Stressful, unappreciative environment
Career Transition Specialist (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHApril 25, 2018
I would not recommend working with DESI to anyone unless you enjoy being micromanaged and constantly put down by the management team. Quantity is more important that quality and the only ones who actually care about the participants are non-management. The age group is complex and expectations of the job are unrealistic.
Pros
Can take vacation after 6 months but only get one week per year
Cons
Unrealistic expectations, micromanaging, high turnover, lack of appreciation for line staff

fun place to work at
Recruiting Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 9, 2017
it was a fun place to work for. The company has a contract with city of Chicago for WIA, which was to help Chicago people to get back to work. It was a non profit program and a challenged physical location to work at. It required a lot of patience and customized approaching when taking care of job seeker from different category. I learned a great deal from this opportunity

no career advancement

Competitive yet balanced work atmosphere
Outreach and Admissions Project Director (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 18, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is that you work under supervision but it is not micro managed. Allows you the freedom to be creative and work at your own pace just as long as the monthly quotas are met.

Some self training. It is up to the staff to figure out how to be successful

Working with 16-24 is challenging but very rewarding.
Admissions, guidance and outreach counselor (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOFebruary 18, 2013
There is no typical day here which make this job very interesting and never boring. This company puts 16-24 year old through the Job Corps program and assists them with job placement upon completion.

Management controls the Culture

When management is great, employees have a favorable environment and when management is bad, employees have a not so favorable environment. It can be a great company if you can get managers who truly care about jobseekers and the employees who provide direct services to those jobseekers.
Pros
some job stability
Cons
stability of good management

It is an okay company
Site Manager/Chicago Career Center (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 22, 2012
Management control the culture of this company. When management is bad, employees will have a not so favorable experience. When management is great, it is a great company to work for. Unfortunately, the powers to be are not very selective in picking great leaders/managers.
Pros
stability
Cons
employers are subject to bad managers
