      A good feel type of environment. Everyone is super nice. Everyone is heavily involved with the community and the work we push forward to help others. Work/Life balance is good, good benefits, good vibes.


      Since it's a non-profit, pay might be below average.

        Hybrid work environment There are some passionate, caring people who work at UW that have dedicated years to giving back to the community.


        Low pay with NO professional growth opportunities. Don't expect a raise or title adjustment when they reward you with more responsibilities for doing your job well. Poor upper management/leadership. It's everyman for themselves and leadership wants the praise for your work. Expect to be spoken down to, treated as less than, and replaceable. HR will not so much as lift a finger if you voice any concerns and it's been that way for 12+ years. They refuse to reprimand or even confront bad employee behavior. They keep the bad eggs and wonder why they have a high turnover. Expect to pay for parking and walk a ways to the office in an unsafe part of downtown.
