I worked at Project H.O.M.E. full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great work for the city of Philadelphia and the mission is great, to end poverty and homelessness in Philadelphia. Most of the middle management and other regular staff is amazing.

Cons

They work you way to hard. if there is a job description, its outdated, and ever-changing. They make you wear many many hats and don't compensate you at a fair rate. probably the worst pay rates in the city of Philadelphia's non profit organizations, yet they run on a 20+million dollar budget

Advice to Management

Keep up with your employees, be more caring of them and the work-life balance. this is overlooked and creates a grudge against management.

    I worked at Project H.O.M.E. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The mission is great, as are the majority of people working there. People are passionate about helping the clientele move to the next level in life. The pay and benefits are great, the properties are beautiful. There are so many components that add value to the life of the consumers, but with so many moving parts there are gaps.

    Cons

    With management moving so fast to get new projects underway they are spread thin and aren't able to properly integrate new employees into their roles. You can have all the knowledge and skills in the industry, however, without good leadership to guide you into the Project home "way" of blended management, you will get frustrated and lost. If you ask for help you're ignored, it's sink or swim. And beware of the mean girl clicks, if they don't like you, you're iced out. Onboarding should be a process that involves all departments that your position has to interact with, if just to meet the person on the other end of an email. Communication is left up to read interpretations and can be done so unfairly. There is also no weekly follow-ups/check-ins to gauge your performance. At least under Chantell Powell Brinkley's portfolio. Beware if you go for those positions, if she's intimidated by you, your work ethic, or knowledge, you're let go due to personality conflicts, not based on job performance. Turnover costs the company money, so invest the same amount of time in acclimating your new hire to the role and culture of the company as you do in searching for the candidate.

    Advice to Management

    Put into place a structured onboarding process for property managers, there are allot of interactions with many departments, it would be invaluable to the new hire to be guided through how the blended management works and what the process flow looks like. Also, institute performance check-ins with new hires biweekly. If there is a performance issue, try coaching before letting good employees go, either through quitting our letting one person who hasn't invested any time into guiding or coaching the new hire properly in their role, to make the decision to let them go.
