    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Irish Wheelchair Association full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at this organisation or more like institution. The ground staff are nice and very good with the clients, without out them this organisation could not function.

    Cons

    Many and plenty. Staff are micro managed by management and there is no need for this. No matter how great a staff member does a job, there is no appreciation whatsoever. Staff are never supported or appreciated.
