I worked at Salvation Army full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Interactions with all populations, those who need assistance the most; work is quite different each day, so keeps one's interest and challenges you to grow; dedicated employees who love what they do and the clients they serve; personal and professional rewards far outweigh other benefits. The reputation in the community is second-to-none.

Cons

Low salary, often linked to direct funding or grant funding, which easily goes away. Heavy workload combined with the need to do more, with less resources and personnel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher pay will result in more qualified staff. Higher pay will result in greater retention and staff morale. Investing in staff, regardless of their education level, will result in better services to clients and the community, thereby increasing The Army's reputation and service delivery. There are highly qualified staff, with similar values and beliefs to the Army, who would love to work for (or stay with) The Army if they could afford to.
