    I worked at Archdiocese of Philadelphia full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours if you're at the right school, lots of great students to work with.

    Cons

    First and foremost - the Archdiocese is full of hypocrisy. They don't respect the individuals working for them, do not accept differing views or opinions, and to even so much as challenge such notions will result in immediate reprimand from a generic "representative" of HR in a cheap suit.

    The finances are questionable, especially considering how much money the Archdiocese pulls in annually from donations and things of the like. There is little trust in how funds are allocated, considering how poorly paid members of Administration are yet how flexible they are for the top tier individuals. The Archdiocese will be quicker to have protected pedophile priests in the past but not protect a differing opinion to their own "values".

    No health care was provided, only a discounted rate. This completely eliminates any plausibility for the Archdiocese to be a competitive employer for the long term.

    Unlike the Catholic teachings that are spread like propaganda, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia does not practice what they preach when it comes to treatment of employees, empathy towards individuals, or desire to become innovative in the long term.

    Advice to Management

    We all know that you're not even going to take any of the criticism posted or given, so go ahead and just keep up the awful job of poor employee relationships and publicly humiliating yourselves. I for one have a great story to share and will never give the Archdiocese of Philadelphia a benefit of the doubt or an iota of a compliment based upon my experience as a former employee.

    I worked at Archdiocese of Philadelphia full-time

    Pros

    Great group to work for. Management listens and works with you.

    Cons

    Salary low versus other organizations, but benefits of the organization balance it out (good amount of vacation time, easy to take time off).

    Advice to Management

    I do not have any advice for management.

    I have been working at Archdiocese of Philadelphia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice colleagues, low-pressure, safe environment. Students are well-behaved for the most part. Good work/life balance. Opportunities for creativity in teaching.

    Cons

    Salary could be more competitive, better professional development could be offered to teachers and administrators. All of this can vary by school so I can only speak from my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more opportunities for practical and useful professional development for teachers and administrators.

    Pros

    Good co-workers. OK Benefits. Not too many pros to state unfortunately. This agency is not a good place to work.

    Cons

    Management is awful. Pay is atrocious. Workers are not treated well. Too much workload for pennies at pay. No job growth. Paid time off (PTO) system has to be eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Be more compassionate and fair. Treat your workers with respect, you are not better because you have a higher position. Stop overworking your employees and pay them a good wage. Provide job growth based on experience not just education

    Pros

    Some of the students were great to work with. You get free lunches in the cafeteria. Free parking.

    Cons

    Teachers were terrible to work with. Technology is out of date. I was only there for a short period of time but I realized how two-faced everyone really was. The company does not care for your well being. The pay was very underwhelming and the stress was so much that it caused me to have a stroke. I now have to live with the this for the rest of my life and the school and Archdiocese has not even acted to care.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and replace yourselves with competent individuals.
