    I worked at Centerstone (Washington) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits--medical, dental 100% converage.

    Cons

    High turnover rate due to seasonal position.

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate employees' contributions of organization's success. Without the employees, there is no growth. A lot of talk behind Staff but no actual improvement made with Staff.
    Rethink important values within the organization thus creating a stronger workforce.
    Accountability, productivity, celebration are all equalizers contributing to an organization's success. Current manager needs more ROMA training and is not fit in current role.

    Staff lacks tools for those complaining about seasonal position hence poor work output. An educational program needs to be reestablished to help Staff and community when they are laid off.

    Pros

    Interesting exposure to social service landscape in Seattle-King County/Central district.

    Programs work in silos. CEO cares little about staff and operates out of self interest. Compensation is below market rate for social service industry in Seattle.

    Listen to your staff.

    I worked at Centerstone (Washington) full-time

    Pros

    A few good-intentioned, caring staff (sad for those that stay, most are leaving in droves). If you see a job opening here - run!

    Cons

    The unethical practices at work here should keep anyone who values their professional reputation (or donor funds) away.

    Programs are held up as functioning even when they are no longer in existence, ineffective friends are hired to do substandard work at a high pay rate, certain staff and volunteers are kept on due to the "management's" unwillingness to manage and their very real fear that the community will see Centerstone (CAMP) for what it is (and has been). A sham.

    This community needs an organization that will run the food bank, energy assistance, financial education, and other programs with the community's needs at the forefront, while holding up non-profit standards of ethics and fiscal responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Current leadership should resign.

    I worked at Centerstone (Washington) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I am a former employee, and I loved serving my community. The experience in hands-on direct service delivery was invaluable.

    Cons

    Leadership (Mgmt) is not transparent about the operations, not qualified to hold their positions, low view of staff and clients, questionable financial practices. The executive director and the board of directors have different views on the operations of the agency.

    Advice to Management

    Resign
