    Some managers could be more attentive and have a better understanding on what's going on in their department/on their team. We could be better about celebrating individual success.

    I have been working at Houston Food Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Often a company will speak of changing, growing and getting better but rarely does it ever happen. The Houston Food Bank has strongly matured, evolved and established itself as an ever growing identity here to serve the community. I am proud to call them an employer.

    Cons

    It takes people of various attitudes to make a well managed organization work well and sometimes those people don't get along.

    Advice to Management

    Great job!
