    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Autism Initiatives full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some staff can make it worthwhile if you get a good team. Sleeps are paid. Can be rewarding and gives a sense of pride when an achievement is reached.

    Cons

    Awful pay, no consideration for your well-being, both physical and mental. Long unsociable hours, every incident is staffs fault- always. Training is irrelevant, and long winded. Repetitive paperwork, hard to see a reason/any relevance for some of it. High staff turnover due to pay and working conditions, most get fed up and leave because you are dispensable, and its clear management believe this.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Mileage paid between clients, which is alot different to anywhere else I have worked previously. They care about clients and staff match wherever possible. Management listen, and if they aren't available your team leader will. I have been working in care for years and this is by far the best company I have come across. They care about the staff and the client's equally and understand that staff need a work/life balance. The company tend to promote from within as-well, and I would definitely recommend this organisation to somebody who's looking to start out working in this sector.

    Cons

    Very occasionally asked to do long hours.

    I worked at Autism Initiatives full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with some great clients made the shift.

    Cons

    Managers don't care what happens at the service as long as its staffed. If you have a grievence it won't get further than your line manager, and then I wouldn't want to be in your shoes. Expected to work all hours for no pay. Managers had a complete lack of experience. AVOID.
