    I have been working at College Track full-time

    Pros

    Love working with first generation college students in high school and college. It is a fantastic job.

    There is always so much to do. Building a wellness program is a great challenge and one that I really appreciate.

    Encourage staff self care and create manageable job descriptions. Streamline practices and work smarter.

    Pros

    Company culture was very relaxed and it felt like a close knit community. Positive environment with passionate people working together to help the students.

    Cons

    The place still used mostly paper and was a bureaucratic nightmare. Little room for career growth and pay was not the most attractive. But it is a non-profit after all.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at College Track full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The mission, students and people are great. The students you work with will make your days worthwhile. Good people. Generous vacation offered.

    Cons

    The massive turnover (40% last year, 25% this year) make it a difficult place to work. Institutional knowledge gets lost when people leave, and it does not feel like a stable environment.

    Everyone has a 'director' title, which means no one is a director. It is a place where you can go from a coordinator in you previous position to a director title. There is no consistent career path for employees. If you are in the inner circle, you have a different experience as there are many known favorites.

    The culture can be competitive, combative and petty. Most people leave because their managers have no idea what they do.

    No paid maternity leave in 2016!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to teams, empower people to lead and maintain the very special culture that has been in place over the years.

    I worked at College Track part-time

    Pros

    College Track offers a close nit family environment that allows the students to feel welcome and comfortable. The program provides a lot of tools for it's student to strive throughout their four years at high school such as SAT and ACT classes, Music Workshops, Community Service events, and 1 on 1 tutoring.

    Cons

    The students may become too dependence on the resources provided by College Track. The payments for tutors was also late on occasions.

    Advice to Management

    I would advice the management to be more punctual with payroll. I would also recommend that management keep up the excellent work.
