    I worked at Shelter Group as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good overall company and policies. Apparent growth potential. Different locations for opportunities.

    Cons

    Horrible management on a power trip. Doesn't listen to anyone that isn't her "bestie".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to management on-site. Don't get stuck in the past with people that don't want to listen to facts or reason. To grow, you must be open to new things.

    I have been working at Shelter Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They truly live by their STARS Core Values of Service, Teamwork, Action, Reputation, and Success. It's a great company to work for and I feel so lucky to have found them. The pay is fair, the benefits are great, and there is plenty of work-life balance. There is also a good balance between structure and freedom to make decisions and you always have the support or direction when needed. They value their associates and recognize them regularly through awards ceremonies, appreciation days etc. Despite the large company size, there is a definitely "family-feel." The communities are charming, and really make the resident feel at home.
    It is clear that they were chosen as one of Baltimore's Best Places to Work for a reason!

    Cons

    While this may not be a true con, there is a lot to learn, but they have an excellent training orientation and mentoring program with tons of resources that truly contribute to your success.

    I worked at Shelter Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great downtown location, within walking distance of Inner Harbor

    Cons

    The leadership is very poor, and management wants to instill fear in the employees. No sense of teamwork and they expect you to be a slave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't manage on your emotions. Look at the facts before passing judgement.

    Cons

    Auto deduct 30 minute break daily. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should really reevaluate this policy on auto deducting breaks from pay. It creates negativity among employees.
