Very trying, sometimes rewarding, but not what you'd expect of a religious organization.

I have been working at Archdiocese of Washington

Pros

Religious holidays and flexible schedule (in accordance with my children's school calendar).
It feels good to know that I'm working within the community, particularly with children.

Cons

If you are a single parent and your immediate supervisor is a religious, assumptions are made very quickly. Sometimes, they tend to talk down to you with complete disregard for feelings and interpretations. Some think that becuase they wear a collar or a habut, they can talk to you as honestly and freely as they please because they are doing "God's work". ... this is coming from ten plus years in the archdiocese at three schools.

    Pros

    The children and parents. It's good to see how the chidren progress over the years. Professional colleagues really do care about their jobs.

    Cons

    The oversight at this organization is seriously lacking. There is way too much automony. At any given time, different schools are operating entirely differently from others. If a school should have less than effective leadership, there is no system in place.
