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

    Pros

    Great company to work for in Redding, CA. They work with you to grow professionally and do the best you can, which helps the students grow too. I teach Agriculture and Bill the Assistant Director is always giving me the tools I need to be able to that. Great benefits, hours and pay. With any job you will have things you do not like but I feel Victor does its best to keep everything on the positive side.

    Cons

    At this time I do not have anything for this block.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work...I look forward to many more years.

    Pros

    There Is relatively decent pay, good benefits and flexibility. There is also good vacation time and bonuses twice a year.

    Cons

    There is an intense and unrealistic workload. However, their biggest issue is their new management. There is issues with micromanagement, treating employees with respect and exhibiting professional competence. HR is also their office staff which makes it difficult to approach HR.

    Advice to Management

    Change your management style. Become leaders instead of bosses.

    I worked at Victor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    trainings, work relationships, ability to gain hours and experience, nice office when not in the field

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, heavy workload, you will take work home after a full day, short deadlines, unsupportive supervisors, favoritism, fearful staff, high stress environment, travel to locations that are too far away, most meetings are a waste of time. This job will suck the life out of you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop winging it during meetings; your staff can tell. Be honest about the favoritism and work hard to treat people equally and hold the same standards for each employee. One employee should not be able to get away with things that other employees don't.

    The workers are awesome. Super dedicated to the mission. Love everyone I worked with. Feeling of helping children and families is the best part.
