Suggestions for improvement
- Individual roles need to be outlined more specifically and training for specific roles carried out. I received only one (extremely informal) performance review in five years of working as a Human Services Specialist! The structure of the company is ambiguous; job titles/duties bleed into one another. Structure, organization, clear goals for clients... these are all severely lacking. There are extremely limited opportunities for growth within the company, as it appears to serve the budget to keep employees in entry level positions/pay grades.
What I like about the company
My positive experiences with the company came from witnessing growth and transformation in the clients I served through my daily interactions with them. I'd like to say, and I hope it is the case, that I helped to encourage, inform and model behavior and life skills that truly caused a change in individuals' lives. Sometimes it isn't so straightforward or clear, but there are always those moments where you really know you've connected and hit the mark with another person, and it is exceptionally gratifying to feel that you've made a difference in some way.
What I dislike about the company
The company was very disorganized and management/supervisory roles were disconnected from the rest of the team or dysfunctional. Advancement opportunities were based on seniority alone, regardless of performance, knowledge/background or professionalism. Being a non-profit meant that managerial/supervisory roles were only concerned with the budget and no emphasis was placed on the actual best interest of clients.
