    I have been working at Enterprise Community Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people in the office are what I believe people say for. I also feel the mission is what draws people into the company. There is great camaraderie as well.

    Cons

    Be prepared to learn the job quickly as it is sink or swim when you come onboard. Diversity is a real issue that is not properly addressed and for an organization that works in affordable housing, they don't focus on race.

    I have been working at Enterprise Community Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people are very nice.

    Cons

    Leadership leaves a lot to be desired. No information is shared; everything is kept behind close doors. People within my own department are obnoxious. No team consistency.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and stop keeping everything so secretive.

  3. "Great company"

    Pros

    Great mission, great people, excellent work life balance

    Cons

    ECP is a non-profit, salaries are lower than for profit, but in line with other non-profit organizations, if not higher.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, strong mission, good health benefits

    Cons

    Too many closed door meetings by top-heavy leadership. Then announcements about change made to staff without enough care about their needs/consequences for their jobs. Growth nearly impossible. No development ladders for possible promotions shared.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink process foe promoting from within. Don't claim transparency and then hide information.

    Pros

    Great mission and the rank and file truly share in the mission. Teaming approach is sometimes effective but their are silos.

    Cons

    Very poor HR practices no formal feedback sessions or 360 evaluations. Senior and VP level managers in several instances have very poor people management skills and really do not care about their staff. Yet the company will take their word and not take into account facts provided by staffers that the VP is not qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with the performance evaluation process especially for new employees. No employee should ever be surprised with being let go at the end of the probationary period. Best practice is to have on going feedback session and corrective actions plans throughout the process. This was far from my experience.

    I have been working at Enterprise Community Partners full-time

    Pros

    -Great People to work with on individual teams
    -Competitive salary and benefits
    -A wide variety of community development-related activities to learn about

    Cons

    -The organization serves many different stakeholders engaged in different parts of the community development process/industry, which requires a lot of care in messaging and treatment of issues. This can be both interesting, but can also slow down processes as more perspectives get taken into account.

    Advice to Management

    -focus more on organizational culture and creating a supportive environment for the valuable staff you have!
