Negative Outlook

I worked at Federation of Organizations full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Intern-friendly workplace, help new professionals to learn their craft and even hires them as staff sometimes, opportunity to engage directly with mentally ill/substance abuser/ex-offender clients and assist in their recovery process.

Cons

Poor training (mostly online), poor supervision, conflicting and constantly changing priorities, always in crisis mode, emphasis on billing/documentation over needs of clients/staff, lack of communication & collaboration between depts (even when housed in same facility). Poor pay scale compared to other nonprofits. All of above leads to a burnout environment with a high turnover rate which has impacts on client care.

Advice to Management

Stop setting people up to fail. Get your act together as leadership.
