    I worked at Neighborhood Centers

    Pros

    They paid extremely well for a non-profit. Unfortunately, this makes them think they can treat their employees like absolute garbage! The paychecks were wonderful, but my well-being is so much more important.

    Cons

    This place is an absolute joke! Management thinks that they are royalty. I understand that this non-profit helps many and that does wonderful work, but NO ONE KNOWS WHO THEY ARE! So management, chill out and get off cloud 9.

    There is no sense of respect for anyone, even your peers. If you have a good attitude, believe in working as a team and want your division to succeed= DO NOT APPLY! Everyone believes in throwing others under the bus and doing anything they can to brown nose the executives!

    I have always been a hard worker, but this place is an absolute sweatshop!

    If you work there now, GET OUT OF THERE! There is life outside of NCI and there are people that respect and appreciate their employees!

    If you are applying, STOP, and apply somewhere else!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Answer your own email and get over yourself! You are paid WAY too much to not lift a finger. Stop being the biggest ego-maniacs and come back to planet earth and respect the employees that actually get your work done.

    I worked at Neighborhood Centers full-time

    Pros

    The company compensates their staff well. The company offers benefits immediately upon hire and benefits are fair to their employees. Vacation and sick days are earned automatically.

    Cons

    Management has unrealistic expectations. They don't listen to suggestions or acknowledge scope of problem. Tend to do what has been done in the past even though unsuccessful. Does not support their team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a team that is dedicated to creating training material that can be used globally or allow the team protected time to complete. Work as a team and as an individual person. Listen to the team and show results to suggestions not just allow one person to make the call. Especially when that person does not know the culture of each specific area.

    Pros

    The company has good benefits.

    Cons

    Company does not provide adequate training and has unrealistic goals for their employees. Management is not supportive with ideas or changes presented. Wants to fit a square peg in round hole type of mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide adequate training, listen and support your staff. Work as a team.

    Pros

    Opportunity to engage with the public and help families and the community. Provided a good foundation for future career experiences.

    Cons

    Small staff, everyone vying for the same opportunities for advancement. These types of jobs typically offer low compensation because positions are grant-funded, so always having to fight for funding, and uncertain year to year if you would have a job.
