    I worked at Bancroft full-time

    Pros

    The clients and clients only

    Cons

    Upper Managment (Directors and above) - if you are a manager or DSP, welcome to the world of politics and misery. The upper managment make decisions about clients they do not work directly with. Since they dont directly work with the clients, the clients pay the price. Clients are moved around in programs almost monthly. For instance, if a client is having an altercation with a peer, one of the clients will be moved....

    Advice to Management

    Remember what it is like to be a direct support staff. Remember why you are at Bancrodt in the first place: the clients. Then look at yourself in the mirror and truly think about who you have become: heartless, robots that provide absolutely no leadership or compassion.

    I have been working at Bancroft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are zero pros here!

    Cons

    Every single person except the staff that actually work directly with the individuals get paid here!!! Management in most programs are a joke! They hire any and everyone and people do the minimum just to get a paycheck. Its like a high school atmosphere. The group homes are all old and filthy. Managers wait until yearly inspection time to patch things up just to pass and then the homes go right back to there horrible...

    Advice to Management

    Pay people appropriately! Managers, directors and all the rest get decent pay checks and literally do NOTHING to help the individuals we serve. Start hiring management from within. Managers should not clock in and just sit in the office all day doing nothing. Its really a joke!

    Pros

    Bancroft does great things for our persons served.

    Cons

    Senior management politics get in the way of progress

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. Employees are frustrated. Do what is right for the good of the whole, Not what is in your personal best interest. It’s business. Act that way. A good example needs to be set for those who see longevity in their career.

    The orgnazation sucks. It’s just like high school. Staff are under paid to deal with the behaviors. The job are scammers. They change policies per staff. They never have enough staff. They falsify information. They racist. No room for advancement, unless you want to suck up.

    I have been working at Bancroft full-time

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth. It can be challenging in the beginning. Thinking about the future is motivational. I'm not 100% happy in my position. But once I get a little more experience I will be able to move on.

    Cons

    Very exhausting so pace yourself. I worked with this population but not at this capacity. It's non stop and you never know what can happen next. It's exciting but can be overwhelming, especially when you are having a bad day. Find your pace and stick with it regardless of what others say. Once you get comfortable than you can start implementing new ways to do things.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on training and shadowing instead of classroom training.

    I worked at Bancroft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It provides good clinical opportunities to learn and practice applied behavior analysis. People who really want to make a career serving individuals with disabilities will find opportunities for growth here with the right mindset and work ethic.

    Cons

    Recruitment and direct care staff retention could be better. High staff to client ratio prevents effective ABA practice.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to keep program census level manageable given staff and other resources that you have..
