horrible
middle man (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTApril 13, 2018
The HR director is cut throat; not for the employees whatsoever. Management is weak and lacks actual leadership skills. The turnover is ridiculously high, leaving the people who actually do the real work stressed and often not able to manage their workload. Culture is toxic.

Teacher Assistant (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTFebruary 21, 2018
Overall, CRT was not an enjoyable place to work (as a teacher/teacher assistant). Management was not understanding or supportive. We were often reprimanded when other people made mistakes, but never actually commended for the great work we did individually. The pay was not great considering the amount of work and stress put on you.
Pros
other staff members were enjoyable
Cons
unorganized

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTFebruary 12, 2018
I learned a lot from working at CRT, but overall the experience was a mediocre one. Horrible upper management with a few exceptions. The CEO could care less about the employees that actually do the important work. People work there to get experience and leave to go somewhere they are actually appreciated and will pay them a decent wage.
Pros
Good work schedule, a lot of vacation times
Cons
Ceo, bad pay

Family Service Worker (Current Employee) –  Middletown, CTJanuary 19, 2018
CRT ECE upper management does not care about the staff below them, especially if you are not in the education tier of Head Start. Support staff are ignored when it comes to support and salary

Clerical (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTJanuary 17, 2018
A typical day at work was something fast paste and something lower. I learned how to fax, how to answer the phone calls. The management was good. The workplace was good no complains. The hardest part of the job was learning how to deal with customer with bad attitude. I enjoyed working in this company.

Do your research before working here!
Front Staff (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTJanuary 15, 2018
Too many changes on staff. CEO is never involved. Nutrition Department have 5 directors in less than a year. New people every month. HR Director is after the employees not for them. Its just a place to get hired and do your shift. Staff doesn't run the extra mile. Day Care Home Program and ECE are a total mess! Can't believe how they run this place!
Pros
Nothing- You dont gain anything here!
Cons
Crazy People!

Mismanagement at its finest
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTAugust 29, 2017
CRT's mission as an agency is admirable, and the people on the front lines work very hard and are dedicated to that mission. The biggest problem at this organization is that management is out of touch with community needs and is more concerned with expanding programs than running existing programs efficiently and effectively. With the exception of management, staff salaries are below industry average, benefits are lackluster, and morale throughout the organization is generally low. Most people take jobs here because they want to do good for the community and help those who need it, but CRT is run like a corporate entity that is entirely focused on its bottom line rather than its mission.

lack of support, poor higher up managment, high stress
social worker, teacher (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTAugust 14, 2017
while the staff was great, we were treated like objects easily replaceable. when I started the company had so many people that had 10, 15, 20 plus years. every one of those people has left because of how there were treated, stress of work load, and lack of support. until upper management changes this is not a place to thrive. I miss the kids and families. When I left the turn over was intense. Funding was lost, jobs were terminated and the union is a waste of time and money.
Pros

Cons
uppermanagment, treatment, stress, workload, high turn over

Clinician (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTAugust 1, 2017
Arbitrary, capricious leadership. Human resources did not view employees as "our most important product"; I think we were number nine (number eight was carbon paper).
Pros
Ping-pong
Cons
Sometimes someone would lose the ping-pong ball

Customer service, microsoft (Former Employee) –  Bristol, CTJuly 5, 2017
There was no such thing as a 'typical' day at CRT, every day was different. The children really knew how to brighten your day. The management was outstanding, you could go to them with any problem you had and it would be fixed immediately. The hardest part of the job was being able to give each child the same amount of individual attention, but, the children were the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
great coworkers
Cons
short breaks

The management and higher up were not very fair to their employees. They treated them very poorly with no respect and belittling them at all costs. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Education Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTJune 19, 2017
the Teachers are great and dedicated, but the upper management is crude and awful to their employees. They strive on a culture of fear, and do not help when in need.
