    I have been working at KRA Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    KRA is truly one of the best places that I have ever work for and I can’t say enough great things about this company.

    Cons

    The employer doesn’t supply any coffee for its employees, which I find so odd? So if you don’t drink coffee, great for you!

    I worked at KRA Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Industry...(Workforce Development) the company helps people get jobs by building them up (mentally), providing and/ or coordinating training, helping participants overcome numerous "barriers" (ie childcare, housing, education etc) to achieve long term employment. Which in my humble opinion is how you make a lasting impact on the participant, their children and their community. Most people work in the industry because they love helping people not to make $$$$.

    Cons

    Difficult industry... the great majority of $$$ is gov't based (ie Federal, State, County) so their is significant compliance requirements... and the $$$ is never enough. As noted in the Pro's... most people work in the industry because they love helping people... so it's not a 9-5pm job. As an industry, staff is underpaid comparative to other industry's... difficult to find and retain talent... Bottomline , our society doesn't value "social services" therefore doesn't invest / fund them adequately
