I have been working at Catholic Charities USA

Pros

- mission-driven organization that truly does care about its clients and making the world around it a better place.
- good amount of life/work balance.

Cons

- The hiearchy of the organization (and the Church) is imposing and despite the promise that the employee has a chance to share his/her idea, that is merely an illusion.
- the HR and IT departments and inflexible and do not assist employees satisfactorily.
- many managers are selfish and oftentimes inflexible. The mission of Catholic Charities becomes only a nice afterthought.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open a true and transparent process for employees to submit ideas, be more flexible in the use of technology (software updates, use of mobile devices, the use of wi-fi, etc)., make Ultipro more usable and HR should be more helpful in assisting individual employees (because of HR's mistake, I lost over $2000 in healthcare insurance, and they did not bother 1) fixing the problem or 2) even listening to me).

    Pros

    The relationship you will build working with the individual you serve will without a doubt have a lasting effect on you, not to mention the work environment is very relax.

    Cons

    Due to the different type of disabilities the individual you may serve have, some day tend to be very long and stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the direct care professional since they work closely with the consumers their opinions should be valued. Other than that management does a superbe job.
