I worked at Community Action Partnership of Kern full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – It is tremendously rewarding to contribute towards making a positive difference in the lives of others - particularly those who are most vulnerable in society...this organization's mission is all about doing good things - great work!
The salary and benefits as well as work schedules are adequate; though for dedicated exempt employees can often go unrecognized - but that is true just about everywhere.
Cons – In my experience there were many within the organization (particularly at the leadership level) who were content to be misinformed at best, and unethical in their appropriation of funds at worst. I left the organization because of personal ethical convictions - which did not allow for me to continue to associate with an organization who behaved in such a manner.
Advice to Senior Management – Don't be content with status quo - continue to seek to improve, and be fiduciary responsible; treat the funds you are entrusted with as if they were precious and few (because they are!), follow the requirements of the contracts you enter into not just 'to the law of the letter' but also to the intent of the funder, and last but not least, do unto others (fiscally as well as inter-relationally) as you would have them do unto you.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
