    Heart, fulfilling mission and commitment to the well-being of employees. The operations and practices I learned rivaled what I experienced in the private sector.

    Continue to expand and nurture the partnerships with donors in private sector; and continue to immerse in the community like you have always done and never strayed from!

    I worked at Salvation Army full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most employees and officers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Nepotism and inflated egos by some officers and divisional commanders do exist. The Salvation Army does great work, and most employees are wonderful with but since there are multi-generations of officers and their kids working there those officers sometimes take it for granted and act like "divas". All officers are legally ordained ministers and get all of their expenses and educations paid for, and I have seen some divisional commanders (Lt. Col, Majors, etc) act like kings and throwing fits. The higher the position, the more they are provided. Most of them will claim they don't make much money and their wives don't get paid, but in the case a divisional commander they may have both a home locally and a vacation home at a camp.

    Advice to Management

    As stated before, most officers are great but for those who forget where they come from try to remember you are in it for God and the community, not for the title and the goodies that come with that title.
