    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Diversecity

    Pros

    It has a nice building.

    Cons

    If the manager provides you with too much direction, that means she may feel insecure about her own job.

    Advice to Management

    The management know what they are doing and what they have done. They are smart so nothing to say.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Diversecity full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unionized, same pay as other non profit, new building but they sacrificed the good location for having bigger rooms for CEOs and putting all staff in small rooms giving no respect to privacy where all clients can hear each other !

    Cons

    Unionized ( lool) it's a fact as this will trigger bumping every now and then where employees start taking each other's position even if they don't know how to do the job which leave most positions occupied by unprofessional employees. The non profit organization is run by caty women who are very snobbish and rude. HR is nightmare. If for any reason, they want you out, they know that they are unionized so they will... play tricks and accuse u of false things to fire u. I've seen lots of excellent employees leaving suddenly because of this management especially the two leading women CEO and her CEO. Working there is a nightmare.

    Advice to Management

    Protect your employees and provide a safe environment for them. CEO should know what is happening in the settlement department especially managers. Good luck

    "Working at DIVERSEcity"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Diversecity

    Pros

    Great programs that are need by the community - staff that care and are committed to helping people.

    Cons

    I would not recommend working for DIVERSEcity Community Resources Community. They have sacrificed client care and programming in pursuit of the prestige of a new building. They have great programs and staff but fall short in Leadership and Vision.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people - they are your greatest asset. Loyalty is a two way street.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Diversecity part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Help the community. It gives you chance to see different working environments.

    Cons

    Being a free lancer job the hours of work depends on the size of the community that you are interpreting for.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get more hours of work for your interpreters.
