    I worked at Salvation Army full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great mission, great people, great flexibility

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucracy which slows the pace of business and is quite costly.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the bureaucracy for efficiency's sake. Be willing to adapt to modern business practices rather than clinging to old tradition.

    I worked at Salvation Army full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the people are great to work with. The ability to openly pray and worship is great. Incredible vacation and sick package. The corps do great work.

    Cons

    Upper management is all related. There is one department where the director oversees her sister and brother-in-law. They create jobs for family at high rates of pay.

    Advice to Management

    Gut the headquarters. You have officers and directors spending obscene amounts on frivolously things. Cars, new carpet of officer housing, expensive lunches with each other, $25,000 decorating allowances??? Come on-- people are in need. And while you are at it get a real HR department that can stand up to the nepotism. You can't fight for a job when you are going against an entire family!
