    Pros

    Almost everyone here is extremely friendly. There are three divisions here and each specialize in what they do. They place is very clean and professional looking. WCC has great leadership programs and people who are extremely knowledgable and linked in to the community.

    Cons

    Funding can be a difficult problem since they are a non-profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is fantastic. Everyone reports to a 'vice president' in their division. The company values human services and being culturally competent to serve communities. It's a work at your own pace as long as it gets done kind of place.

    Pros

    Everyone from senior management to direct service employees is committed to serving the community.

    Cons

    There is too much inequality in compensation and opportunities for advancement and growth. It varies a great deal between and within divisions.
     I think senior management value and respect employees and the work they do, but this is not always reflected in the workplace. They rely too much on middle management to tell them what is happening at the program level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on improving communication. It will take time for people to feel comfortable being candid.
    Transparency in decision making is needed.
    Professional growth opportunities should be extended to ALL employees.

    Great starting point for my career

    Pros

    Diverse staff and families! Pay was ok, but service experiences were worth it.

    Cons

    Large organization. I worked in a school-based mental health program, and while I enjoyed the work, I always felt disconnected from the main office, last to get communication,etc.
