    Pros

    Medical Benefits and retirement plan. CEH credits. Good time off compensations. Many different services for the public within the organization. Mortgage counseling for the HRC department good and reliable.

    Cons

    Personal growth and morale low due to lack of management for the Social Services department within the Community Services area and lack of funding. Low wages for HRC staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To compensate for low wages for staff, make working a little pleasurable by building the morale up within the HRC department. If staff have a positive experience that will always help to build a good experience with clients.,

    Pros

    CCUSA has been a long and trusted name in the fight against poverty in America. The dedication of staff to this goal is wonderful. 10% contribution to retirement savings is also attractive.

    Cons

    Senior management clearly don't understand the justice issues they work towards. Executive leadership turnover is high, which is surprising considering the compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a more fair distribution of wealth.
