    I have been working at Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free coffee, public transit accessible, and they also pay for trainings.

    Cons

    Lousy wages for everyone except senior staff. They require that new employees speak a second language so that you can do translations, this is in addition to your regular duties with no extra compensation or insentive. The insurance covers barely anything so if you have an illness, having a baby or expect to be in the hospital a lot get alternate insurance, because they will leave you with a 4 figure medical bill without batting an eye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if your going to offer garbage insurance atleast provide a decent living wage. You are paying us only a few dollars above the maximum to qualify for any government assistance which is like a slap in the face. They also show no staff appreciation, only to those who kiss up but are clearly incompetent. Keep sailing this ship the way you are it wont sail for much longer.

    Pros

    If you are just starting out, MBHP offers great experience in the non-profit/ client services field.

    Cons

    The organization itself is great and really helps people. But the work is tedious, boring and stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to recognize and appreciate your employees' hard work and dedication.

    I have been working at Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership

    Pros

    The opportunity to assist families in need of housing and related services

    Cons

    You pay for insurance that does not cover your normal annual physical ( they bought the cheapest package); no raises in two years- and with people leaving in droves we are all working twice as hard for half as much. And as always- chronies...if they like you , you don't have to be competent. I left in order to keep my sanity. Their standards for staff are too low for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your mid level managers, provide better pay scales ( like the kind YOU get) and allow your mid level managers to support and supervise their team

    I worked at Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership

    Pros

    Good benefits, great flexibility between work/life obligations

    Cons

    Not a terribly supportive senior management staff. Failure to communicate on key strategies or expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When in doubt, over-communicate to staff so they don't draw wrong conclusions about policies or procedures.
