    I have been working at Turning Point (North Carolina) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team of dedicated people. We make a difference in our community and we do it willingly.
    We have fun when the opportunity arises and everyone actually gets along.
    Management is either on site or a text message away,
    i enjoy going to work everyday.

    Cons

    Non-profit - never enough money to do all that needs to be done, Salaries are about1/3 of what someone would be paid in the private sector.
    Always running on a shoestring can be stressful

    Advice to Management

    Awesome management team. Keep doing what you are doing.


  2. "Our great successes in caring for victims of domestic violence were often undermined by the incompetence of the E.D."

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Turning Point (North Carolina) full-time

    Pros

    Serving a just cause; helping victims of abuse find hope; giving the children of victims some light in their dark world.

    Cons

    The executive director is an administrator who only enjoys juggling numbers. Having no heart for the clients, an ineffective staff leader.

    Advice to Management

    Make the current exec director an asst. director where she can crunch numbers and set staff schedules. Find an exec. director who really understands and cares for the victims. That should be the motivation that guide the efforts of a leader, truly grasping the mission.
