Worst Non-Profit Company I EVER Worked For!
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 26, 2017
I was lied to by my supervisor who coerced me to accept a Managent position with double the workload for $2.00 more than subordinates. I only found out much later when I was no longer working for this company. The mission sounds great on paper but I've never been so dissapointed in any one company like I was with this one company. Morale was low, direction from leadership was scarce, employees feared retaliation if their vices were heard, thus they spoke ill of management behind closed doors, it was the most heartless department and organization I've ever worked for.
Pros
Christmas Target Card
Cons

Director (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CASeptember 26, 2016
Lots of change and focus was not always on the end user of the services. Decisions were tough to come by and leadership could never seem to decide a plausible direction for the future.
