Support from management

Leadership does not allow for improvement.

Teamwork

Environment does provide the opportunity to collaborate with counterparts.

Freedom to work independently

While philosophy lends it self to be the CEO of your environment, the opportunity to make mistakes is not supported.

Internal Communication

Communication is not unilateral. Information does not get relayed properly or in a timely manner.

Gender Equality

Women have the opportunity for growth. Equality for younger professionals.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits are allowed. Salary is not competitive when work hours are factored.

Work-Life Balance

Time off is not supported. Expectation that you will be available nights and weekends .

Job Security

Never felt safe in company. Growth was welcomed, errors were not.

Handicapped Accessibility

Managers are always plugged in.

Workplace Safety

Safety in work environments were not a priority.

Challenging Work

The population is challenging, but the systems in place make targets impossible.

Inclusive / Diverse

While the company is female driven puerto ricans are the overwhelming majority of employees.

Suggestions for improvement

  • New administration, work life balance, 24 hour security in all facilities, transparency, diversity in leadership.

What I like about the company

The opportunity to provide services to a underserved community.

What I dislike about the company

Compensation, no job safety, hostile work environments, poor supervision, retaliatory practices.
