    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Century Housing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rated one of the best nonprofits in the US. Best benefits in the industry and highly competitive salary package.
    Upper management and HR do a lot to create a culture of support and teamwork. Educational stipend; Flexible benefit account; life-insurance; LTD; and most major holidays observed. Regular employee gatherings and celebrations as well. Highly mission oriented and passionate staff, particularly at Century Villages at Cabrillo, a non-profit subsidiary.

    Cons

    The company is growing and evolving. Expect to be challenged creatively and intellectually on a daily basis. This is not a job for the faint of heart.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demonstrate value at all levels for all employees. Continue to invest in employee appreciation days. The little things that you do matter.


  2. "Century is a conservative organization with limited opportunty for growth, but is a very comfortable place to work."

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Century Housing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are very generous, exceeding most comparable employers
    Management generally provides a wide degree of autonomy
    There is not an attitude of austerity or parsimony as at other organizations, especially nonprofits

    Cons

    The company greatly underutilizes its assets (people, capital) in how much social impact it delivers
    The Board and most senior managers are not dynamic, concerned with maintaining status quo rather than seeking financial and social returns on investments
    Few demands are made of employees, little is expected, and nothing is communicated well
    Comfort of working environment (generous pay, benefits, etc) lead to stagnation from lack of turnover

    Advice to Management

    Create opportunities for employees to move out and move up
