Pros

They are very family oriented, they try to always make their employees feel wanted and appreciated. It is a very nice company to work for.

Cons

Due to the current budget cuts there is a salary freeze. I wish we didn't depend on government grants alone.

Advice to Management

Offer some incentives to make up for the salary freeze. Maybe increase the rate of vacation accrual, until the freeze is over.

    Pros

    The satisfaction of working for an organization that makes a difference in the lives of those most vulnerable in society. Being part of a team of dedicated professionals. Corporate culture really values staff's personal lives and makes arrangements to accommodated personal responsibilities where possible. Truly is a cross gender and culture work environment.

    Cons

    Commuting in the central New Jersey area is difficult. Traffic is always heave during normal rush hour and if there is an accident or any kind of disruption in traffic patterns, traffic comes to a halt. There can be a significant amount of micromanagement depending on the project you work in.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs should look for ways to empower staff to be more self sufficient, making decisions without the continual involvement of others where possible. Some of the procedures should be streamlined to alleviate strains on productivity, such as time recording burdens.
