    Pros

    Flexible schedules, relaxed dress code

    Cons

    Horrible HR, over worked and underpaid, upper management doesn't care about the well being of their employees. High turn over, no one cares to find out why. They just fill the position with whoever, which takes months and causes more work on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Visit the sites and experience the work

    Advice to Management

    The upper management is totally disconnected and clueless!!

    Pros

    I have no positive input, working at Services for the Underserved was a horrible experience

    Cons

    Services for the Underserved exploits some of their employees, whereby some employees are beyond overworked and under paid for the amount of work they do and also treated without respect by senior staff members

    Pros

    Great organization that helps the community. CEO is amazing.

    Takes way too long to hire new employees. As a result, current employees have to take on larger caseloads, sometimes for over a year... Very low salaries...

    Pros

    moderately competitive pay, depends on the program.

    Cons

    Disorganized, never sent me location or time for my first day of orientation. HR is not responsive to employees, covers up harassment of senior management, does not hold employees accountable for poor work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when they make complaints about Regional Directors and VPs

    Pros

    Fair pay, diverse staff and career advancement opportunties.

    Cons

    Administrative issues, High caseloads, Horrible quality assurance- they care more about billing than helping individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Apply for grants to increase budget so that staff can focus on aiding client instead of billing.

    I worked at Services for the UnderServed full-time

    Pros

    Lax work attire, working phone is given and a tablet. You get to work in the field with little or no supervision. Company is connected to the City and will continue to grow. Very few staff members plan to stay with the agency.

    Cons

    Minimal effort to help residents. Poor training practices at the program level. Agency is unable to oversee new developments due to the large turnover. Brand new housing developments are in bad condition with no repairs being made. Never ref. clients internally due to poor results. Agency will continue to get funding.

    Advice to Management

    Just because the residents are mentally ill it does not make it ok to ignore their housing complaints. Low income housing does not have to be slum like.
