    Community Renewal focuses on one neighbor, one community, having their best interest at heart.

    I have been working at Community Renewal Team part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Community Renewal's model is to touch your neighbor, one at a time. Making your neighborhood a safer place for you and your kids to live. Most neighbors now a days don't even know one another. Community Renewal helps fund block parties, Plant neighborhood gardens, and have (Haven Leaders) on every block, so that neighbors will stay in touch with one another.This is truly an awesome thing and I love it.

    Cons

    Some neighbors don't want to be bothered, which leaves a break in the link. This is on a voluntary basis therefore there is no compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice that I can possibly give Management is that, with all the bad neighborhoods in Shreveport, we're going to need a lot more people getting on board.

    Pros

    Lots of down time, flexibility within daily schedule. Great co-worker relationships.

    Cons

    Management is less than solid, lack of cohesiveness within the program. Most staff are underpaid and have case loads much to large for their time. Staff moral is bad and getting worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not run the department like a tyranny. Take specific departments' advice on things you are not an expert in.

    Ghetto, unprofessional and reverse racism. Don't even bother trying to work here if you are an educated white person.

    Pros

    35 hour work week, good benefits.

    Cons

    You can slack off and get away with it. But if you aren't part of the 'in-crowd' you will be mistreated and eventually fired for nonsense. Naive liberals are the prey of the CRT HR Department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the employees who are actually contributing to the "mission" of the organization and spend less time in court defending this "community action agency".

    I have been working at Community Renewal Team full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits not including compensation such as medical, 401k, etc. Really great people dedicated to mission of company.

    Cons

    Low pay & overworked in multiple departments. Many people do not feel appreciated and are looking for other work, both because of pay, being given more and more work, and lack of management support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do skip level meeting to see how each level of management is really doing. Really evaluate how much work can be done in a week before giving more work.
