    Pros

    Great co-workers. You don't take work home. It's a very free environment and everyone works well together

    Cons

    Too many middle managers. Sometimes things get convoluted because of the different agency's in the same spot.

    I worked at Workforce Alliance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay scale is decent and the recruiters I worked with my second time there were very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    They delay sending out w-2s to employees even though there is no reason to delay sending them except for wanting to be obnoxious! The employees that work for them are barely surviving and a lot of them are waiting for tax returns to supplement a below standard income.

    Advice to Management

    Send out the w-2s as soon as they can!

    I have been working at Workforce Alliance (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot knowledgeable and dedicated employees at this company (currently called CareerSource PBC). Unfortunately, they work the lower end positions and cannot facilitate change. The company helps a lot of people in the community and is a needed service.

    Cons

    If you are a minority, it is very difficult for you to grow within the company. There are a lot of unqualified and inexperienced management within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize fair hiring practices.

    I worked at Workforce Alliance full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They will find someone work. However they tend to stretch the truth about gaining full time employment after a 3 month probationary period. The companies down here use these temp agencies to get around the federal government requirements

    Cons

    They pay minimum wage or close to it and earn up to 18.00/hr on the backs of the clients they find job placements for.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to clients and tell them that after 3 months a full time position with the company will be made available. Offer the clients some truth to job placements. Inform them that the company will be making a lot of money every hour they make. Acting as a slave may be easier to handle if provided for warning.

    Advice to Management

    Involve staff on ideas or projects. Ask don't tell

    "Senior level directors not knowledgeable of programs"

    Pros

    Mid level management supervisors and monitors try hard to keep morale up, share performance info and be involved in teamwork. They are the ones who possess the most knowledge and experience of federally funded programs.

    Cons

    Morale is low, do not consider family needs as excused time off even if just a few hours are required.

    Advice to Management

    Hire individuals for mid-level and upper management/directors who possess knowledge and experience in programs before promoting or hiring for these positions. Work on building morale and setting goals that are achievable. If no one achieves goals then management should review and not punish team. Perhaps a more Participatory Management style should be considered instead of corporate mind set of "do it anyway!"

    Excellent knowledgeable and very caring staff

    Cons

    Sometimes customers that come in can be a bit difficult but that is due to their circumstances and misinformation they were given before they came into our office.

    Good leadership caring and always available for you
