    I have been working at Catholic Charities USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked in several localities and they are very different each. Coworkers are supportive of each other. You can bet that all are there to help others rather than themselves although they may have very contrasting ways of thinking they are accomplishing that goal. One can have a great variety of experiences or none depending on the office structure. Starting out I managed an office with a great young staff and lots of travel and perks. Three years later at a different location I had no perks and was stuck in a sparse office with a bunch of old horrible morons and a management that couldn't find their way out of an open box. One can move up down or laterally very quickly.

    Cons

    Coworkers can be self righteous, especially if they are ones who come from money and feel like they are doing the world a favor. They do not understand poverty and tend to feel sorry for clients, which is derogatory I believe. They are in the vast minority but negatively effect the whole company. Locations will have a strong tendency to resist change even if they are very unsuccessful. This is probably because they are not trained to make a company successful, being a non-profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support morning prayer in office by encouraging employees to get together and take fifteen minutes before beginning daily work. The most pleasant locations do this.
