Suggestions for improvement

  • In regard to benefits, all full-time employees are required to take medical insurance, even if we are covered by a spouse. This should not be a mandate. At times, it has ended up costing me more money when receiving medical care.

What I like about the company

I have daily opportunities to make a difference in the lives of students and to make personal connections with both students and educators. I have the freedom to make professional decisions based on my expertise.

What I dislike about the company

My time can be consumed with state mandates that do not have the impact on student achievement that other areas of my work can.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I am quite content with workplace policies, culture, and environment. This agency stripes to make its policies clear on an annual basis. Employees are invited to participate actively in review of these policies and Ask questions as needed. The agency works to provide a culture that is positive for its employees no matter if they work at the main office or itinerantly. The agency has updated its facilities to provide a more well lit, colorful parking space.

What I like about the company

This agency develops leaders who work to understand the role of a variety of employees and what they do to serve the agency and its constituents on a daily basis. That’s important to me as a provider in my field.
I have also been impressed with the flexibility offered in times of personal strife or crisis that may not get offered elsewhere.

What I dislike about the company

I would encourage the agency to retain service coordinators in the area of Early Access. This will provide consistency to the families we serve.
I would also like to see health care premiums are managed in a way so that they can remain affordable for all of the employees who work with the agency, not just a salaried employees.
