Great cause ... poor management

Current Employee - Program Director  in  Renton, WA
Current Employee - Program Director in Renton, WA

Pros

Under ideal situation, there are four important criteria in a good job ... interest, excitement, challenge, and fulfillment. After a year here, I can only say there were lots of challenges and it was interesting.

Cons

Constantly told there is an expectation I need to work 60+ hours a week to get "all of my work" completed ... because of this, I consider the compensation as poor. My Supervisor/Manager is a work-acholic and a micro-manager and expects everybody to do the same ... which results in lots of unreasonable demands on her part and lots of stress on my part. Job description and work expectations I was told I when was hired either never materialized or were never completed. This was mostly due to constant changing priorities ... thus after a year, I've lost interest, am no longer excited and don't feel fulfilled or satisfied with this job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find managers with better employer/employee skills ... and understanding of US Labor laws.

    Pros

    Immediate hiring because of short staffing

    Mostly part time positions because they do not want to pay for benefits; too many different managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in the staff and maybe less people will leave
