    I worked at Salvation Army full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You work for an organization in the business of helping people.
    Great hours, generous paid vacation and holidays off.

    Cons

    Because it is a religious organization most of the people in charge are ordained ministers who do not have any professional experience in the position they are in.
    Totally decentralized decision making. No one wants to be a leader and say no to bad decisions.
    Nepotism is a way of life with whole family's working there.
    If you are not a member of their church you can not get promoted to upper management or department head.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive in overseeing department heads and making sure rank and file are being treated fairly. Promote people based on ability and not because they are related to some high ranking officer.
