Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – July 14, 2018
Fraser is a company that means well and does a lot of good in the community. However, there was far too much turnover within the housing division at the management level which led to problems not only for the staff but also for the residents. Working with the residents was, as most DSPs I'm sure can tell you, simultaneously the hardest and most enjoyable part of the job.

Fraser has a very specific mold for who they allow to be successful. If you go beyond that or try to bring in innovation, they shut you down and slowly grind you down until they find a reason to get rid of you. If you fit the mold, you're fine. Other than sub-par pay/benefits and technology.
The environment is very collaborative. I'm learning a lot in my field and have a lot of opportunity for growth. Fast-paced/fast-growing. There is a good balance of PTO and my job is flexible. If you do your job well you are given more flexibility and pay for performance.

Fraser is okay for a starter job, but not as a career job. Fraser hired lots of teenagers without experience and clients were moved around a lot. There were lack of communications sometimes and not a lot of support
Site was good and do we're my co-workers, management was a different story.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Hopkins, MN – March 26, 2018
I loved working for the site I was at, gave a two week notice worked all my shifts about six months later put in a another application it was excepted, was going to meet with site PC and all of a sudden I'm not a candidate for rehire really but a week ago I was.
They work you to the bone, give little thanks and only build clinics in rich neighborhoods. Managers are rude and unintelligent and lower level staff are blamed for the mistakes that are made. You are expected to accept a lower pay because its a non-profit but most of the higher ups drive new luxury cars.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – November 26, 2017
I came in for work and there was no food to cook for clients in the morning. PC does not coordinate schedules and cause new staff that is not trained to be left alone without being fully trained. Short staff. I enjoy the clients but not how the company run the group home
A typical day working with kids through mental health was stressful but rewarding. The staff was always supportive with one another. I learned that every child is different and that you must have patience when helping them improve social and play skills.

Fraser is a great place to work, and I haven't met a co-worker I did not like in the almost 2 years I have worked there. The pay is good considering the job in comparison to other companies, but it is definitely not what I would consider good pay overall. Also, if a client gets sick or hurt while you are working, you need to fill out paperwork and handle talking with managers over the phone during your time off, which is difficult when you have multiple jobs.
Good people, help others, flexible hours
Pay isn't that good, sometimes have to do work outside of your hours
I worked at Fraser for almost two years and it was not a good experience. Poor management even in a professional setting, low pay for the amount of work you do, bad benefits, not diverse, not progressive at all.

Fraser is a great place to learn skills about children with Autism. Over the last 3 and a half years of working at Fraser I was able to learn much about Autism Spectrum Disorder. I worked as leader of a team to implement early intervention strategies to help children before they were entering preschool or kindergarten. The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to see kids come in and go through our program and leave having the skills necessary to be more successful out in the community, at school, and in the home.
Flexible, Good Supervisors, Positive Work Environment
Poor Compensation, Short-staffed, Poor communication
Human Resources Representative (Former Employee) – Richfield, MN – August 26, 2017
This is the the best HR group I have worked for thus far. The organization is able to recognize strengths of individual divisions and employees which made it great when solving problems and moving the organization forward.
