    I worked at Catholic Charities of The Archdiocese of Washington full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Catholic Charities for almost 9 years from a front line staff person to mid-management. So much has changed over the years I worked there. I love the agency and its mission. The division directors really care about staff and the agency and work extremely hard. The experience an employee has is largely based on their direct manager. The staff are great and you feel a common tie together. Clients are truly put first.

    Cons

    Lack of training in the beginning but this may have just been my manager's personality.
    You have to fight for change and responses from admin, finance, facilities, etc.
    Lack of operational guidelines across programs.
    Lack of communication and collaboration across programs.

    Advice to Management

    I'm a clinical social worker have worked in social services all my life so far. I see the complexity of poverty and social services. I wish the agency would direct more attention to preventive services rather than "band-aid" programs. As a catholic agency, more emphasis should also be placed on empowering, strengthening and maintaining families and community. For example, the agency puts so much money into homeless services and zero dollars towards eviction prevention.
    Incorporate more employee recognition, including financial.
    Listen and incorporate more advice from mid-level management because they see across the spectrum.
    Need more streamlined services. The process, quality, and rules you receive could greatly vary depending on what program a client is in. Each program makes up their own decisions. I understand the reasoning for this (different funding sources, clients, the merger of agencies, etc.), but more could be done to have continuity.
