    I worked at Salvation Army

    Pros

    Nothing. This organization dupes the public into believing it is a needy non-profit when, in fact it is no more than a cult that steals from the community and puts profits over the concerns for the truly needy.

    Cons

    Most profitable non-profit charity/church, lies to public, utilizes slave labor, violates civil rights of beneficiaries, bad for the environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people seeking help for homelessness and addictions like criminals and slaves.

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

    Pros

    You will meet many interesting people, and depending on your role, you will have the satisfaction of seeing many of the faces that are touched by their programs.

    Cons

    The church leaders are also the senior most executive and management roles across the board. This leads to a strange hierarchy of poor leadership by people who are at no risk of losing their titles or jobs. Conflict resolution usually ended in firings or resignations of employees. In my short time there, I saw over 4 dozen employees either get fired or resign out of frustration from an 88 person staff. I resigned after three years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High turnover and multiple firings is a reflection of problems in the highest levels of management - not in the quality of your staff.
