Dd Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
dd is a command-line utility for Unix and Unix-like operating systems, the primary purpose of which is to convert and copy files.On Unix, device drivers for hardware (such as hard disk drives) and special device files (such as /dev/zero and /dev/random) appear in the file system just like normal files; dd can also read and/or write from/to these files, provided that function is implemented in thei
The dd command is one of the original Unix utilities and should be in everyone's tool box. It can strip headers, extract parts of binary files and write into the middle of floppy disks; it is used by the Linux kernel Makefiles to make boot images. It can be used to copy and convert magnetic tape formats, convert between ASCII and EBCDIC, swap bytes, and force to upper and lowercase.
Some downsides mentioned in a review published for a blog called ¨Vidar's Blog¨: "In some cases, dd serves no purpose. It’s purely a superstitious charm trying to ensure the safe passage of the data. It’s like a cat except not as efficient. The fact of the matter is, dd is not a disk writing tool. Neither “d” is for “disk”, “drive” or “device”. It does not support “low level” reading or writing. It has no special dominion over any kind of device whatsoever. dd, meanwhile, has one job*: copy data from one place to another. It doesn’t care about files, safeguards, or user convenience. It will not try to second guess your intent, based on trailing slashes or types of files."
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) says"Management is horrible. Poor treatment to staff not enough pay for what you have to put up with. 3 of the homes infested with bed bugs. RUN AWAY! The work isn’t bad but you have horrible staff ans poor treatment of individuals. Strict unnecessary rules. No break. Schedule is Horrible Cons: no breaks not able to eat on shift, little pay"
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"They DO NOT give you the raise after you get med auth unless you hound the supervisor. Will be taking to court for backpay. They overwork and underpay Cons: No breaks, no meals, no raises, no care to employees health or safety"
Personal Care Worker (Current Employee) says"This job can be something depending on which house you work at . Each house has their own rules and regulations. The only issue is the senior staff, the poor training and the higher ups don’t care about any of the staff if you’re new. They have their favorite employees, and most of the problems that get reported they won’t do anything about it."
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"Loved individuals grew to be family. Management not so much. When you say anything about the wrong the QIDP did it gets swept under the carpet. All houses are treated differently. Cons: Management sucked"
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"Unprofessional everyone on the management is rude untrustworthy hires based on feelings and Facebook small town so everyone knows someone privacy laws are broken on a regular via state and national law Cons: Management"
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) says"While the residents were wonderful to work with management micro manages everything, good workers are criticized and fired while others slack off/ come to work high with no consequences. In my town we had four house being run by 1 extremely overworked and underpaid QIDP and a director who made it known not to bother her with anything. Everyday at this job was filled with anxiety as I feared complaints from my coworkers even when I had done things exactly as trained. They also regularly change such things without notifying anyone. Overall a very poor work place Cons: Management, changing expectations, unrealistic expectations"
Medical (Former Employee) says"If you wish to keep your license in good standing, stay away from this company. I wish someone would have warned me. Now Im caught up in court and lawyers. Cons: No support"
Nursing Home Administrator (Current Employee) says"This company lacks structure and competent leadership. This company strives on training staff, but the training does not help employees gain the skills they need to be productive and successful in their roles. This company does not realize that there are different styles of learning and different methods of delivering effective training that is tailored to the employee's success. Employees sit for 8 hours in a dull, boring, lifeless classroom listening to Trainers read from a PowerPoint Slide. After training, employees are given an evaluation form to complete while the Trainers are standing over you, which makes it difficult to provide an honest opinion. This company is behind in times, uses antiquated practices, and has a Centralized line of Power. For instance, they do not have an HR Department. This company does not allow room for autonomy, Creativity, or necessary change. The turnover rate of QIDPs and Administrators is alarming and sends a red flag that this company does not value their management team. New hires are not allowed to utilize PTO for 6 months, and this practice is unusual for employees in a leadership position. This company creates an environment that breeds employee burnout and poor morale. There are frontline team members in this organization that truly care, show up to work, and give 110%, but they are not respected by Executive Directors or the CEO of the company. The Culture of this company lacks employee engagement, respect, work-life balance, and creativity among other things. The work environment is toxic and kills the human spirit."
