    I worked at Greater Chicago Food Depository full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The mission of the Food Depository is fantastic and most of the employees there are great to work with, even if the turnover rate is very high and employees usually do not last longer than a year. Everyone works toward the mission and pitches in to help when need be.

    Cons

    The senior management is horrible and has created an environment of fear and manipulation the staff calls it "The GCFD Fear Tactics" and employees are so micromanaged most leave feeling confused about their abilities. They hire staff in upper management roles that have no experience or skill set in their area. They give you tasks with no direction and when you ask for clarity you are reprimanded and insulted. They then make you do all of their work and take the credit for it. Believe me the reviews you read here are not the rants of disgruntled employees but an honest evaluation of the upper management. The people who work here want the organization to succeed and care about the mission but can't stand to stay because of the way they are treated and micromanaged or in some cases not managed at all. I was treated horribly by my supervisor for more than 3 months when I finally spoke with HR about it I got no support and the unprofessional and disrespectful behavior continued. The senior team did not even support the staff they sided with the supervisor. They do not support a work life balance and expect you to be there from 8am to 7pm and you will get spoken to about your hours if you do not. The communication between upper management and staff is horrible you will not get a complete story or explanation from anyone. Getting time off for an appointment or family function is an ordeal. All salaried staff are treated like hourly employees. You are not allowed to have an opinion or bring your creative ideas to the table, they will be dismissed and you will get spoken to by HR when you speak your opinion in meetings. The expectation is you sit at your desk do what you are told do not talk to your coworkers and ask no questions. Staff in management roles are treated like administrative assistants and it is rationalized by saying "it is a different kind of environment here". You will get hauled into an office and spoken to consistently about petty matters. I would not accept a job offer here it is to the detriment of your career. There are much better places to work in the Chicagoland area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The board needs to come in and clean house. The CEO goes through a new administrative assistant every 2 months or less because the person cannot handle working for her. She is also only friendly with certain staff members. Senior Management should stop playing favorites with staff members and treat everyone equally. There are certain departments that need new upper management staff that know what they are doing and can help their departments grow and flourish. This place is a mess and people resign at least once a week and there are always job openings. It is not due to growth it is due to people leaving because the environment is so horrible to work in.
