I have worked here 3 years, and haven't ever worked at a place with more heart and soul. This environment isn't going to be the best fit for everyone, it is hard for various reason. The work load is heavy. For those who it is an natural fit, the evidence is in their work ethic. They are the heart and soul of this place. I am still so impressed with all my coworkers, from all departments. It is a non-profit, so the pay isn't what you can get at some private sector jobs. That comes with the non-profit territory, and it is important that people are aware of that. That being said, the center clearly does it's best to recognize employees and their good work. They have monthly "cause for applause" recognition, yearly "value awards". They choose an office each month, all over the county, and surprise them with lunches, breakfast, etc. They have company picnics, Christmas parties, they really try. There are incentives to stay active, they have a "Live for Life" program that offers free wellness classes including Zumba and Ukulele lessons.
I read someone else say that the center asks people to get on here and write positive reviews. I want to make it clear, I have never been asked to write a review for this company. I don't make enough money to just write a positive review because San Diego Center for Children has asked me to. I am not sure where anyone would get that from.
Work incentives, free wellness classes
Heavy work load, can be stressful
