    I have been working at Catholic Charities USA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I enjoy this job tremendously because I get to meet interesting clients. Even though they are senior citizens they can be very funny and full of history.

    Cons

    The only cons is knowing that some of them suffer greatly from pain and loneliness everyday.. Sometimes more than anything else all they want is some company, which I am always happy to oblige.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At the present time I have no advice for management. I would imagine they are doing the best that they can.
