Support from management

There is no support from management even though they think they are very supportive. They do not want to here the negative. Only looking at the dollar signs not the staff needs.

Teamwork

One department does not know what the other one is doing

Internal Communication

Extremely poor communication. You are responsible for things and you are not kept informed.

Gender Equality

Even though there are women in some management positions, it is really a boys club. Women do not get the same rate of pay as men. They say differently but I have facts as to a male in the same position making $20,000 more.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They have gotten rid of a lot of folks who have been there for years; not always based on performance

Overall compensation for your work

Underpay

Job Security

They continue to lay off people. They call it reduction in force. No warning. You are just told you don't have a job.

Workplace Safety

They don't care about staff safety. Many programs are understaffed which lead to safety issues.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Need an administration that cares about staff not just the money.

What I like about the company

The clients

What I dislike about the company

Management does not listen to the staff that work in the programs.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More support for staff rather than continuously changing management. Also the pay scales for higher degreed positions are not comparable to other similar positions and some programs that only require lesser degrees are paid more.

What I like about the company

I have met many people who are passionate about helping families improve their lives.

What I dislike about the company

Support staff continue to be cut which makes it difficult to provide the level of care our clients deserve. Then management is let go because we are not meeting our goals; however they are not the problem and are trying to support us as best they can. The job asked of any one person is often impossible in the time parameters required.

What I like about the company

My company does it best to help the less fortunate and needy population in our state. The kids and parents that other places will not provide care for due to reimbursement, we will.

Company Culture

The motto doesn't match to actual reality of this company

Support from management

0 to no support. Nearly all the management is less than 6 months employed. The staff is more educated than they are in the daily working of the company.

Teamwork

Good teamwork with all the colleagues.

Internal Communication

Communication is notifying they've fired more good employees and those left have to pu the slack.

Overall compensation for your work

This is a big fat NO NO NO unless you're an executive or their assistant who keep getting raise while others are terminated.

Office / Work Environment

Barely tolerable.

Work-Life Balance

That's ok.

Company Image

In the trash.

Job Security

There is NO job security no matter how hard you work or loyal to the company.

Workplace Safety

That's a joke. MLK campus is constantly under gun fire ry.or burglary.

Challenging Work

It's challenging because they're fired everyone and those left have the work of 3-4 people. p.s. They keep sending new reports, audits, procedures to b done daily on top of the work already to be done.

Support from management

Top leadership overwhelmed and not familiar with complexities of program. Unable to provide support or didction. Unwilling to admit limitations

Career Development

Depends on which program you are working in. Career development for techs depends on attaining higher education in same field or certification. In Child Welfare contracted program the funder has begun to recognize employee retention issue and address with incremental step increases. HR unfortunately is very slow in advancing the employee and approving increase in pay level

Overall compensation for your work

Pay in the contracted program is lower than other agencies doing same work. Paid time off is equitable and FMLA is overly charitable. Medical insurance premiums are high with high deductables
