    I worked at KRA Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Some nice people for whom I felt badly. They were mistreated and undervalued.

    Cons

    Too many to itemize but include very poor leadership at the top, pathetic work ethic on the part of many (they make a full time job out of texting and watching videos on their iPhones), unrealistic caseloads for poor Career Agents, all about numbers, work in cattle pen tiny workstations, disgusting

    Advice to Management

    Let a professionally run organization "win the contract" with Capital Workforce Partners. Give up the ruse.

    Never worked for a company that was such FOR profit, treat employees terribly, remarkably cheap, no flexibility unless your management.

    think about your employees even just a little, you're driving away good people.

    I worked at KRA Corporation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Assisting the community with obtaining self sufficiency. Team work environment. Many deadlines but still it was always interesting and fun.

    Cons

    Overtime hours are not available due to positions being exempt.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep a open door communication policy.

    I have been working at KRA Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Helping customers who were serious about finding employment.

    Cons

    The biggest con is the company began to downsize personnel, and other staff members became responsible for multiple positions, without additional pay. Some people absorbed 4-6 positions, in additional to the responsibilities they were hired to carry out. Unreasonable expectation.

    We eventually found out that our site would be closed, therefore everyone would be laid off. Last days were staggered based on seniority. No severance package. Reassured that unemployment claims would not be contested.

    Pros

    Room for growth, internal promotions are recommended rather than outsource for new employees. If you want to grow, they have an outstanding professional development budget and KRA will invest $$$ in training their employees. Very good relationship with management and corporate office, open door policy. Managers are great at conflict resolution among staff and stakeholders, and all corporate employees are warm, welcoming and the CEO is very personable! KRA believes in INCENTIVES< INCENTIVES< INCENTIVES!!!!!

    Cons

    Due to some contract provisions employees cannot receive adequate pay for tenure and workload carried

    Advice to Management

    no real cons with management, advocate for better pay for your employees as much as you can.

    I worked at KRA Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Its a minority owned company with programs throughout the country.

    Cons

    Could do a better job in leadership and marketing. Numbers driven only. Not quality. Benefits are expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the bar for professionalism and work on business development. Take severe turnover of staff seriously....
