The Red Cross operates according to rigid hierarchy. It's a very middle class culture & many employees aspire to higher positions in the organization so there's lots of competition. There is little to no transparency on the part of management. Nobody can speak honestly about internal problems. Donors must be protected at all costs from hearing about internal issues. The pay is ok, the work is meaningful but they really work their people too hard & provide little to no training.
You get to meet lots of wonderful volunteers.
Toxic internal culture. Old school patriarchal style management. No transparency.
During my work experience at this Red Cross location during a stressful time in the City of Calgary, the gossip, administrative dysfunction, lack of nonbiased and cultural insensitivity were extensive. Lack of compassion and empathy was incredible. It was such a shock as the Red Cross has an international reputation of a humanitarian organization. That they demonstrate and embrace value-based leadership- regrettably, the Calgary location does not.
Some of the staff and many of the clients
Disfunctional leadership and their promotion and validation of gossip
