Pros

Friendly atmosphere
Religious at its core, but won't offend those who aren't zealous Christians
Opportunities to transition into different roles over career

Cons

"Silo effect" seems to sometimes stiffle good ideas being picked up from one department to another
Leadership tends to favor known entities versus bringing in fresh perspectives from outside of the network

    Pros

    On the job experience, learning all aspects of retail,product knowledge

    Cons

    Some customers are rude and sometimes staff flutuates to fewer than 5 at times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what some of your managers' suggestions who have over 20 yrs in retail at big box stores have to say. Have cash assistance volunteers orientation more intense before sending to stores.


  2. Organization with great people and some serious dysfunction

    Pros

    Great people who care about the mission. I consider them friends as well as coworkers. You really do feel like you're doing good in the world when you put in a full day's work.

    Cons

    Pretty bad dysfunction. Skeptical of technology and change. Cultural split between Atlanta and Americus headquarters is a real problem

    Advice to Management

    Shift headquarters to Atlanta. Embrace change and new technology.
