    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Five Acres full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The agency focuses on what is most important which are the children and the impact they make in their lives. The focus on mission and permanency is clear. The leadership team is engaged with the workforce and cares about the quality of work.

    Cons

    This work is not for everyone. Staff that can't to do the work should realize it's not for them and leave versus complain.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Five Acres (Altadena, CA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The former Associate Director of HR was amazing; she communicated her love of the agency and its work. She immediately introduced me to the former Executive Director and Director of Philanthropy (my future boss) and they were equally committed to the agency's work and communicated a strong feeling of family.
