    Pros

    If low pay and watching the inner circle go to lunch, shop and take credit for your work sound like a pro...

    Cons

    If you start at OHU, you may feel like you want to do what you can for the clients. Its a trap, you can do very little for them. Volunteer your time, but dont make them your career.

    I was overworked and undervalued. Their end-users were neglected for years and forced to use donated equipment.

    I worked at One Hope United as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Their IT department was excellent. 5 star people across the board. I miss working with them.

    Cons

    Sometimes companies can neither keep it together nor get it together. This is one of them. They were also in the middle of outsourcing their IT department when I came on board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees the chance to succeed before you outsource them.

    Current Employee - Chief Financial Officer in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at One Hope United full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    OHU is dedicated to protecting children and strengthening families.

    As a NFP organization, no stockholders or owners benefit when profits are made; all of these $ stay in the organization to strengthen the organization and generate income to support future operations.

    Cons

    The heavy reliance on governmental funding...state and local in particular....is a risk. Relatively weak fundraising results a weakness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find non-governmental funding streams. Strengthen fundraising efforts and results.

    I have been working at One Hope United full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some of the youth you get to work with really show improvement. Great co workers. Schedule is somewhat flexible when fully staffed.

    Cons

    High turnover due to the low pay. The company is a non profit so that is understandable, but they would pay out less if they offered more hourly pay to keep staff and not have to pay so much in overtime. It takes a special kind of person to deal with the youth day in and day out and can be insanely stressful.

    Pros

    Management / leadership at the time was good. Really listened to employees and genuinely cared. Not sure how they are now.

    Typical case management work. Over worked, underpaid. Average salary for the area. Nothing special pops out.

    Pros

    It is fulfilling work and at the end of the day I feel as though I've made a difference in someone's life.

    The only way up at One Hope United is to know someone in upper management.

    Pros

    Fleixbility with work schedule.
    Employee benefits.
    Performance of the agency.
    Reputation of the agency in child welfare.
    Growing areas of coverage

    Cons

    Competence and job performance are not measured fairly in terms of promotional opportunities. Leadership will hire people who are not competent, even when favorable references are received. Friends of the leadership are instead hired. Staff members are not held acountable in a fair manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay attention to your TOP performers. If you continue to ignore them, the success of your agency will be jeopardized severly
