Great clients / Extremely inadequate management / supervisor
Therapist (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – January 8, 2018
They do provide ample good clients to meet your required caseload. However there is NO job security resulting from extremely inadequate management and supervisors. Catholic Charities say that their mission is to help those in need, yet they will pull the rug right from under an employee without any regard for the clients well being.
No job security
Extremely POOR communication from management / supervisor

the management side of it is awful , need to hire a management company, property management is black and white with them its definitely Tie-Dye. So many work relationship that stick together and if you against them they will do whatever to get you out. definitely dont follow fair housing as its who you know , see lawsuits coming soon between fair housing and them stealing from the old people.
This company seems to always make "best place to work"which is baffling. They have the absolute worst communication and when they realize there's a problem you have to work over to make up for management's poor leadership. I get paid for 37.5 hrs, but I actually work 40+. Its great to help people but it would also be nice to be able to live comfortably after a stressful work week. This company is only worth working for to gain experience and then leave for a company that will actually appreciate you.
low pay, unappreciated, overworked, high expectations

The management team had a good heart by expressing their concerns for the homeless. I learned that without a plan to work holistically with the client and to provide a clear path to recovery it would set the participant up for failure.

A place where your creativity is welcomed; daily relationship building between children, families and co-workers; opportunities for personal growth; a plethora of educational opportunities; partnership engagement; community fun; a very well diverse program. A great place to work.
You work at Catholic Charities for the Mission of helping others in Need not for a career path or for the pay. Pay is below average. Turnover rate is exceptionally high. As much as 75% per year in both Human Resources and Information Technology departments. The result causes the remaining workers to worry about their job security. Management is insulated from the actual people that are being serviced so their decisions are made in a vacuum. As a result, the decisions are not in the best interest of the organization and the people that are being serviced. Management can best be described as micro-managers who value efficiency over effectiveness and policy & procedures over resolving issues. The hardest part of the job is dealing with management.
The Mission - Helping Marylanders in Need
Failure for Management to Recognize that Employees want a Proper Work Life Balance
