so hostile and toxic. gossip runs rampant. most especially at executive level and in human resources.
Support from management
you are either completely ignored or openly criticized. I don't know which is worse
peers support each other whenever possible
Freedom to work independently
you are expected to do and know everything, eBen if it's not your area of strength. public speaking, marketing, grant writing, direct service, building repairs
not so often.
Attitude towards older colleagues
attitudes towards those 60 + impedes the growth of the agency. nobody else's thoughts are considered valid
Overall compensation for your work
low salaries and extraordinarily high expectations
no respect for time off. your supervisor will call you incessantly when you are home sick, on vacation. no regard for time off
smoke and mirrors. .....
you will never get fired. no matter how unqualified you are from your job
good opportunities to learn your job,
Inclusive / Diverse
not so much. except for in low level positions
