    I worked at Salvation Army full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    New workplaces that make some corporates look poor.

    Cons

    Their whole MO is a con. No one with any integrity can work in a place where money is used to fund daily lunches, dinners, air travel, lavish retirement housing and property expenses. TSA manage to hide money all over the place to avoid reporting where the money really goes. (Do an ABN search on TSA ) The culture is the worst I have ever experienced with men openly dominating women and lying to maintain their high paid jobs or egos.
