Director, Volunteer Services Reviews

What is it like working as a Director, Volunteer Services?

Director, Volunteer Services in Los Angeles:
"Great Job But Terrible Workplace."
Pros: This job has the potential to be dynamic, fun, creative and most importantly, HELPFUL TO THE WORLD. The spirit of volunteering, the ability to be of service to others is a miracle. And it makes you happy. Unfortunately, the higher ups do not value that here and employees are treated horribly.
Cons: That my work is not recognized as anything at all. There is no value to my work. I am not valued as a person or an employee. All that is cared about is that I sit at my desk from 8:30 on the dot to 5:00 and not one second earlier.
