Learned a lot about the operational side of international development
Summer Intern (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDNovember 3, 2014
I learned a lot from colleagues and the summer conferences. It was really interesting to see the 'behind-the-scenes' HR tasks required to create a successful humanitarian aid organization like CRS. Everyone was very friendly and open to help. I was exposed to a great variety of projects and enjoyed the office

Great employees with a mediocre, timid, and visionless executive team
N/A (Current Employee), BaltimoreJanuary 15, 2014
Pros: decent health benefits
Cons: impossible work loads and inept managers
Most people keep their jobs by donating much time to the work. I effect the agency requires donated labor to function. The best jobs are overseas far from HQ. CRS important work and is exactly who you would want to respond to a disaster like an earthquake. Their is a high level of idealism and much of the work is top notch. But morale is low and getting worse.
CRS recently stopped its defined pension plan, effectively violating a promise made to employees at hiring.
Other benefits are good.

Excellent Work place where teamplaying is viable for the job's proformance
Office Services Assistant/Image Center Assistant (Former Employee), Baltimore, MDSeptember 1, 2013
Working for CRS meant I had the opportunity to be in the presence of a lot of God fearing people every day, These people where working hard to help people in need all around the country, they would come to work with a positive attitude to get the job done to make sure someone in a far away country have fresh water, a roof over there heads and food on there tables. I was a part of that working at CRS.

management lacks professionalism
Sr. Verification Specialist (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD 21201February 25, 2013
Pros: learning environment, helping less fortunate people.
Cons: micro management, unprofessional behaivor
a typical day at work is productive but would be more productive without so many unecessary interuptons.
I have learned a great deal about several different countries all around the world.
Most co-workers are hard working team players.
The hardest part of my job is dealing with unproffesional behavior.
The most enjoyable part of my job is proving out the months end accounting and contribution processes.
