    I worked at Housing Authority of Baltimore City full-time (Less 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.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement with the right credentials and good work ethic
    Easy work
    Good hours
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Facility is old and not well kept
    Unprofessional and unorganized
    Treated like children by management
    Bad neighborhood
    No healthy food options nearby
    Low pay

    Advice to Management

    Create incentives for improved productivity and focus more on the productivity of the staff and less on whether or not they are in the kitchen at 8:30. Create a professional environment where hard work and meeting deadlines is rewarded. I think most staff needs a productivity plan of their own so that they can be held accountable.

    Pros

    Opportunity to gain experience in the public sector. Opportunity to grow if you can get administrators to like you

    Low pay compared to other housing authorities in surrounding counties. Only way to get a promotion is if the managers and administrators like you, no matter how hard you work.
