    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Community Action of South Texas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    14 paid holidays, serve indigent, non-insured population at several locations.

    CONS: Traveling involved. Computer system is terrible and frequently out of service.

    Cons

    Poor communication throughout organization. Inexperienced leadership with poor leadership skills. Disorganized. No consistency. Challenging to serve indigent and uninsured who are usually very sick. Now provide medical services for MHMR psychiatric patients at the MHMR facility and psychiatric patients also come to our clinic to see the doctor. Challenging to work with psych patients.

    Pros

    No pros for this company. Everyone complains about how miserable it is working for them.

    Cons

    No room for advancement.
    No lunch break; you have to eat what you are serving the kids and the kitchen hardly brings enough food.
    Trainings are ridiculous.
    No consistency. Have been told several times that I may not have a job because of low funding, however a new curriculum was bought and cameras were installed into early Headstart classrooms.
