Love the Company.... Not the state leadership
I thoroughly stand behind the mission of SAFY, but the leadership in Alabama, specifically the Executive Director sucks the joy and purpose out of this job. She has unreasonable expectations and sits on a pedestal that she feels entitles her to not have to get out and do the work. Instead, the leadership and staff are left to carry the weight of each other. And when her direct reports are drowning and asking for assistance or compensation for the extra work, she tells them to suck it up and do the job, while she goes home at 4pm every night and doesn't work on weekends.
Corporate knows the problems in Alabama, but, doesn't do anything about it. Staff are afraid to speak up about their concerns and problems with the ED because they know that she holds grudges and will eventually take it out on them.
She creates an environment that pits leaders against each other and creates drama. She uses fear and intimidation with staff. She does not genuinely care about the people that work for her, but cares only about the bottom line.
SAFY as a whole is a great organization and it's mission and values are things I fell in love with. At the end of the day, however, I could not continue to work under the ED of Alabama.
