    I worked at King County Housing Authority

    Pros

    KCHA is great - one of the top Housing Authorities in the nation. Employees are treated well for the most part - pay and benefits are extremely fair. Lots of opportunity for growth and on-going training.

    Cons

    Under the Public Housing umbrella, the Regional Managers are difficult to work for, though Human Resources does provide opportunity for fixing issues that arise.

    Advice to Management

    Executive Management truly listens to and respects all of its employees and provides ample opportunity for employee feedback of company policy. My only suggestion would be for employees to do an annual evaluation of their supervisors. I believe this would greatly reduce turnover and would allow supervisors a chance to learn and grow within their positions.


  3. Great place to work with excellent benefits

    Pros

    The medical benefits are second to none, great co-workers, one of the top Housing Authorities in the nation, great IT department, excellent properties, excellent equipment, 8-4:30 schedule. KCHA is well funded and hasn't laid anyone off like other Housing Authorities. Very innovative in long term strategies for maintaining, acquiring, and building new low income housing.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy is large and you have multiple bosses. HR is extremely slow and inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul the HR department.
