I worked at this establishment for a year to the day. I really love the idea of what sheltered workshops stand for. These people deserve the best possible staff available. That being said, I made it my mission to be just that. I did everything possible to ensure a positive and productive workplace. Unfortunately, this kind of commitment is rare. I found myself at odds with an insecure and easily manipulated manager and two ambitious and dishonest subordinates. While I was running ragged, trying to promote the mission, they were breeding ill will and a hostile environment. The saddest part is that the people we serve will suffer. Upper management is well aware of the situation. Nonetheless, these insidious people were allowed to divert the blame to me and achieved my dismissal. Now, the clients are at the mercy of at least two staff members who could care less about them and a manager who has not the conscience or will to protect them. There are clear signs of dementia, bipolar disorder, and hostility issues at work, and that's the staff. I love the work and the people. If you're there and something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Do the right thing. Please?
