Pros

Autonomy - sort of; easy job

Cons

constant supervision; second-guessed my mgmt; treated like criminally-minded children

Advice to Management

Just because you hire people with records does not mean all of your employees are criminals. Your level of distrust in your employees is unfortunate. Instead of rewarding your hardworking, long-term employees with a raise or bonus, you spend several thousand dollars on a faulty surveillance system. All Hail Big Brother.

    Pros

    The company is financially stable and hasn't laid anybody off. The culture of the company is friendly but you do have to be productive.

    Cons

    The pay is a bit on the low side. The work is strenuous. There is a high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    If you would raise the base pay a little bit fewer people would leave the company.

    Pros

    Goodwill does more that people are typically aware of in the community. They not only have the reatail stores, but they have programs that benefit individuals with disabilities.

    Cons

    The main Workforce Development Center is located in Lawrenceville, PA. There are not a whole lot of businesses to walk to yet as Lawrenceville is revitilizing the city.

    Advice to Management

    They have an open door policy (including the CEO)
