Management Lacked Empathy
Former program assistant (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 17, 2018
Management never genuinely showed empathy towards staff and their concerns. Managements only concern was ensuring that the homeless women were appeased.
Pros
helping those few homeless women that truly wanted to help themselves to become self reliant again.
Cons
To much back stabbing amongst the staff

Needs more organization
Elder Assistant (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDFebruary 11, 2018
Love the environment. The family's and residents are quite nice ppl, some csn be hard but not all the time. My manager (household coordinator) is on top of her game! Very well organized and plays no games when it’s time to take care of business. Ie: family concerns, employee problems or being a listening ear! She knows her job and does it well! My coworkers are supportive and team players! Sunshine lane is the best house hold to work on‼️
Pros
Fun work environment.
Cons
Raises are very few, u pay for lunch where there is plenty to give employees

Great clients / Extremely inadequate management / supervisor
Therapist (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 8, 2018
They do provide ample good clients to meet your required caseload. However there is NO job security resulting from extremely inadequate management and supervisors. Catholic Charities say that their mission is to help those in need, yet they will pull the rug right from under an employee without any regard for the clients well being.
Pros
No job security
Cons
Extremely POOR communication from management / supervisor

its not what you know ITS WHO YOU KNOW
Tax Credit Specialist (Former Employee) –  Basilica PlaceDecember 20, 2017
the management side of it is awful , need to hire a management company, property management is black and white with them its definitely Tie-Dye. So many work relationship that stick together and if you against them they will do whatever to get you out. definitely dont follow fair housing as its who you know , see lawsuits coming soon between fair housing and them stealing from the old people.
Pros
Can Retire in 15 Years
Cons
Cut Throat

Great place if you love helping others with low pay and no recognition
Property Manager (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDSeptember 27, 2017
This company seems to always make "best place to work"which is baffling. They have the absolute worst communication and when they realize there's a problem you have to work over to make up for management's poor leadership. I get paid for 37.5 hrs, but I actually work 40+. Its great to help people but it would also be nice to be able to live comfortably after a stressful work week. This company is only worth working for to gain experience and then leave for a company that will actually appreciate you.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
low pay, unappreciated, overworked, high expectations

Easy job
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 5, 2017
The work culture can be described as laid back but only because standards are quite low on projects. Most people who stay are comfortable but anyone with ambition selects out of this organization

Good heart.
Program Director of Dozier House (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNNovember 17, 2016
The management team had a good heart by expressing their concerns for the homeless. I learned that without a plan to work holistically with the client and to provide a clear path to recovery it would set the participant up for failure.

Great Mission - Poor Management and Execution
HR Specialist (Former Employee) –  Timonium, MDApril 29, 2016
You work at Catholic Charities for the Mission of helping others in Need not for a career path or for the pay. Pay is below average. Turnover rate is exceptionally high. As much as 75% per year in both Human Resources and Information Technology departments. The result causes the remaining workers to worry about their job security.
Management is insulated from the actual people that are being serviced so their decisions are made in a vacuum. As a result, the decisions are not in the best interest of the organization and the people that are being serviced.
Management can best be described as micro-managers who value efficiency over effectiveness and policy & procedures over resolving issues. The hardest part of the job is dealing with management.
Pros
The Mission - Helping Marylanders in Need
Cons
Failure for Management to Recognize that Employees want a Proper Work Life Balance
