I have been working at American Baptist Homes of the West full-time for more than a year

Pros

The mission and the culture, everybody is dedicated to the mission so all the employees are working together, hence the team work approach and the term Team Member.

Cons

Work life balance can be a challenge, the mission is so great, that many people put in long hours in order to make this a great place.

Ensure accountability and consistency are a focus.

    Pros

    This company has no pros for employees below administrator level.
    If you are an incompetent administrator, this is a good place for you to further your career.
    Promotions and good salaries go to those who can play company politics well.
    De facto trade skills, good personality and a concern for other employees is not required.

    Cons

    If you are below an administrator, you are of no value to this company.
    Training is relegated to administrators and above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire administrators who know how to manage and have empathy for their fellow employees.
    Track their performance and give attention - in earnest - to complaints about administrators accused of abusing their charges.
    If an administrator flagrantly violates your company tenets, fire them. Don't shuffle them off to another 'dioceses' or ignore the problem.
