Company Culture

Mean girls club culture prevents talented staff of both sexes for advancing. Poor vetting process used by C-Suite has disastrous results on organization.

Support from management

The supportive managers don't last too long in the mean-girl environment.

Teamwork

They know how to work together to raise funds. It's not done joyfully, however.

Internal Communication

Internal communication processes are in place. The malicious content of the messages communicated is the problem: lying to your face, bearing false witness, rudeness, indifference.

Gender Equality

Mostly females working at UW.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Unwanted.

Career Development

It's up to you to learn what you can, there's no company training offered for anything, and no company support for employee education.

Overall compensation for your work

Below average, except for the 6-figure top positions. They use "non-profit" as an excuse.

Office / Work Environment

Drama, & plenty of it.

Environmental Friendliness

Get mean, & you'll fit right in.

Work-Life Balance

Four-day work weeks were allowed for part of the year.

Company Image

It's a United Way, so it's respected even if most people don't really know what UWs do.

Job Security

Forget about it.

Handicapped Accessibility

Up to code.

Workplace Safety

Up to code.

Inclusive / Diverse

Non-white faces don't stay very long.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Raise compensation for the rank and file to competitive level. Learn how to properly vet managers. Support training & ongoing education of staff.

What I like about the company

Helping community members in need.

What I dislike about the company

No willingness to coach & train staff to work together in a harmonious fashion. Mean-spirited clique has undue power.
