    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 Technology is out of date.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.

    Pros

    If you want to feel that you are in high school again, you have found the right place; not because it is a high school but because the teacher's/administration's behavior is consistent with that of immature high school students. Yes, that is the most positive thing I can say.

    Cons

    -Terrible pay
    -No training
    -Lack of support
    -No opportunity for career growth
    -Low morale
    -Unrealistic expectation
    -Scapegoating (get ready to be blamed for things, even if you can show hard evidence that it was not your fault)
    -Cliquishness (people definitely make you feel like an outsider)
    -Favoritism
    -Criticizing others before asking questions

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employees to succeed, put them in a position to do so instead of setting them up to fail

    I worked at Archdiocese of Philadelphia (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many wonderful, dedicated, humble people work at the Philadelphia Archdiocesan Pastoral Center. Most of the people who work there share a common sense of mission and a passion for the Important work done there, especially in the fields of Catholic Education and Social Services.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity for advancement. Lack of support for professional development. Technology and processes are decades old and there is a deeply ingrained resistance to change. Not the best place for women looking for leadership positions.

    Advice to Management

    Human resources and technology groups need to step up and drag the place into the current century. Standard business practices are routinely ignored.
