    Pros

    My particular location has great coworkers, flexibility and the opportunity to build experience while contributing positively to the community.

    Cons

    Non-management employees are not valued and there is no room for career growth. It is often disheartening to hear the false marketing of a non-profit mission when the ultimate goal is to create a retail empire. At a mission oriented company I would expect less stratification between the business and upper management of the company and those who fulfill the mission of helping the community go back to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the floor and look at how employees are valued. Also, put your mission above your greed.

    Pros

    Non-profit. Looks good on resumes. Flexible schedule. Good pay.

    Cons

    Bad communication. Will not hire full time unless your a manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication. Once a month meetings to keep people on the same track and talk about issues/changes. Update communication log more often. Treat employees equal.
