    I worked at Archdiocese of St Louis full-time

    Pros

    Helping children and teens have stability and finding their way to a better life.

    Cons

    No room for voicing disagreements or concerns. Feeling as if you're to walk on eggshells, being ignored and treated with contempt by co-workers afraid to go against the head nun. Gossiping older women and being shunned for not conforming.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and pay them a higher wage as the budget allows. Be open to employees having valid concerns without making them feel as if they've done something wrong. Respect that everyone is not okay with arrangements merely because you are. Don't be underhanded in nature.

    Pros

    Co-workers were all very kind, friendly, and focused on providing services to those in need. Atmosphere is laid back, never had to deal with much stress.

    Cons

    It's a religious organization/charity so pay is low, raises are low and infrequent. Little if any room to advance

    Pros

    I worked at the archdiocese for about 5 years. It was a wonderful place to gain experience. The people were kind. It is very family oriented. As a Catholic, the ability to go to Mass during work time was a huge plus. Great benefits!

    Cons

    They overpay their upper management and under pay the mid-level employees. There are also far too many "directors" for a large organization. Some are directors of themselves. It doesn't make a ton of sense. If they spread had less generals and more soldiers, the pay could probably be distributed better. Also, there should be clear indicators and benchmarks for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep young, hard working employees (and good Catholics), give more opportunities to advance and stop rewarding people simply for length of time employed.
