    I have been working at Bancroft part-time

    Pros

    Bancroft gives you a lot of exposure in working with individuals with intellectual disabilities. It's a good way to figure out if this is the field for you. They also offer a full-ride to Rider for their ABA program if you get accepted, which is great if this does end up being the field for you.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, but it's a non-profit so can't really expect anything more. A lot of incompetent people are in managerial positions, which makes things a lot more difficult and can make the work environment more stressful. Executive Leadership cares more about money than actually helping the individuals with disabilities. Adult day programs don't receive enough funding, so the individuals either digress or they remain...

        •Decent pay •Feeling you make a difference •Tuition Reimbursement (they honestly want their employees to further their education) That is literally it.

        Cons

        Where do I begin?! I was with Bancroft for 3 years and some of the things I saw there scarred me; but that’s a story for another day. First, they’ve gone completely lax with their hiring. When I was hired it was a multi-step process and it was clear that they were hiring quality individuals. Group homes were fully staffed to the point where “scheduling coordinators” were not needed. The decline happened when they cut...

        Advice to Management

        Protect your staff- I saw so many people fired due to investigations that were set into motion based of fpettiness as opposed to actual wrongdoing. Stop lying about scheduling- be respectful of program associates time. Many have families, other jobs, school, etc. it is not fair to allow scheduling coordinators to half do their job and allow everyone else to suffer. Strengthen your fraternization policy-please refer to...

        Pros

        Organization with an inspiring mission and dedicated staff who truly care about the people they serve. Supportive environment and management. Strong emphasis on professional development and career advancement.

        Cons

        The nature of the work is incredibly challenging and can be exhausting. It’s a nonprofit so pay is OK - basically what you’d expect to make at a social service organization - but not great. You really have to love what you do.

        Advice to Management

        Continue to support the staff who work one-on-one with the people we serve.

        Pros

        Decent pay, make up what you lack in overtime (24hrs /wk max)

        Cons

        New scheduling system operates on "points" and does not take into consideration real life events. Managers got lazy and didn't want to do their jobs handling time-cards and disciplinary actions. So now you can lose your job for a misplaced ID receiving 4 points a day even if you show up to your shift on time and complete you job exceptionally.
