I have worked fulltime with my current employer for 32 years. While being employed here, I have had Crohn's surgery 3 times, ear surgery, c-section, hand surgery, a severe bout of arthritis in my hands, and have missed a lot of time because of flares. Needless to say they have been very understanding.
They are a non-profit behavioral health center. The pay could be better, but the benefits are good. This is the main reason I stay. I think it would have been difficult for me to work in the public sector.
