    I have been working at Child-Parent Centers, Inc.

    Pros

    Great time off and easy, low-key work environment (Most of the time). Very nice benefits package and time off. Admirable mission of trying to help children and families get ahead.

    Cons

    The agency is run by a lot of senior managers who do not have a clue on how to run a MODERN non-profit agency. Let's put it this way, the department in charge of training and development is staffed with people who still think Word and Power point are the top tools of the trade. The executive director is not very knowledgeable about current methods to solve problems, so she relies on the advice of her senior staff. But those people only know a little more than she does, which results in the agency purchasing a lot of expensive equipment that is obsolete when it comes through the door (your tax dollars at work) and isn't used frequently enough to merit the investment (ask them about a little something called IPTV or the infamous Whiteboard). I am in school studying business and from what I've seen at this agency, they exhibit every poor practice that I am studying in my classes to avoid. As if that weren't enough, one of their top senior managers has been sued on more than one occasion, costing the agency a lot of money in both legal fees and settlements (again, your tax dollars at work). Where is the Board of Directors? Where is the oversight? Thus far CPC has flown under the radar without their blemishes being noticed, but sooner or later I'm hoping they will wake up and stop pretending their bigger problems don't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put your pride aside and begin soliciting the advice of employees who probably know how to fix problems but are too afraid of upsetting directors to offer their opinion.
