    Pros

    Thorough training, decent pay in comparison to industry standard, opportunities for advancement, comfortable work environment, good managerial support, relationships with individuals.

    Cons

    No guaranteed holidays off, residential so care required 365 days per year. No benefits for part time (good benefits for full time though). Cannot call out because someone else will be mandated.

    Pros

    good benefits, great individuals to work for with far more intellect than they are given credit for

    Cons

    poor pay compared to other companies, lazy employees, employees treat individual like they have a disease that is contagious, not all, but too many. no benefits for 6 months and way too many trainings during probation period.

    Advice to Management

    they should start caring about their senior management more, stop worrying so much about money and worry more about their employees and clients, meaning: stop tearing down perfectly good houses, buying new houses and start paying your employees more money, stop just filling positions with a body because it doesn't work and stop filling empty rooms with just anyone, make sure they fit and are compatible with the people already living there. you are getting too big and forgetting about the important things, like your employees and we are the ones who got you here!!!!!! plus you can only move up just so far, then nothing.

    Pros

    Working with and meeting some amazing clients and coworkers!!! Thanks to SEVEN HILLS I learned how to recognize an when a company's UNPROFESSIONAL & IMMORAL!

    Cons

    Working with the "higher ups" resembles the era of Hitler. Instead of caring about clients and employees which are ultimately the foundation- they steal cheat lie and punish to avoid any negative publicity.

    Advice to Management

    Shut down you are ruining lives. Maybe open again after running a business with morals and professional progression.

    Pros

    I was promoted twice in less than two years. This a great place to start out, especially if you are a new college graduate.

    Cons

    The pay is low, and there are no incentive based salaries or bonuses so many who are employed here do bare minimum work which can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Incentive based pay, continue to promote within.

    Pros

    I worked here as a intern and loved it. It's great because your helping people and you even get a lunch break. You also can ask for help if you need it which is good in my book.

    Cons

    The only real down side is after working 9 to 2 my feet hurt and got tired after work. The only bad thing was it was a busy place which I'd rather it not be but that is good for them.

    Pros

    The Seven Hills Mission is one that employees can be proud to stand behind. The company does provide minimal assistance to help advance your education through tuition assistance and decent benefits with more paid time off than many other industries. Overall, a good starting place to get non profit experience, but have a back up plan.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible at all levels with no opportunity to advance and earn more. The current management and senior leadership team is somewhat outdated- many have been in their jobs way too long and lack ability to have a fresh perspective or contribute to existing staff developement and long term organizational goals in methods that were not outdated in the 80's and 90's. This company is not committed to long term stability or opportunity for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Shake up some of your senior and middle management teams who are past their experiation date- the AVPs are a great place to start and positive change will soon follow. and employ motivated, talented leaders that do not simply parrot the surrent buzz words and flavor of the month without understanding their meaning. Hold leaders accountable for staff morale and bottom line results and let go of those who no longer serve you with enthusiasm and are stuck in their ancient ways.
