    I worked at Community Action Partnership full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great employees, managers and clients. Constantly changing work environment, never the same job always evolving around our clients needs.

    Cons

    Biggest con was discovering after I had been hired that I was hired to intimidate problem clients; not in my nature to be intimidating. Was also hired because as a substitute employee; I was expected to pickup available shifts, at first that wasn't a problem and I was paid well for the work I did. Eventually, I was working so much and so many different shifts that my own personal life started to suffer from a lack of availability. In at least two cases; I was expected to work for 24 hours with only 3 hours break. Also, management expected absolute perfection; sometimes the goals weren't adequately explained. Also, management was too friendly to the fact that I was an ADA employee.

    Advice to Management

    This was a constant refrain from the top down; better pay for the amount of work expected. Also, they needed to hire more employees to get better work coverage.

    Pros

    The opportunity to make a difference in your neighbor's lives.
    Excellent annual leave/sick leave.
    401 match.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    Not a lot of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay and people will never leave. If trying a new program, discard quickly if it's not working well. Realize that staff is incredibly busy taking care of day to day business, so to add something new on top of it with no increase in pay creates a lot of stress and questioning.

    I worked at Community Action Partnership full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly staff who care about what they're doing. They organized an enormous, successful national convention in San Francisco despite looming budget cuts.

    Cons

    Washington, DC is an awful city that is far too close to the politicians who slash social safety nets left and right. Meetings at neighboring nonprofits were awash in apathy and incompetence, compared to only a slight trickle at CAP.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline as much as possible, automate the tasks that are delegated to arthritic fingers.

    Pros

    We help low income people-I feel I make a difference in the lives of others. This agency offers a lot of helpful trainings and they are also very family oriented. Never a problem to take time off for personal use. They have a generous vacation policy, as well as holidays paid...even your birthday! They also pay for a single healthcare and dental plan. The healthcare is Medica and isn't the best. I recently resigned my position there because of the low pay and moved out of Jamestown.

    Cons

    Low wages and also the fact that there is major middle management weakness with site supervisors. The communication between site supervisors and Head Start teachers is weak at best.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more. The wages are unbelievably low compared to other Head Start facilities.
