I have been working at Glide (US) full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Feeds the homeless. Volunteer department is really great. Health Clinic is world-class. World-wide famous Glide Ensemble (gospel choir). Everything is geared toward helping people become better people. Cecil Williams. You can bump into Maya Angelou, Warren Buffet, Nancy Pelosi and many other well-known people any day - you never know. Always interesting things going on.

Cons

High turnover of upper management as well as lower-level staff. They have split personality disorder: are they a charity, or a church? Executive level management really doesn't know what their doing or have no real direction for the staff. Certain people at the executive level refuse to retire (and they should have a long time ago). They have no shared vision of where the company is or should be headed.

Advice to Management

Why give it? They won't consider it.

    I worked at Glide (US) (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helping the Community and the People.

    Cons

    There is No downside. I've learned so much and was able to work with a Foundation whom I love for what they do and was very bless to grow within the job as well as with the People of the Community.

    Advice to Management

    Very Organized, Good communication skills,
    I've been trained for Domestic Violence, De-escalations, AED/CPR, N.E.R.T., and most of all, how to manage the many different employees that were on my Security Team.

    Pros

    Glide is a neighborhood cornerstone that serves the Tenderloin's people. If you can look past the worn streets, you'll find radically inclusive community.

    Cons

    Financial incentives do not inspire sustainable living. A large portion of the clients are complacent and become dependent on subsidies.

    Advice to Management

    Give your front line employees raises. An experience employee can keep morale high and deescalate situation better. You lose a lot of productivity on turn over
