Pros

It is something to put on the resume. If you are unemployed and this is all you can find other than a fast food restsurant job, then work at BDT.

Cons

Management is really one-sided and does not like being challenged. They ask for feedback, but they are only looking for compliments. Management is strict about political correctness, but people in management are nasty themselves in many ways. They cannot be trusted to keep their word. It is best to keep a low-profile and get out of there asap.

Advice to Management

Be grateful for your employees, keep your word no matter what, and change the schedule to allow for more free time and an hour lunch. Make sure that the political correctness policies and any other company policies are applied to all equally.

    Pros

    casual dress and great COWORKERS when I was there. Pay is solid in comparison to other Non profit agencies

    Cons

    Management is a joke! There is no room or flexibility at all. They make ask your opinion but they dont really want it. You get pulled into meetings and put on probation constantly over the slighest "wrinkling of feather" to direct superviors. I am extremely professional and they are not at all, but promote it then dont follow their own rules.

    THERE IS NO ROOM FOR ADVANCEMENT AT ALL. THERE IS NO SENORITY AT ALL!!!

    Sure you help people most of the time but it is a pain in the A#$, especially when youhave to call seniors out of the blue and ask them 100 questions to complete an application.

    This job is perfect for someone who likes to suck up to management and loves talking on the phone to incompetent, hard of hearing seniors.

    Advice to Management

    Award your devoted and hardworking employees who have been with you through the ups and downs of company changes. Hire competent friendly people, not a bunch of college drop out bums.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Casual dress code. Close to transportation. Pay is better than other non-profits. Good benefits.

    Cons

    No room for advancement at all. Seems like seniority/ time invested into the company does not matter. Mostly Outbound call center work which makes you feel like a telemarketer. Feels kind of like school in the sense where you have to let people know when you are going on break, lunch, bathroom, etc. They ask for feedback but really only want positive feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Make things streamlined (If someone from management can bring in their child when they don't have school, why can't a regular representative do the same). Offer more time off and better raises.
