    Pros

    Excellent Mission, Decent Pay, Great Benefits

    Cons

    Severely Over-worked...constantly burnt out - have not one ounce of energy at day's end - serious lack of communication, thought to be a robot w/out a life, must not mix/mingle w/co-workers, very depressing, and stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to relate to staff. This job is draining and is very hard to take time off despite the hours.

    I have been working at Housing Authority of the City of Austin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The residents are amazing. A lot of freedom to create events and programming. It's rewarding to see people get GEDs and go to college and do well.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Lack of vision, guidance. Overworked- I had three properties and over 500 residents that could contact me for anything at any moment. Very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Divide properties more evenly, properly delegate tasks amongst workers.
