    I have been working at Community Residences Inc. full-time

    Pros

    The individuals supported are absolutely extraordinary. Just like most other group home settings, it is fairly routine, so aside from emergency crisis situations, you know what to look forward to.

    Cons

    CR is all about image. What looks good and keeps money rolling in. Basically have to be a con artist to survive here.

    Advice to Management

    Get in and get out. It is great professional experience, but no one should spend more than 3-5 years in one position here. Move up or move out.

    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.
