I have been working at Grant Associates

Pros

If you work hard and show initiative, there is room to grow and advance.
For the most part, the 8:30-5:00 PM hours are respected.

Cons

Senior personnel often stay/get promoted not based on performance.
The benefits package is really poor, which becomes even more apparent once you start to work there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While the wage isn't bad, the benefits package is very bad and actually makes the entire package not so great. Please consider being more generous with benefits.

    VPs are great but the director and managers of one of the newest centers somehow block you to get to them

    I have been working at Grant Associates full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility. When upper management can, they work with you. Just be honest with them. The workers are great but sadly micro management and the director doesn't see that.

    Cons

    The director forgets she is a director and not a dictator. She knows nothing but somehow never let's your voice be heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the "line staff". And stop brushing issues under the rug. Don't take care of issues that only is if your convenience.

    I worked at Grant Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    New hires - you are often moved by their enthusiasm and idealism

    Cons

    The company's funder is incompetent and there is absolutely no structure or support. Management style is no management; miscommunication is the norm. The ultimate irony is that they talk about numbers constantly but they can't even keep their books or records straight. Nor does anyone listen to rational suggestions about increasing productivity.

    The sector centers are ruled by nepotism and corruption. They rely on new people to drive up sales, burn them out with a crippling, humiliating, and dehumanizing bureaucratic system, and the vultures will rise and pick up the fruit of others' labor. Stay away from this company at all cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shut down your centers altogether as the contracts are set up for failure.
