    I worked at Gateway Foundation full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, probably some of the best people I have ever worked with in my department. The PTO was good when you could get it approved. I also enjoyed working with clients and seeing them improve.

    Cons

    Management had unrealistic expectations of staff, training was minimal if at all, micro-management, gossip was everywhere and you had to choose your friends wisely. At one point, a group of co-workers got in trouble for conducting a private prayer group in one of their offices. Safety and ethics were issues which ultimately lead to my decision to leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to control everything and trust your employees.
