      I have been working at OIC of America, Inc full-time

      Pros

      New leadership that encourages an entrepreneurial spirit, professional and organizational growth, collaboration, and innovation. Engaged, enthusiastic, hard-working and intelligent staff that functions as a team. Positive culture and a sense of making a difference in people's lives. New strategic plan with clear goals, activities.

      Cons

      Still working to diversify funding. Still building out infrastructure so sometimes lack of clarity around organizational processes. The good thing is, these challenges are acknowledged and are being worked on!

      I worked at OIC of America, Inc full-time

      Pros

      - Learned a lot about organizational and grants management; great to work with an organization that held the legacy of the Reverend Leon H Sullivan.

      Cons

      - Management needs to be held accountable for arbitrary decisions made; additional transparency is needed regarding human resource policies; minimal to no room for advancement; appears to be no program growth or opportunities even for lateral movement.

      Advice to Management

      - Bring in leaders that can lead and want to work for the Organization.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at OIC of America, Inc full-time

      Pros

      Laid back atmosphere They seem to have finally gotten rid of the roaches and mice Can't think of any others

      Cons

      No sustainable funding plan No infrastructure - even getting a postage stamp is a challenge Building is old and falling apart Lack of leadership and vision No salary increases or opportunities for growth or promotion No support for staff development Lots of disgruntled employees

      Advice to Management

      Hire some real leaders Come up with a real plan for creating an organization that is sustainable Replace the board with members who can fundraise Engage your talented staff to grow the organization instead of shutting them out Treat staff as if they are valued instead of expendable Greater transparency in decision making is needed

      I worked at OIC of America, Inc

      Pros

      Motto is to "Help People Help Themselves." Nonprofit organization dedicated to social uplift. Great history. Flexible work environment. Great work-life balance.

      Cons

      Organization has not transitioned with the changes to workforce development. Fundraising is non-existent. It is a shell of it's former self. No longer centralized. Affiliates are affiliates in name only. All are fully independent.

      Advice to Management

      Improve fundraising and monetary support of the affiliates. Appoint people to the board of directors who can raise money. Look to duplicate successful affiliates who have made the transition to how workforce development is done today (e.g. JobTrain).

      I worked at OIC of America, Inc

      Pros

      Time off, holidays, sick leave, etc. is very liberal. Management could be very understanding about time needed to handle any variety of issues.

      Cons

      Obtuse and incompetent management. Management that felt a sense of entitlement, and never lead by example. Very fiscally irresponsible budget management. Poor planning and time management for preparation for major tasks.

      Advice to Management

      The old management regime is now gone. Current leadership is focused and committed. They definitely need to be proactive in restoring faith in how viable they can be in helping their network of affiliates and former partners.
