      Pros

      Huge international organization that participates in a wide variety of charity work. Plenty of opportunities to find fulfilling work helping people who really need it most. Strong brand recognition. Good benefits for full-time workers.

      Cons

      Pay for project-based employees is typically the bare minimum. It is difficult to get promoted within the company due to the temporary nature of projects & government funding. Project objectives and goals are often poorly defined or not within the scope of work for Salvation Army, and instead are controlled by other organizations. Employees are often asked to sign documents stating their work will align with Christian morality and that they will not do anything to refute any aspect of Christian teachings.
