King County Housing Authority Reviews
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 Senior 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.
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 Senior Management – Overhaul the HR department.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
