What I like

Being able to give back to the community and make a difference in young peoples lives!

The pay and management is not great. Always understaffed which causes chaos.

I would pay people more and make more perks about the job. This type of job you need to have benefits to it.

What I like

I do not want to share any of my personal experiences.

What I dislike

We should be paid more. Also when accepting students we should talk to the teacher before placing in classrooms.

Suggestions for improvement

We should be paid more. There should be better options in the summer for my building. It gets really hot and we should offer a better solution

What I like

The students I work with can be challenging at times but making a difference in their lives is so rewarding. My coworkers are a great team and a lot of fun to work with. The company takes a lot of time and effort to put in place wellness initiatives such as discounts on health insurance, fitness classes, a fitness center and lunch and learn opportunities. My supervisor is always there when I need her and is quick to respond to the questions I have. I am fairly compensated for my job and was able to work my schedule around the needs of my family. I received paid time off when I had children without being made to feel like I was a burden.

What I dislike

Sometimes there is not clear communication from administration about changes in the company that will effect employees. There are a lot of different locations to work at and some of them do not get the same benefits as others because of where they are located. For example, wellness lunch and learns are not accessible to locations that are 20 minutes away.

Suggestions for improvement

I would like to see better communication about changes that effect employees. I would also like to see wellness events that include everyone.

What I like

Supportive managers. Friendly company- hr trainers. Ability to grow and learn new departments through hiring within.

What I dislike

I miss townhall meetings. Communicating with departments where the agency is headed. There are more rumors now.

Suggestions for improvement

Unfortunately due to age of building work can be uncomfortable. Ie temperature. Reduce rumors by communicating face to face with employees regarding status of agency.

Former EmployeeWorked at baker victory services in Lackawanna, NY until 2016.

Overall compensation for your work

I worked harder than most in the office and field and received hourly wage that was not livable.

Support from management

My direct supervisor was great. However, in the field I worked, very difficult to find coverage and unrealistic expectations.
