    Pros

    Great opportunity to assist many with significant barriers to employment get back on their feet.

    Cons

    Some members of the management team will do anything to get ahead. Disrespect, insulting language and intimidation exists as some may consider new hires showing promise to be a threat. It can be nasty. Maintain a very thick skin.

    Advice to Management

    Listen carefully to those who work with and for you. They deserve respect.

    Pros

    One can make good money if one places a lot of jobseekers.

    The management is inept and human resources is very unhelpful. The company seems to try its best to deny one's rightfully earned bonuses every which way it can.

    Frontline managers need to be better trained.

    Listen to all staff

    Pros

    Providing services to the customers, great medical benefits, and location.

    Cons

    Lack of training, internal process is unorganized, high turnover, high caseload, parking and security.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the training curriculum and hire an onsite employee training coordinator. This will be important once you are awarded new contracts throughout the US. Increase pay for case managers, we work hard too. Do more appreciation events for the employees.

    Pros

    This company provides you with many great opportunities to advance your career. Being that the company is still growing and is constantly awarded new contracts each year; the people that are here typically moves with them and grow pretty quickly into management roles. The skills you receive and experience here is invaluable.

    Cons

    No accountability for ones actions here. The environment is not professional most times. Many changes due to premature processes being put into place then having to be changed (constant issue). Lack of paid time off. Time off days are lumped together as PTO days (about 10-12 to start). Benefits are constantly moving toward being better, but if you have a family it will be very expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Potential managers should be vetted differently than how they currently are.