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"Management doesn't care about you or the individuals in these homes. You aren't supposed to care about them they are just your job. Terrible terrible! Very under staffed. DSP and QIDP turn over is ridiculous. Don't get paid enough to do everything you do. Don't let one of your individuals pass you will get written up if you go to the funeral. Cons: Everything besides the individuals"
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"I worked at the kanthak house in ottawa and the management is terrible. No wonder why they are always under staffed. There is not one staff that works there that actually likes it there. Get made to come in on my scheduled day off. Always "talking" to staff in the office which is always something they complain about. There are way to many rules like how we cant drink soda around the residents but the q and administrator can. Staff are not allowed to wear hats. They don't care about their staff at all. The q and administrator are so intimidating and they know it. It sucks for the residents that they have to give through staff like crazy. Cons: Everything else."
Nurse (Former Employee) says"Inconsistent with care to resident. Very poor management not trustable as in watch your back. Staff constantly overturning, just hire anyone off the street that really doesn't work. Cons: Management through out the company."
Direct Support Person (DSP) says"The residents were wonderful to work with. Cons: Lack of management"
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"Not a good place to work. Cons: N/a"
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"terrible place to work they dont care about employees or residents.Their living conditions are also terrible for anybody to live in.They also neglect residents."
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"Understaffed constantly. Will see other houses get staff back to back but will will keep other homes short staffed. If your not one of the favorites you will have a rough time. If you want to feel like your back in junior high with the backstabbing coworkers then this is the place for you. Pay is okay but not worth the stress and the respect that is not given to you. Residents are amazing, feel sorry for the staff they have to deal with. If your thinking about taking this job I recommend keeping to yourself... clock in and clock out. Cons: Administration"
DSP/and everything else too (Former Employee) says"Lazy coworkers. Understaffed CONSTANTLY. Neglectful adminstration. No vaule as an employee. Fear of retaliation if you report abuse. Pays less than McDonalds but you're responsible for human lifes. Only time they make themselves look good is when state auditors are expected."
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"The Individuals are a wonder, and they are absolutely great to be around and help. While they can be stressful at times, seeing them grow and helping them makes it (mostly) worth it. I, however, have nothing good to say about the Administration and they are entierly Jaded to the needs of their staff and their individuals. I see no chance of change and that is why I left this. Stay for the people you work with, not your Administration. Cons: Horrid Administration above the QIDP, Little respect given to DSPs, Rules and responsiblities that are required but unrealistic to achive, low staffing and job turnover. Stress!"
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"Loved working with the individuals but the management and administrator were horrible uncaring people. Administrators hired when they didn't know how to do the job Cons: Horrible management"
DSP (Former Employee) says"The individuals were wonderful, but staff was an issue, the veteran staff treated the rest of us badly, and other staff were lazy and unprofessional. our Q was great but overworked and stressed, our administrator didn't seem to care. there is no such thing as a personal life outside of the job, overworked underpaid, and unappreciated. we were always understaffed. the best part was the individuals we cared for, they were always so sweet and amazing. but there are staff that would encourage bad behavior and make their days hard. i wouldn't recommend working for this company. there is no structure and management leaves a lot to be desired. Cons: no breaks, cranky lazy staff, low pay"
QIDP (Former Employee) says"The individuals you work for/with are very rewarding. It is a consistent paycheck. Relatively cheap health insurance. There is a lack of training and communication. Many things are assumed by management and upper management. They don't want to be bothered with questions. Also, there is a slow turn around on questions being answered and follow up. NO OVERTIME even though short staffed. You go above and beyond for this company, but expect nothing in return. No pats on the back or job well done. Not the best working environment. Cons: poor training, long hours, short staffed"
