Good place to work- have to be willing to go with the flow
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
Pros
Work life balance
Cons
Poor pay

The less I say the better
Nothing good to say, I’ve been taught if I have nothing good to say don’t say anything at all. To work hard does not get you very far, but being lazy will get you there

Nurturing Parenting Program
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.

Fun place to work with great people
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.
Pros
Free lunch and good people
Cons
No incentive - stipend

not a bad place to work
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.
Pros
nice mix of people, staff events, benefits are great
Cons
poor advancement opportunities, management needs some training
