    Pros

    Some pros of working at Pioneer: Paid time off, trainings, and independence on the job.

    Cons

    Some of the cons of working at Pioneer: Low pay compared to other organizations, understaffed, poor communication, disorganized, and lots of talk about change with little to no delivery.

    Advice to Management

    If upper management was truly interested in the input of staff-show them and do something about it rather than rationalize or defend the companies position. Act as those working in the positions who are doing the hands on work are part of the team as well. Utilize the funds in other area such as in the grass roots of the company rather than in administration. Line up salaries with what is current. Provide more trainings that actually will benefit staff in their position than what is just procedure.

    Pros

    The Organization has a good mission, trying to help the unfortunate. MI, Homeless, substance abuse.

    Cons

    The organizations spend money on things they don't really need, because someone gave them a grant or donation.. Don't plan out more than current year, if that, and is a pipedream.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together or move on.

  5. Working with the clients has been wonderful. My fellow employees are very helpful. Upper management is out of touch.

    Pros

    I work with hard working, dedicated, professional people. My job is rewarding.

    Cons

    The pay is very low and there are very few raises for the employees who are not in upper management.. We don't even get a cost of living increase. I've been there many years and still make the same.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight at the top. Start with raising the income of those who have been there a while and an annual cost of living increase. It's sad when some of our clients whom we serve are making close to what we make. Upper management is out of touch with our clients and employees.


  6. Pioneer is an amazing organization that helps many people who really need help.

    Pros

    This is a great place to work because of the satisfaction that comes with helping people. Everyone that works here has a great attitude and kind personality.

    Cons

    There is not much downside to working at Pioneer except for the fact that it is a non-profit and is funded by the State.
