Here you will get to help people, and work with many great people who also want to help others. They are very focused on money - paying bills for clients, providing financial counseling for clients, and not much else. The primary focus is money management, the expectation is that you will refer the client to another agency to deal with any other issues. I was disappointed with how behind the times the agency is, the only thing they regularly use their computers for is email! There is some serious nepotism, but also a lot of trust of their employees. They run on grants, so no one's job is safe except the family members'. As long as you don't try to rock the boat its not a bad place to work and the staff is very friendly.
great coworkers, flexible scheduling, independance
lack of benefits, unstable funding, nepotism, money-focused
