Suggestions for improvement

  • Simplify the earned time program to remove bonus days, and just bump up the accruals per pay period to make up the difference. Do a better job sharing information on perks with both new and existing employees because things like fitness discounts, career training opportunities, and tuition reimbursement are very appealing to many workers.

What I like about the company

Strong benefits package with 403(b) matching
Various programs at many locations around Boston the South Shore
Extensive training opportunities available to staff
Multiple employee recognition programs
The work that The Home does positively impacts countless children and families

What I dislike about the company

Some locations offer limiting parking/aren't very T accessible
