- Coastal Women S Shelter, Inc.20.Jan 2016
There was no fairness or trust in this company.
Support from management
There was no leadership. The ED involved no one in the decision-making process.
There was supposed to be teamwork, but in reality there wasn't. You ended up doing it on your own and if there was a "team" project you still got the blame for it, even if you were not on that team!
Freedom to work independently
No, workload was never distributed fairly. I was expected to be Office Manager and Bookkeep for a Non-profit. Expected to be on top of 15-25 grants at any given time, yet keep the peace in an office full of 7 women, that didn't respect me or listen to me.
There were no successes for employees. Employees were more than likely written up for minor infractions.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Overall compensation for your work
Office / Work Environment
For the age of the building, no. Computers and software, no. Levels of ventilation, lighting and noise, basically no, with the exception of my office which was sound proof because it used to be a radio station.
N/A - this is a Non-Profit for Domestic Violence against Women Organization.
Jobs depend upon grant funding. If no funding is available there is no job. Not very stable
I did, but was never told or was it was never acknowledged.
Inclusive / Diverse
Suggestions for improvement
- Training, management over hall, Board Change and more training.
What I like about the company
I learned a lot about Grants, funding, what not to as an office manager and time management.
What I dislike about the company
Gossip, work-load, organizational duties, micro managing and support.
