Cons: little advancement opportunity
This is a decent company to start with, and obtain experience, whether it be scheduling, hr, or home support. Unfortunately, there is little advancement opportunity, and the salary for the amount of work done is insufficient to live on.
A typical day at work involves many phone calls, inputting data, listening to complaints, booking in meetings, writing – more... letters, approving and denying vacations, along with many special projects.
Management is willing to listen to complaints and suggestions, but many times unable or unwilling to act. There is more negativity, than positivity in the office environment, and anyone not in line with corporate ideals is swiftly shown the door. Many times the company feels inflexible or unwilling to accommodate special requests. As a for-profit company, there are times when it feels like the only thing that matters is the bottom line.
The company has a very high turnover rate for field staff as well as in office staff. This company may not be for everyone. It does take a great deal of patience to work in this company.
The most enjoyable part of the job are the coworkers, as most of them are good people. The other good part of the job is being able to assist field staff, clients and families, and receiving a thank you every now and then, to feel like you have been able to make a difference in someone's life. – less
