    Company is in need of new leadership

    Pros

    Team Members that we work with are resilient and making best out of their difficult lives. Company offers benefits that aren't normally offered at a nonprofit: insurance (health, vision, dental, life) 100% paid by employer, new laptops, iPhones or phone stipend, 3 day annual retreat.

    Cons

    Job seekers be advised: CEO has tried to make employees write positive reviews about the nonprofit, even tried to implement it as something to be completed by their 6 month review. Leaders (exec staff and directors) model inappropriate behavior for a nonprofit of this caliber: yelling and using profanities at meetings, talking poorly about nonprofits doing similarly important work, engaging in excessive drinking with staff. Direct Service staff and supporting roles do not receive enough support from supervisors or HR- often supervisors don't have the professional development or experience to support or manage. DST didn't have HR department for over 1 year, with a staff of 50+. CEO hires friends of hers as consultants and then quickly brings them on full-time as Directors to avoid opening up the hiring process to the public or current staff.

    Downtown Streets Team Response

    COO

    Thank you for sharing this feedback. We take all feedback seriously and use it as a way to improve the organization. Employees are able to share their concerns in a confidential way and we would encourage you to reach out to the Director of HR (HR@Streetsteam.org) as a means to do so. Glassdoor encourages employers to request Glassdoor reviews from their current employees. This gives employees an additional outlet to voice positive and negative feedback and allows the organization to see where improvement may be needed.

    Pros

    DST is a collection of talented folks passionate about helping the most vulnerable in our society. Everyone is down to earth and it's like a big family. Highly recommend this company if you are passionate about the mission and want to impact the lives of others.

    Cons

    No cons. Keep up the good work and keep expanding the effective model to other cities in the USA to help our unhoused brothers and sisters.

    Great to work with Team Members. They are the heart and the sole of the Agency. The best co-workers.

    Toxic environment is real. Favoritism by Execs are out of control.
