    Doing what you can on a shoestring budget.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWorking hard to make a difference in people's lives and in the communities. Praying for and with the people is a great example for all involved.

    ConsStress levels are high for all employees, pay scale is low and benefits are miniscule.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on the spiritual aspect and less on the government grants. Chasing both gives your management a mixed message.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Case Manager (Former Employee) Brooklyn, NY

    ProsThe Salvation Army gets the most highest respect, from me , I've worked for them for a total of 6 months, and when I witness the planned lay-out this company demonstrated for Homeless population, it touch my heart, and I was working with some tainted heart felt co-workers, still the Salvation Army Plan Assessment was very well organize and strategic for the many families residing at the Salvation Army Shelter.

    ConsMy experience didn't come as a surprise to me, due to the field that I'd worked so hard to studied the underservices of many clients with different many axis of mental health conditions. The cons were that I couldn't stay aboard with the Salvation Army Corp.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to keep your protocol alive , encourage the needy, help the helpless, and please consider at anytime if you ever need myself to be apart of your team again , don't hesitate to contact all numbers in HR-dept.

    Many Thanks to the Salvation Army of Brooklyn NY
