"Administrative Concerns."
Pros: Working with fellow employees and with the elderly. Leaving at the end of the day feeling like I had made a difference and promoted joy in the lives of others.

There is little, to no, positive support or comments...just negativity with the feeling that, even going above and beyond, will NEVER be enough.
