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

    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.

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff.
