In the midst of a renewal where they are trying to clarify and adjust their service delivery. Results in a lot of grey area and lack of direction/clarity for staff. Communication is terrible, both within the agency and delivery to those accessing services. Pay is on the lower scale offer a good work life balance Not a lot of opportunity for advancement Upper Management is very approachable
Work life balance
The Nurturing Parenting Program is a Strength Based approach for low-income families. CUPS is a very inviting place for families to learn and develop skills as well as a trusted place to bring children to accomplish the same. I strongly recommed this organization for both employers and persons alike.
I was a Volunteer at CUPS so a typical day for me was reviewing project documents and reports. Management was pretty relaxed - co-workers were quite supportive and friendly. My job was hard because there was sometimes lack of defined terms and directions. The most enjoyable part was the contribution I made and the friendships created.
Free lunch and good people
No incentive - stipend
But could be way better. Good place to work if you enjoy helping others, lots of programs and resources. To many complainers and practical jokers. Not a very mature staff. Management could use some training on recruiting, ethics and promoting employees. Some employees do not give 100% and work 5-6 hr days and take too many days off leaving workload on others. I mostly enjoy seeing someone move on in life after learning the skills to help them become a successful member in society.
nice mix of people, staff events, benefits are great
poor advancement opportunities, management needs some training
