    I have been working at Hammer Residences as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Company values- the company is very committed to helping individuals with development disabilities experience life to its fullest. Still upholds the values from the founder, 91 years ago.
    Star Tribune Top Workplaces Award- 5 years in a row
    Great Benefits- 401k, medical and dental care, etc
    Company is growing
    Great people to work with.
    Very "homey"
    Good work life balance

    Cons

    Need to hire more people for the homes/apartments and central office.
    Orientation was long
    Lots of Training (provided by Hammer)
    Having to make a lot of judgement calls in ambiguous situations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is growing and needs to hire more people at the Central Office to manage the day to day operations of the company. For a company with 500 people, there is not a lot of information/reviews about it. Management should encourage and seek honest feedback from employees and advertise the company more.
