    I worked at Phoenix House (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is an established nonprofit with a great mission and dedicated staff.

    Cons

    Like at many nonprofits, staff are vastly underpaid. I received only positive feedback and promotion over my four years there but never got any of the pay raises I asked for. Ultimately I had to look elsewhere for pay growth.

    Advice to Management

    Staff and middle management are very dedicated, but higher-up leadership tended to be out of touch with the reality of working conditions, hours, pay etc. More leadership "getting their hands dirty" would really help morale.
