    I have been working at Eden Housing full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Eden Housing is truly a Best Place to Work. Not only has the organization received that award several times, it is also a best place in practice each day. Eden staff work hard each day to get their jobs done; however, this generally does not involve a lot of overtime nor weekend involvement. I personally enjoy coming to work everyday because my co-workers really care about what we do and care about the people we serve. We have a very diverse workforce and a genuinely welcoming environment. The input of all staff are regularly requested and valued.

    Cons

    Commute, rapid growth, unsure political climate

    I have been working at Eden Housing full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only pros i can think of for this company is that they provide work shirts and a company phone for business

    Cons

    Goes through employees like crazy, takes for ever to get mileage unless you are in the corporate office. It feels like as long as corporate gets their money they do not care about the properties. The vendors never get paid which leaves workers in a bind. The pay is not where it should be i feel as if the staff at the properties get bare minimum. Can barely make ends meet with bills. Healthcare copay is ridiculous if i was to add my spouse i would not be able to pay bills or buy food for my family

    Advice to Management

    Fix the problems in accounting so vendors and your employees can get paid in a timely fashion and raise the hourly wages of your employees. Also lower the health care costs of adding a spouse to the plan
