Devereux is a great place to work, the only downer is the people within the company. Too much gossip not enough focus on work or areas that need attention.

stressful environment
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Former Employee) –  Goleta, CAOctober 10, 2018
though the job is rewarding the pay does not equal the amount of stress that is placed upon employees. Particularly 1:1 staffers. As a staff in charge you receive only a pay increase of 1$ while being in charge of an entire household of individuals as well as distributing their medications.

Not a bad place to work
Licensing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Orlando, FLOctober 4, 2018
Easily one where you could work the rest of your life with little to no stress. Most deadlines are reasonable. Working with upper management and contractors can be frustrating but talking to them is rare.
Pros
Ultimate flexibility with scheduling
Cons
No room for advancement and frustrating upper management.

Actively assist the clients (Current Employee) –  SomersetOctober 3, 2018
My typical day at Devereux includes working with 4 clients to ensure that their needs are catered for. I learned a lot about dealing with individuals with disabilities and how the need support them in order for them to succeed. The work place culture is that of working as a team and cooperation between staff and management. The challenging part of the job is working with clients who cannot do much for themselves which means they depend on staff for everything. The most exciting part of job is to here thank you from client because they feel satisfied and more appreciative of the work you do.

It is what it is but not what you think
Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Victoria, TXOctober 1, 2018
I loved working in the environment itself with the children that are there and even with all of the floor staff. Meeting people who have the same amount of compassion for the world today. However, the management higher up is not interested in the long term aspect of how to keep staff in a field like such. Would not recommend to someone who is looking for something long term.
Pros
Working with kids from negative backgrounds and being able to make a positive effect in their lives.
Cons
Poor management higher up (administration)

Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) –  West Chester, PASeptember 29, 2018
Love the kids, some supervisors lack professionalism. Overall its not a bad place to work. I believe the pay should be higher. Benefits should be given to all staff not just full time staff.

It's fun interacting with individuals served
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Berwyn, PASeptember 27, 2018
Devereux is a good place to work. I enjoyed the mentorship training and interaction with the individuals served. There is a good workplace culture. Management becomes bias sometimes in decision making, especially when it involves dispute.

Teacher Assistant (Current Employee) –  Red Hook, NYSeptember 19, 2018
Working at Devereux really makes you feel like that you are contributing to the community or task that Devereux was set up for. Overall work day was a little hectic, but at the end of the day the co-workers made it better.

Would Not Recommend
Behavior Specialist (Former Employee) –  Newfoundland, PASeptember 18, 2018
I would not recommend working here. Poor management, poor leadership and rude Human Resources staff. If you're willing to travel, do training and paperwork at your own expense, then this is the job for you. If you're interested in being paid for your work, then look elsewhere. Not a good agency.
Pros
working with people
Cons
poor management, no leadership, rude human resource staff

Great behavioral analysis experience
Direct Support Leader (Former Employee) –  Palm Bay, FLSeptember 18, 2018
If your intent is work in the world of behavior analysis, this job is a great place to work. You work closely with BA's, psychologists, doctors and management to create, implement and maintain behavior plans for residents. However, recognition and compensation is few and far between. Once you are no longer an absolute necessity to the program, your position is easily replaceable. Management doesn't support employees in time of crisis.
Pros
Benefits, paid time off
Cons
Job advancement, lack of appreciation for employees, staff is expendible

High turnover rate due to management, not the job itself.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) –  GeorgiaSeptember 17, 2018
If your calling is working in behavioral health, Devereaux may be a great place for you. Unfortunately, there is an extremely high turnover rate- which I believe is due to a few factors: poor management (extremely understaffed, you will end up being mandated to work shifts back to back often, even a couple days in a row), poor hand-off communication (Devereaux is supposed to have GREAT hand-off communication but reflects the opposite. Veteran staff lack in helping new hires get up to speed with them, leaving them without direction and support), and inadequate pay and compensation for the physical, emotional, and mental toll of the job. Yes, the job itself can be stressful and challenging, but the politics and management of the company is what turns so many people away, including me. Free meals and overtime pay does not compensate for what direct care staff truly have to endure.
