Great Mission, Inept Leadership

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Edgewood Center for Children and Families full-time for more than a year

ProsThe staff are committed to the mission of the organization. They work very hard, and genuinely care about the outcomes for clients.

ConsThe leadership has no idea what is going on. Leaders make lots of money, while the people working with children are making $13 an hour. Lots of injuries.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve the staff. Pay them what they deserve. Stop putting old business friends into positions of power and firing people that are there for the right reasons.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
