    -Working with a great group of people that come to work with a purpose and cause.
    -Very good working environment. Empowering to do your job independently.
    -Being community based with a mission that helps people with disabilities.

    Can and has been limited on resources at times.
     Being a non-profit does not allow for the newest and latest tools and equipment but the job does get done.

    Advice to Management

    Expand into more cities. since there needs to be a DePaul in every city out there.
    Continue allowing the employees to voice their suggestions so to keep the culture in tact.

    Pros

    Everyone seems to generally care about the overall mission. They seem to be putting better people in the right management positions.

    Cons

    Wages are well below average for the roles across the board. They are definitely not trying to hire talent, only coaxing them in. This won't keep them for long.

    I worked at DePaul Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the only pros to this job is that you receive a paycheck and your D.P.S.S.T. license.

    Cons

    the Eugene office is run by a female who is to distracted by her own life to concentrate on making schedules properly. she schedules people to work at a site they almost never work and does not notify the person that they will be working on a day and site they don't typically work. she befriends people and then uses personal information she learns against them. she is overtly sexual to officers working under her, constantly telling inappropriate jokes and making inappropriate sexual gestures and comments. she has been report to Human Resources on multiple accounts and they just over look them or try and find a way to fire the officer while claiming it is not retribution.

    Advice to Management

    when an employee finally comes forward about sexual harassment in the work place you should take it seriously and not allow the accused to question the victim in private with no one to protect the victim from more ridicule from the aggressor.

    Pros

    No micromanagement. Management communicates their expectations and they are fair.

    Cons

    Some of the satellite offices do not communicate well with each other. There are disconnects that occur as their are conflicting views on how to best complete a task.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more training on software applications and management needs to conduct more meetings that are shorter in length. No one wants to sit in a meeting for two hours when everything can be addressed in 30 minutes.
