Good at making the individuals who live there feel like they're part of the community.
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) –  Grafton, NDNovember 30, 2016
A typical day at Life Skills and Transition Centerl? There's no such thing! There's always something to do, whether your going to the park, the public pool, or down the street to an individuals favorite store. Every day is different, some better than others, but every day your'e making a positive impact on someones life and helping them to grow as a person. Not only do you help these individuals grow and be productive members of society, you make life long friends.
Pros
Get paid to have fun.
Cons
always short staff

Working at LifeSTEPS is like Joining a Sick Cult
Director of Social Services (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CAMarch 28, 2015
This is by far one of the worst environments I have ever worked in. The Executive Director is typically highly erratic and unpredictable. More often than not she will fixate on a small irrelevant detail and disrupt the flow of work in order to micro-manage whatever she is currently fixated on. The level of dysfunction at this company is paramount and never ceases to amaze me. Employees are not rewarded for their skills and merit. Instead, they are rewarded based on their loyalty and capacity to kiss up and stroke the E.D.'s ego. If one expresses concern regarding his or her workload, they are ostracized and labeled at "un-coachable." The company culture dictates negative and dishonest behavior and as a result employees lie about the amount of work they can handle which in turn affects other employees. I have never experienced a working environment that emphasizes self-preservation as much as LifeSTEPS. If i had a dollar for every time I heard the term "cover your a**," I'd be rich. This is a sick company and I desperately wish to get out of here. If you are able too, please avoid employment here.
Pros
None
Cons
Limited benefits (they only pay 75% for employees only-no family), the pay is mediocre at best, culture, bonuses
