Tough environment, some caused by the external conditions
VP Operations (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 5, 2015
The financial situation is shaky, and the current leaders have little idea of how to solve this situation. On the other hand, the work that is being done in the field is lead by top professionals whose care, concern, and quality of response is top drawer.
Pros
Incredible mission
Cons
Confusion and lack of strong leadership

Great Balance
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  El Centro, CANovember 17, 2014
I had a wonderful 7 years working for this employer. I felt like my work meant something and helped many. On a typical day I would work in a locked secured facility run by the Department of Homeland Security. I worked with detainees and refugees from other countries in order to provide them with all of their religious and spiritual needs. This was very satisfying work. Detainees were very grateful for all I did for them. I started a detainee library so that they had access to reading materials in their language and faith. I mainly worked with ICE officers and administrators.
Pros
hours, flexibility of schedule, meals were $1.25 inside the facility
Cons
not an excellent retirement plan, medical insurance changes

Refugee and Resettlment agency serving with diligence
Intern (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCJanuary 20, 2015
The agency is constantly busy with clients. They assist with everything from pre to post arrival, furnishing apartments, and establishing a plan to become self efficient. The amount of paper work can be gruesome but the smile on your clients face makes everything worth it.

Not a fun environment; you do what you are supposed to do and go home.
Case Worker (Current Employee) –  FloridaAugust 12, 2012
Multicultural envronment but since they are non profit the grants come and go and job stability depends on whether they are renewed or not; opportunities for advancement are almost non existant, however, they have great benefit package such as retirement, pay time off, sick days, and health insurance what keeps workers around because they barely and rarely raise salaries.
Pros
45mn lunch breaks as certain places allow only 30mn
Cons
almost no opportunity for advancement unless you apply for or transfer to another position
