Pros

St. Vincent's School for Boys offers opportunity to help children in deep need, most diverse workforce in terms of background and talent, highest level of workplace camaraderie imaginable, wonderful source of satisfaction in short and long term effects of effort.

Cons

Highest level of minute to minute, hour to hour, and day to day physical and emotional stress ever encountered, high risk of exhaustion and burnout.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More training in psychology and care of abused children. Better and more frequent pay increases.
Find ways to disassemble cliques and old boy networks. Management needs to spend more time in hands-on experience of daily routines. Better dietary and entertainment structures and oversight.

    This is a place for a person with ambition to help people and not make money!

    Pros

    It is a relaxed work environment where they still trust in their employees to do what is necessary for each of their programs to succeed. Since, this is a non-profit organization the little perks given like a long lunch and only working 7.5 hours a day makes it ok to not have constant bonuses. The yearly bonus for Christmas is a nice a perk if and when they have the funds. I recommend Catholic Charities as a place to work for if you don't care to succeed in other ways other than helping people. If you don't care about money and the work you do is because you really want to help than this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Underpaid staff, not much of employee appreciation, such as a floating holiday for outstanding work. There is really no recognition program for those that go above and beyond the call of duty other than for volunteers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair with the rest of your staff and don't play favorites.

    I have been working at Catholic Charities USA

    Pros

    Catholic Community Services is a great non-profit organization that gives back to the community and helps a range of individuals. Leave work knowing that you are making a difference. Pretty flexible hours to work. Good starting pay compared to other related companies. Great jog during school and post graduation.

    Cons

    I felt that there was really no room to growth in my position. Felt like the leadership could have been better and more structured. No bonuses for exceptional work. No budget for extracurricular activities with the youth, so be prepared to do a lot of sitting around or going to the park.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow a weekly budget to take youth on trips. Recognize good work through promotions or bonuses. Be more in touch with the regular workers.
