    Pros

    The atmosphere at Children's Home and Aid is the most rewarding. We are like a big family here and everyone here is so friendly and helpful. There are many staff who have been working here for over 20 years and they love it. I have personally been here for 6 years and only would leave if I started my own business or won the lottery! They are so family friendly and have received awards from the United Way for being a Family Friendly Workplace.

    Cons

    The fact that it is a non-profit agency makes it difficult at times to stay within the tight budgets. Sometimes management is so loyal, they have a hard time getting rid of staff who are not good workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!

    Pros

    So much gained experience! I've been able to improve my writing and see real results as journalists have picked up my pitches. I like that my supervisors we all so helpful ad really wanted m to get the most of the experience.

    Cons

    I honestly don't have one! The only thing I would say is the office is kind of segregated lol. Each department is kind of off in its own world. I think every friday there should be like a bagel or cookie meetup in the lunch room. Just to get everyone talking to eachother more.

    Pros

    During my short time at CHASI I have found the office environment to be a comfortable, inviting workplace. I enjoy my CHASI family and my job is rewarding and challenging.

    Cons

    Long drives to the office are not my faviorite part of working for CHASI but they take good care of employees for the amount of driving that we all do.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is to keep doing a great job on running such a wonderful agency. The work we do is so imperative to our youth that it is important to take care of the people who sacrifice so much to service our youth.

    I worked at Children's Home + Aid full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a very good supervisor and felt the management was supportive. I gained great experience during my time with the agency.

    Cons

    For those who have master's degrees, the pay for case managers is not much higher than it is for those with only bachelor's degrees.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommended paying masters level workers in case management positions at a higher level to show value for the higher level of education, if it is something the organization does value.
