    I have been working at Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of Washington as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You will get the chance to work with amazing, inspiring co-workers. The work is hands on, client interactive and fulfilling. Wonderful chance to help real people.

    Cons

    The only con is that the job may seem spread thin on resources, but this issue is common to the non-profit world, generally.

    I worked at Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of Washington part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The training was very good and I liked the pay and the hours.

    Cons

    Too few people to do the job well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people and let them do their jobs. Structure individualized training and feedback. Cut back on micromanagement as a practice for the whole group and use if for those who need it.

    I worked at Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of Washington

    Pros

    Numerous social service programs allow consumers many life enhancing opportunities. The evening shift offers time flexibility to complete daytime tasks.

    Cons

    Senior management was incompetent and unable to provide solutions to serious problems. They support each other's needs and entertain their own ideas without there being a 'trickle down factor."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inservice training and ongoing organizational/infrastructure development is sorely needed. All staff need to have diverity training to deal amicably with various cultures and lifetyles.
