I have been working at Selfhelp Community Services, Inc.

Pros

The mission is really meaningful with many people doing their best to serve clients, the staff is friendly overall and the benefits are pretty good.

Cons

The senior leadership is too concerned with covering their own backs in front of the CEO to report any real issues and dissatisfaction within the organization. It's not in their interest to discuss real challenges and therefore frustration among the lower ranks continue. The hiring is uneven with many higher level positions being offered resulting in a very top-heavy organization but few "doers" and skilled support staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate, inspire and stop pretending as though everyone else is the problem...the issues always start at the top. It could be a good place to work with a little effort.
