    I worked at Community Residences Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, ok benefits

    Cons

    The management in the Richmond area sucks, and has always. I have worked there for a many of years. There focus is more on staff than it is on the individuals in which they serve. They are too micromanaging to the point that it is sickening. Everything revolves around budgeting when they are wasting money on too many other things.

    Pros

    Making a difference in the lives of others.

    Cons

    Lack of respect and genuine apprecitation for employees.
    No regard for self care.
    Dictatorship management style.
    Underhanded ways of resolving issues. The claim of transparency is a marketing farce.
    Unable and unwilling to create trusting and collaborative relationships among the leaders.
    Lack of vision.
    Data is not true and manipulated to please upper management.
    Agency goals and objectives are therefore, not data driven.
    Always looking for the negatives.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect.
    Allow leaders to voice their opinions and collaborate on problem solving and goal-setting.
    Look for the positives.
    Most importantly- remove the dictator.

    Pros

    Clients were great, coworkers were friendly and knowledgable. The job is easy to do, if you know how to organize your time. Was a very rewarding job.

    Cons

    Pay is low for the work you are doing. Group home manager was unprofessional and did not follow own rules. You can lose your position for taking time off for medical leave.

    Advice to Management

    Posting a job when someone is on a medical leave with doctors note, is the wrong way to handle committed employees.

    Pros

    CR's mission is to provide quality care to individuals with intellectual/ developmental/ mental health diagnoses. Through independent living skills and providing linkages to community resources, CR is helping people with disabilities live a more independent and dignified life! There are ample career opportunities with different concentrations in the field, that can open other opportunities for growth and development. CR has frequent job fairs, opening up career opportunities to all in the community!

    Cons

    CR works within the guidelines of policy and procedures, federal and state regulations, etc hence the on-boarding process can range from 2-4 weeks to hire as background checks, references, and executive/state approvals must be received.
