Excellent opportunity to work for those in need.
Volunteer And Event Manager (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CAJanuary 3, 2017
Catholic Charities of the East Bay was an excellent place to work; staff focused on helping and caring for those in need including the homeless, immigrants, those imprisoned, foster children and those with psychological issues. As a non-profit, the monies raised through grants and government programs is often not secure enough to insure steady employment or better wages. Typically, however, you are recognized for out-of-the-box thinking and entrepreneurship.
Pros
In the past benefits such a health care have been top of the line.
Cons
Job security was not always possible.

Seems to have lost sight on what they are suppose to be doing.
Site Coordinator for the VITA Program (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CANovember 26, 2015
With changes in management they were more interested in getting Accredited than helping the poor. Discontinuing most of their programs. I guess they were trying to start over.
Pros
My supervisor was the best. I really enjoyed working with her and for her. She taught me a lot
Cons
Upper management did not seem to care about what was going on with in the program, and making a lot of changes without benefitting the clients nor employees.
