I worked at Seattle's Union Gospel Mission (More than 3 years)

Pros

It was wonderful to see the growth in a lot of the clients from when they first come in to when they leave. Some of the staff are very down to earth and easy to get along with. Made some long lasting friends.

Cons

Noticed favoritism between staff and clients. Lack of authenticity/transparency and wearing of "masks" among staff and management.

Advice to Management

Remember why you wanted to work at the Mission. Remember what grace is and that no one is better than the other...everyone is on a healing and growth mission. "Grace w/out accountability is enabling". Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    A lot of fantastic people are drawn to the work at the mission because of the work that it does. Many of the people that I worked with will be lifelong friends.

    Cons

    UGM desires to make an impact in a variety of ways, which is good, but it leaves some ministries critically understaffed and under resourced. Staff get burnt out as a result.
