    Pros

    Great benefits. Flexibility with schedule.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for mentoring, advancement into higher positions. Standard 2-3% annual pay increase whether performing or not. Out of control with top heavy upper management. Funds could be better distributed to front line staff.

    Pros

    Has a high-energy leadership team, mission-based work that makes a difference, with other people who care deeply about affordable housing. Makes an investment in training and employee development. Really listens to people who have constructive and respectful feedback about how to make the organization better.

    Cons

    I can see where it might be hard to feel like part of the larger culture for one who works at a smaller property.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to integrate a fantastic culture!

    Pros

    Growing company, opportunity for advancement, great benefits, employee appreciation, fun team environment (I suppose that depends on which site you are at), flexibility

    Cons

    salaries are a bit lower, sometimes lack of communication between corporate and sites, office politics and 'drama' (again, this could vary between sites), low annual increases

    Pros

    Great company so far to work with. The kindness and helpful attitude here is impressive.

    Cons

    None I can find yet. If you do not want to work for a large company, this is not your place. Still I must say with the CEO coming to speak with new employees at orientation, it does retain a very personable atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    From what I am seeing so far my only advice is keep it up!

    Pros

    Working with the Residents at there Assisted Living Facility

    Cons

    upper management does not support there employees. They have very dishonest people in positions that have no experience. They all cover up with each other so nothing can get to the CEO. They get what they need from you and toss you out like a bag of trash

    Advice to Management

    Be able to talk to the little people that actually make the company successful. Be more involved with your staff and don't feel you can trust everyone I have never worked for a company that has lost good workers and have kept two faced supervisors that will do anything to get head


  8. disloyal to the workers and the people that live in the properties

    Pros

    - Lenient scheduling - Good PTO rate - Co-workers are hard working and willing to help yopu learn

    Cons

    Middle Managment has been poorly selected Extremely poor communitcation within the company the salaries will qualify you to live in public housing No incentives whatsoever

    Advice to Management

    - Turnover rates will continue to be high until you pay your employees enough to stick around for a bit. - Take liability for when employers take home unwanted bugs to their homes from work. - Give employees more incentive top further their education, giving credit at a community college does not cut it.
