabilities grouped together doing menial labor (putting together boxes or putting product into boxes) I'm very glad to be at a place where I don't see that happening. Today, that feels like the best part of my job, treating people with respect and experiencing the rewards that come with that.
I really like that we get all of our PTO at the start of the year and spend it down during the year instead of building it up during the year.
Smart, friendly, passionate people
