A quasi government agency
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INAugust 30, 2018
A great learning environment. Heavily politically based so the climate of the administration depends solely on who is in office. It can be a tricky scene but it is great work environment!

HMIS TRAINER & ANALYST (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INDecember 28, 2017
Treated well, good work life balance would recommend to friend looking for employment. Best part about this job is that you can dress casually,

Worst part is the cube farm.

seldom promotes from within
Community Programs Analyst (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 6, 2017
This company does not promote from within, nor does it reward hard work. Very sad to see people leave as often as they do but the pay and opportunities for advancement are minimal compared to other agencies.
Pros
great co-workers
Cons
professional development not encouraged

Autonomy for skilled workers to grow, management tend to micro-manage
Staff (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 8, 2015
Autonomy for skilled workers to grow, management tend to micro-manage, and have little day to day experience. The agency's focus on cutting red tape for its sub-grantee greatly increases red tape for its staff. Co-workers are great to work with.

Inexperienced Management
Indiana HELPS Coordinator through Office Team (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INApril 23, 2015
IHCDA was a great place to work, if you could learn to work with management that was both inexperienced and immature. The Director was a great person, but totally unaware of what the lower echelon management team did. The job was great and provided much needed experience in the training and development field.
Pros
Experience Gained in Training and Development
Cons
Inexperienced and Immature Management Team

The weakest link is the middle management
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INFebruary 9, 2015
IHCDA is a great organization with a lot of great people, doing really valuable work across the state of Indiana. The executive staff is capable, engaged, and motivated. IHCDA is a place where good ideas are given value, and hard work is typically rewarded.

However, there seems to be a disconnect between the upper-level management and the lower-level workers. When the executive staff introduce new programs or policies (such as the Lean Management system) middle-managers (directors and managers) often bad-mouthed the decisions and the executive staff behind closed doors. Although executives are approachable and appear sincerely concerned with the organization and its employees, the positive message is often soured by criticism and negativity from middle management. This drags down the quality of work, ruins morale, and makes for a far more hostile working environment than I believe the executive staff realize.
Pros
Great people, wonderful mission. Benefits are outstanding.
Cons
Petty, self-serving culture. Very political.
