Community service oriented, but no clear sense of direction

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD

ProsThere's a strong sense of community among coworkers. The organization provides internal training resources for employees, including paying for state required licenses (child care services).

ConsThere is little to no room for growth within the organization and the pay is abysmal (under $30k for full-time white collar position after two years). I've witnessed certain members of the management and executive team speak down to employees in condescending tones, or sit idly by as interpersonal conflict arises between coworkers within the office. The organization, while community service focus, lacked a clear sense of direction. They had great ideas on what they wanted to do for the community, but it wasn't clear to the employees what their steps were for getting there.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake recognition of your strongest employees and promote from within. Provide professional training and/or educational reimbursement opportunities for employees who wish to grow professionally within your organization. Clarify your organizational goals and steps for attaining this to all of your employees, not just the executive team and community board members.
