Company Culture

Equal opportunities and focused on self-care.

Overall compensation for your work

Social services/nonprofits can only pay so much, good benefits make up for lack of pay

Challenging Work

Working with kids with trauma.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Provide more trainings on cultural diversity for all programs.

What I like about the company

A positive personal experience is having a supervisor and coworkers admire my work and ideas within the setting. Provide trainings to help me become the best employee. Company really listens to ideas and turns them into something great.

What I dislike about the company

Providing better wages and pay for all employees.

Company Culture

The worst work place culture I've experienced at any job.

Support from management

Management isn't even present half the time. In "meetings" constantly and leaves without informing the staff.

Teamwork

Job Coaches work together as much as they can but management is awful and there have been no team meetings since I've worked here.

Freedom to work independently

Some of the work is independent.

Internal Communication

Awful communication even @ the program level. Managers will change which clients are assigned to you without even notifying you.

Gender Equality

Main office/corporate in my area is completely run by women. Not a single male in the office.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Half the people here are very friendly and the other half can be extremely rude and mean.

Career Development

JRI does offer to pay for part of your schooling if you work for them for a certain amount of time.

Overall compensation for your work

Extremely low pay. Good benefits (not great).

Office / Work Environment

Hostile

Environmental Friendliness

Extremely large amounts of plastic waste on a daily basis.

Work-Life Balance

Decent work life balance if you can manage to use your PTO (paid time off). It's very difficult because even after you submit a request for time off, management usually doesn't even check. When they do check half the time they decline you because someone else has already requested and if there aren't enough job coaches that means the manager/a.manager has to fill in as a job coach.

Company Image

Somehow this company gets riveting reviews from the Boston Globe. Perhaps other sections of this company are much better than the one I work in.

Job Security

No one wants these jobs and they can't afford to fire anyone unless you really mess up and there's no possible way they can look the other way.

Handicapped Accessibility

We work with handicapped individuals so it's very handicapped accessible.

Workplace Safety

Poor management/high turnover rate(new employees constantly) leads to some dangerous situations.

Challenging Work

Working with special needs adults can be challenging but it's honestly not that bad. Working with incompetent staff and management can be the challenging part.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very diverse.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay your employees a living wage. Hire better management (not just anyone to fill in the job so that directors get out of filling in). Hire better staff (not just someone to fill in the job so that managers get out of filling in). More oversight (this company is obviously a nonprofit so noone really cares what is happening or is ever held responsible). There is clearly a lack of leadership higher up in this company.

What I like about the company

Benefits are okay. Working with the clients is a lot of fun and fulfilling work.

What I dislike about the company

Pay is terrible. You basically make as much as a McDonalds employee. This company prides itself on social justice and doesn't even pay all it's employees a living wage. The people I work with are working two jobs and falling asleep at work because they are so tired.
