    Ups .and Downs

    Director (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsWorked in smaller group off the main corporate campus. Co-workers were amazing with a true Team mentality and fun atmosphere. Challenging work but very rewarding.

    ConsNew management made life very difficult, The non-profit became very corporate and concentrated on the bottom line and not the mission.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of the mission and the employees and the bottom line would take care of itself.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Too Much Disorganization

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    Pros90 percent of the staff is friendly and helpful. Public transportation is very close by. In some positions, it's possible to have a flexible schedule. Employees can learn a lot, depending upon location and division.

    ConsOften hiring paperwork the agency provides new employees with is not accurate. This leads to confusion for the employee during the annual appraisal process. Appraisal questions do not accurately relate to an employee's position in some departments. A lot of outdated software and equipment is in use is various departments. Too many people don't know whom to contact in other departments/divisions for information/assistance/certain tasks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should be more transparent with staff concerning whether a position is supported by grant funding, agency-earned dollars or other means. Create a cross-training module for all employees so that there is a better chance for an employee to have another viable position within the company. No one should be anxious about whether or not he/she will have a job when funding dries up.

    Newer campus in Dedham. Nice people.

    Food Service (Former Employee) Dedham, MA

    ProsBeautiful campus in dedham. it was only built a few years ago. Everyone I encountered there was pleasant and very friendly. There is a variety of residents there, so whether you want to work with higher functioning or lower functioning elders, there are opportunities.

    ConsThe hiring process takes a long time, but HR is very helpful. Parking can be tricky in certain areas of the campus.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    .

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLess frequent layoffs than other industries. However, there have been more frequent layoffs each year for the last 3 years. Parking.

    ConsTurnover in upper management high over the last 3 years. Benefits getting worse each year. Salaries are overall on the low end of market value. WorkLife Balance is non-existent. No opportunities for promotion.
    Managment seems to have trouble maintaining a consistent corporate culture across other locations.
    Bathrooms at corporate campus is horrendous.
    Cafeteria is Kosher and the food produced is average at best. Eating in the cafeteria is awful due the dark lighting and 20 year old stained carpets.
