I worked at Salvation Army full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

your will have a great chance to climb the ladder if you are pro-active and can think on your own.

Cons

there is not a lot of "hand holding" support, you will only succeed if you can think get things done without needing a lot of assistance or guidance.

    I have been working at Salvation Army full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great people in the field, helping the poor.

    Cons

    If you are not an officer, you are a second class citizen. Intense pressure from headquarters to make aid conditional on participation in the church, despite what they claim.

    I worked at Salvation Army full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The rehabilitation centers have an inspiring mix of some of the most dedicated members of the church and civilian professionals who believe in the cause.

    Cons

    The rehabilitation centers also have a disappointing mix of some of the most hypocritical members of the church and inept civilian employees who do more harm to the clients they serve than good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has several times been a push to handle the organization more like a business. Realizing that when people donate money they do it to see a meaningful social return on that investment. There have also been several times when this new philosophy was abandoned after a short time. I think it can be done, and the organization would be so much more effective and respected for it.
