Get the feeling that the agency is understaffed, underpaid, and management think that “thank you” pays for bills. No room for adv, staff (especially new hires) leave as soon as they can secure another job at a better agency, facilities are... more or less disgusting. Their kitchen is roach infested but continue to serve food to their own staff, seniors, children, parents... And the Director justifies poor wages by enforcing that the work culture should be “giving”. It’s hard to give when you can barely survive the wages, on top of which is barely worth getting attacked verbally and physically by clients and walking into bedbug infested client’s homes -COMPLETELY BARE without any insect protection whatsoever. Either management is aware and can’t do anything about it, or they are and just too lazy to do anything right.
Staff moral is so low you can see the awkwardness at staff meetings and events.
staff are able to support each other, secretly hoping things will change.
Too many to count. Ridiculous.
