    I worked at Catholic Charities USA part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working to help others is a what Catholic Charities is about. Helping people through hard times, being the place to go when no one else wants to help. Seeing the light come on in a person's eyes and that smile of thanks.

    Cons

    Low pay and not enough hours to do all the work. Being left out of the loop. No direction on how to do a job and letting just anyone work there. Need to support each employee not just those who gossip and put other down.
