Inclusive and fun workplace. Incredibly supportive.
Certain branches need to work on management. But the company as a whole does their best to support their employees and the public in many significant ways.

Does not apply
It is a good place to work with great people. Sometimes it is hard to feel like you actually got things done since children are still on the site and walking around.

I enjoy working with CAPK
The people I interact with are very nice and respectful. I have learned a lot with working for a non profit organization and what great programs CAPK has to offer to the community. I also have a great Director that I report to.

Poor Management
Management allows bullying and gossip, as well as joins in. Management does not assist with issues, but are quick to put down their employees for coming forward with concerns. I would not recommend this organization to anyone wanting to make positive changes.
Cons
Poor management, bullying, rude program managers

I love working in the location.
Small classes, lots of support, steady hours and nice pay.

The staff is friendly and the Director is always willing to help in any way that she can.

Unappreciative
Good staff, poor management. Work at times was slow. Management would be upset for the lack of work flow but still nothing would be done about it. Very unappreciative.

Productive
Working there were a great place too work. I’ve met new people, gotten alone with everyone, and made sure I did everything I was supposed to do and more. I also learned too keep everything in place and organize, keep areas cleaned, and too communicate with customers in a proper manner and introduce them too who I am and asking them for help

Indispensable part of the community
The agency does important outreach work to an often neglected portion of the population. Clients are treated with respect and celebrated for accomplishments.

Great Co-workers
This is a place where co-workers are willing to support one another for the mission of the organization. Management style is so-so but the Executive Director does a great job in ensuring employees are taken care of.

Sad place to work find work elsewhere
Stressful, advancement only for friends or brown nosers, you don't have to have experience in order to become a supervisor. The funding is spent frivolously, you have to be careful to whom you communicate with, The gossip makes you advance through the ranks. I have seen them hire inexperienced and then finally fire you six months later when they find out someone else has been doing all your work for you. Also they hire temps keeping them in limbo for over a year and promise them a position. They demote you if your getting older in age over 50+ years old, within the company If you get a interview opportunity it's based on a score, it's not on what you know in experience. Not worth the pay, and the company needs a whole restructuring from main office to the 19th street location.
Pros
Potluck, close to home, paycheck was small
Cons
Demanding co workers, two faced back talking, pretending they are on your side
