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

    Pros

    Community of Hope is truly a great place to work due to the welcoming culture and the team of people we work with. I feel a connection to the mission in my work and I've really enjoyed my time working at COH. I've had the opportunity to grow with COH and I've witnessed several others who have as well. COH has been named a Washington Post Top Workplace for a few years now and I think it's due to these reasons and many more!

    Cons

    I don't have any to share.

    Pros

    Within this organization there is great potential for growth, they always look within before looking outside if the organization. For me there has been flexibility with my schedule in order to advance my professional skills.

    Cons

    Because we are a non profit the salary does not always match up to the work that you do. Though you will obtain many skills, extra compensation wouldn't hurt.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your employees and keep communication open with them.

    Pros

    Exciting growth happening for the organization, which does create some opportunity for advancement. Lots of new staff and new programs. A respected organization in the area, I think. Some really great staff who work well together and care about each other.

    Cons

    High turnover rate with staff, maybe because of low starting salaries. Diverse staff but predominantly white senior management. Main office location is not very metro accessible.

    Advice to Management

    There are professional development opportunities but those could be improved or expanded. Increase opportunities for staff at other sites to work together or interact.
