I worked at Good Shepherd Services

Pros

I worked for Good Shepherd Services for 4 years before starting graduate school and I really only have good things to say about them. Below are some of the Pros of working with GSS:

1. The organization is extremely well-run and filled with competent managerial and executive staff.
2. The organization really supports its employees achieve their career goals and offers wonderful opportunities for professional development.
3. GSS pays substantially higher than other non-profit social service agencies and provides raises on a consistent basis.
4. There are many opportunities to advance within GSS.
5. GSS recognizes its employees for outstanding work.

Cons

There is only one "con" that I can think of:

1. Sometimes GSS has too much loyalty when it comes to their staff. This means that there are some staff (very few) throughout the organization that probably need to be removed but haven't been yet because they've been with the org. for so long.

    Pros

    Doing something meaningful for others, as well as for myself. Seeing the development of the kids, and the potential for growth in the range of your job.

    Cons

    My immediate supervisor is incompetent, and there is the policy to keep one's hours just below that which would entitle one to benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institutional self reflection.
