    I have been working at Housing Authority of Baltimore City full-time

    Pros

    strong benefits package and willingness to provide opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    too much micromanaging and doesn't truly cater to the low income consumer. Pay is too low for the amount of work and stress one has to deal with when it comes from decisions made from HUD.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Housing Authority of Baltimore City full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Insurance benefits, tuition reimbursement after one year, paid holidays, close to major transportation outlets. The mission of the agency to house the poor is to be commended.

    Cons

    Inadequate funding, influx, nepotism, untrained employees, disgusting and antiquated office building, extreme low pay, dangerous location, discrimination against outsiders, low pay and the list goes on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Too many long-term employees doing the same thing and expecting different results. The entire senior staff should have been replaced when Graziano was fired. Morale is very low at the agency and anyone with half of a brain is trying to get out. This agency has a bad reputation in the housing arena.
