Assistant Coordinator (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – February 24, 2014
Pros: constantly changing immigration law field
Cons: unsecure funding
Challenging and interesting job, but very little job security. Each year you must travel to Springfield to advocate for the budget to keep the funding for your program and position. Also the culture of the organization is political and difficult to maneuver.
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – August 31, 2013
Cons: long hours and no support
Erie at one time was a great place to work but with so many changes over the years it has become all about the money and not about the families it serves. The lack of support for teachers is sad to say the least if you want to work hard and not be acknowleadged for it then this is the place
IT Support Staff (INTERN) (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – October 16, 2012
a small, solid, and purposeful non-profit that really serves the community, they definitely make their mark. In an age where non-profit dollars get siphoned off the top for ridiculous over-head, Erie does 10 time more with 20 times less.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – September 6, 2012
Tutored adults and school aged children in areas they needed help. Management was friendly and directed you well. Marketed the company to the neighborhood through telephone calls. Environment is very easy going.
