    I worked at Community Action Partnership full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly staff who care about what they're doing. They organized an enormous, successful national convention in San Francisco despite looming budget cuts.

    Cons

    Washington, DC is an awful city that is far too close to the politicians who slash social safety nets left and right. Meetings at neighboring nonprofits were awash in apathy and incompetence, compared to only a slight trickle at CAP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline as much as possible, automate the tasks that are delegated to arthritic fingers.

    It's sad when the employees qualify for the services because of low pay.

    I have been working at Community Action Partnership

    Pros

    We help low income people-I feel I make a difference in the lives of others. This agency offers a lot of helpful trainings and they are also very family oriented. Never a problem to take time off for personal use. They have a generous vacation policy, as well as holidays paid...even your birthday! They also pay for a single healthcare and dental plan. The healthcare is Medica and isn't the best. I recently resigned my position there because of the low pay and moved out of Jamestown.

    Cons

    Low wages and also the fact that there is major middle management weakness with site supervisors. The communication between site supervisors and Head Start teachers is weak at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more. The wages are unbelievably low compared to other Head Start facilities.

    I worked at Community Action Partnership full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    CAP has good benefits. Holidays galore. Most managers are flexible and understand how real life gets in the way of a day of work sometimes.

    Cons

    Low pay. Spending time on projects that never go anywhere
