Great Cause, Great Fun, Poor Executive Decisions
refuse to disclose (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 10, 2015
If you are mission-oriented, you'll love seeing your efforts help lift up a troubled teen. There is no greater reward than watching the evolution of a teen who had given up hope begin to believe in him/herself again. Whether you work directly or indirectly with the teens, you can find ways to get involved in their lives and make a difference.
But be warned... you will be frustrated almost daily with the decisions that come from the top-down which interfere with your ability to do your job in an effective and meaningful way.
The culture has been changing rapidly since 2013. The staff still enjoy each other, but there is a low grumble of the overworked and under-appreciated. There has been a lot of turnover in 2015, actually, there's been a lot of turnover for the past two years, and no department is left unscathed. While a few people have been with the company for about three to five years, it seems like 18 months may be the new standard. This is a not a place to grow, it is a place to gain experience and take that experience to a more stable environment where you have more support.
