I worked at Senior Service America as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Okay benefits. Flexible if you get sick.

Cons

From the USEPA web site: "The Senior Environmental Employment (SEE) Program provides an opportunity for retired and unemployed older Americans age 55 and over to share their expertise with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)."

SSAI is one of the contractors supporting the SEE program. Think of a SEE job with this company as essentially a step above volunteering and you won't be disappointed. Salaries are minimum wage or slightly above but nowhere near comparable federal salaries. The maximum wage ceiling is incredibly low. In the current job market, one could consider this a potentially exploitative situation for those 55 and up who are having difficulty finding other employment. Administrative staff at the home office make many errors so you have to watch your time sheets and pay receipts carefully. Although this program was never designed to meet essential EPA program needs, it gets used for just this purpose. Employees have little recourse through SSAI if a problem arises. Management is incompetent and not even aware of the stipulations within it's own employee handbook.

Advice to Management

Hire competent managers, improve your accounting practices, pay your employees a more reasonable wage and increase your pay range, be nicer to your people, make an effort to understand and support your employees in a dispute.

    Pros

    Great Benefits Package, including full health benefits, matching 401k, paid vacation and medical leave. There are lots of terrific co-workers!

    Cons

    Atmosphere of distrust and secrecy; unrealistic expectations of employees; no strategic plan; sudden change in direction without explanation or guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Consider employees "partners" in achieving goals and really listen to them. They have a lot to offer. Be more inclusive.
