Pros – My coworkers and I are sincerely dedicated to helping foster teens improve their lives, and a lot of very competent people work here. The pay is fair for most positions, and health insurance starts the first day of employment.
Cons – People are over-worked and under-appreciated. Turnover is huge because firings are quite frequent. Think you have a permanent job here? Think again.
Advice to Senior Management – If you treat your people with kindness, they'll work even harder than they already are. Threatening us with job loss is demoralizing. Also, give us the time and resources we need to do our work properly.
