I've worked here for over a year and to date have had no annual review; there are numerous problems with this agency which have caused me to give my resignation. All of the "directors" should be let go and an entire new leadership brought in. The current leadership is more focused on media/public image than they are on the fundamentals of care for the clients or the rest of their employees. This is the worst place I have ever worked and the only way for it to get better is to totally revamp it with the focus on the clients, better treatment of the employees and a more balanced pay system. The Executive Director's salary is literally 10 times that of mine, and last year rather than taking a pay cut himself he laid people off.
