Great company for the community - awful to actually work for the company

Pros

Feeds the homeless. Volunteer department is really great. Health Clinic is world-class. World-wide famous Glide Ensemble (gospel choir). Everything is geared toward helping people become better people. Cecil Williams. You can bump into Maya Angelou, Warren Buffet, Nancy Pelosi and many other well-known people any day - you never know. Always interesting things going on.

Cons

High turnover of upper management as well as lower-level staff. They have split personality disorder: are they a charity, or a church? Executive level management really doesn't know what their doing or have no real direction for the staff. Certain people at the executive level refuse to retire (and they should have a long time ago). They have no shared vision of where the company is or should be headed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why give it? They won't consider it.

    Pros

    Amazing mission driven organization. Does outstanding work in the community through their incredible programs.

    Cons

    Strong personalities of Founders who refuse to let go. Impossible to maintain momentum in the Fundraising department with constant strifes with Founders/Executive office, insane turnover, no defined goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't see anything changing at Glide until Executive Leadership shifts.
