Great people, upper management needs work
Cafe Manager (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTMarch 6, 2019
Great company and employees. Upper management needs work to understand everyone’s position. Many times when employees leave, the position isn’t filled and more work is placed onto existing staff to handle. Having one Person do three peoples job isn’t affective or productive. In the long run the stress will cause good people to leave, take time off more frequently, or because of illness caused by the Stress of the job. Positions, responsibilities will not be handled properly because of lack of time, resources and accuracy. Partly budget restrictions and lack of funding for each program and department is causing the shortage of man power. But upper management should realize when to hire more staff and people to handle the overload of expectations, mandated federal and state regulations of standards along with the massive amount of paperwork required for funding. Upper management should learn cross training to understand how each department works, and have a better understanding of how long it takes to perform specific daily tasks, for each position with accuracy, affectiveness and competency.
Pros
Good people
Cons
Very Low pay

Toxic Work Environment
Early Childhood Manager (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTJanuary 30, 2019
Company made it very difficult to continue working for them because they have a very toxic work environment. Years of dedication does not matter. Quite a few good staff members walked away from this company, who had many years invested in the company.

ECE (Early Childhood Education)

The worst organization to work for. They do not care about the teachers or other staff members. The culture of the ECE department can be very negative at times.

For a Non Profit/Management is Bad
First Floor (Former Employee) –  Hartford CTNovember 1, 2018
CEO is worried more about herself than the company. She has had DUI's, hires aggressive and rude managers to represent the company. They have a big turn over because people are not happy with the lack of respect management provides.
Pros
Great concept for Non Profit - It could be a great place

Horrible
Program Aide (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTOctober 24, 2018
This is by far the worst place I have ever worked. The CEO has no interaction with staff. Management was condescending. There was no support for staff. It is a very toxic place to work. The only good thing is if you can survive working in this company for more than a year you can probably make it anywhere.

Beware of this company
Health Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) –  HartfordSeptember 12, 2018
This company looks for unqualified workers so they can pay them as minimually as possible. And ultimately the loss is for the children and parents that rely on this service. Continual DCF call on teachers, etc. I cannot tell you how unorganized this whole company was and it wasn’t until they forfeited their Headstart funding that they understood. But it wasn’t too late. This company will not look out for you. Work you to the bone! Everyday there was always people quitting. The rate was insane on the 10 months I worked there
Pros
Major holidays
Cons
Poor work environment, low pay and benefits stressful

Good benefits, bad management
Acting Preschool Teacher (Former Employee) –  East Hartford, CTSeptember 3, 2018
While working at CRT you feel like family with your co-workers, but the management is lacking and unorganized. You will get great benefits and a good salary, but have to constantly struggle of days off due to lack of staff. They constantly have good quality training days, but will leave you on your own to run things at your work. CRT is a great resource for the community and is very much needed. You will get a sense of gratitude seeing how you help the people, but it is not easy to work there.
