    Pros

    Good benefits, stable job, acceptable salary for entry level

    Cons

    Terrible management especially in client services. Management can do anything to employees. Harm the mission of the non-profit. Very concerned with maintaining "prestige" when inside is hell for clients and for the employees working directly with clients. Upper management promotes "yes-man" workers. All coworkers that I talk are looking for other places to work. In general the organization is working more for men than for women to look progressive..

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of burned out client services management.

  7. Passionate people, but stale

    Pros

    Passionate coworkers, good mission, casual atmosphere, best benefits available, very rewarding work

    Cons

    lack of opportunities for professional development, silo mentality, top town hierarchy leaves little room to grow, older building and office equipment

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the caste system found in older organizations and restructure to be more egalitarian and inclusive. Your younger talent is going to be the future of the organization and should be groomed to take on more responsibilities. This goes for all older organizations in general, not just House of Ruth.
