    I worked at Centronia part-time

    Pros

    If you like Non-profit work, Centronia is a great place to be. The coworkers are all really friendly and the work they do is amazing and interesting. It is not a high-pressure environment. If you speak spanish, you will feel completely at home here!

    Cons

    As most NGOs, the salary is not that competitive. Also, there are not a lot of professional development or growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. I have no advice to give them, keep doing the amazing work you do and helping your employees get better salaries.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Centronia part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great multicultural environment, respectful and very friendly staff. The organization have the potential to make a real difference. DC BILINGUAL charter school does not apply to this review because they do actually have a separate salary scale. If you love to volunteering,community service and have limited financial responsibilities then this is a decent organization for you. Great place to practice Spanish. It is a great place to utilize problem solving skills, spend some time but definitely MOVE ON to something else and self reflect.

    Cons

    No guidelines, structure, poor leadership mainly due to the lack of organizational charts. The organization have a huge staff turnover rate and do not expect for someone else to get hire. Pray for interns! My understanding is that they tend to hire part-time employees that end up working full time. They don't believe in hourly wages (how convenient) but you submit time sheets rated hourly which seems a bit unethical to me. What is even more frustrating several divisions consist in only One individual, a director?! Don't let the titles fool you.

    Advice to Management

    Please! Hire quality, not quantity and review organizational charts. Too many individuals bossing around is a recipe for failure. Cost of living is extremely high in the DMV. Highly qualified and LOYAL employees deserve to be recognize and not overworked. Promotions bring more responsibilities rather than financial recognition.
