    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Praxis Housing Initiatives (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The interaction with a diverse group of people, was an learning experience for me. My outlook on the way people lived charged immensely..

    Cons

    Over worked and under paid. They expected you to do the work of three people. The staff is disrespectful and prejudice somewhat.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to investigate more thoroughly the way incidents are handled Instead of taking one person"s word.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Praxis Housing Initiatives full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place for learning how to work with difficult populations (social service).

    Cons

    Shady organization. Senior management lack qualifications to run such an agency. Unprofessional staff all around. Most staff have only a high school education and lack the skills needed for woring with people. Mandatory trainings are almost always irrelevant to the type of work done at the agency. No room for advancement. Vocational department lacks resources to run a successful program. Poor benefits for employees. Agency does not cover health insurance for spouses and children - encourages employees to use goverment health benefits for children. Buildings are dilapidated and working environment is dirty and poorly maintained.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to listen to employees. Must provide better and more relevant training for staff.
