      Pros

      Competitive pay and benefits. Rewarding opportunity to make a difference in the community. Dedicated staff and respectful environment.

      Cons

      I can’t think of anything negative. Taking care of children and mothers is rewarding but can also be stressful.

      Pros

      It's easy to connect with the mission and the people who genuinely care about what we do and why. People are excited to come here because of the brand and meaning of the work.

      Cons

      I've never felt more undervalued by an organization. The constant tension between pay that qualified as moderately low income and political rivalry that blocked innovative improvement work was demoralizing. The range of bullying and narcissistic behavior is rampant, although there are some pockets of the organization where this is less common. It would be hard for someone to know the full reality of their department through the interview process. This is why I'd recommend having other options and leaving quickly unless you have a high tolerance for adversity at work. Working your way up is unlikely unless you come into the organization with a leadership position. Work volumes are high for everyone and people are expected to shoulder the work of two or three people.
