    I have been working at Community Action full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Benifits - Good programs - Good Early Head Start and Head Start workers

    Cons

    The managers suppress growth, and look for a yes person with no thoughts of thier own. The culture is very poor. Several safety concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes to have rewarding employees, stop thinking of them as a temp. employee. Top exec. look at your middle management and evaluate them based on thier staff, you will find they're not worth the money your paying them..

    Pros

    It was great helping families.

    Cons

    The pay was horrendous and at least once a week was a meeting at a remote location that was pointless.

    Advice to Management

    Pay those in the trenches at least a third of what upper management makes that never sees a client.

    Pros

    Being around the kids is fun. I love working with the children. Have 8 kids per class for every 2 teachers.

    The amount of work you do is not worth the amount of money you get paid. Don't ever have enough time to do paperwork.

    Pay more attention to employees needs.

    I have been working at Community Action full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The coworkers are great, the work done is important. I have the best team ever. I would never leave if I had a choice.

    Cons

    The pay is low because it's a non profit and the job can be frustrating. At least frustrating for me because I can't always help everyone as much as I'd like.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing your employees. Make sure you hire people who fit well with the team that is already in place.
