Josh Martin, a 41-year-old administrator at the Center Street Settlement House, a nonprofit social service with 70 employees and more than $6 million in assets, sat pensively at his desk located outside the executive suite. He thought to himself, “No, it can’t be. I can’t have been working here for 20 years. Where did the time go?”
Martin has spent his entire adult life working at the Center Street Settlement House. He began his career there immediately after graduating from college with a degree in economics and very slowly climbed the narrow administrative ladder from his initial position as the director of a government-funded project to his current position as the deputy agency administrator. In addition, for the past five years, he has been serving as the president of the agency’s for-profit construction company. He reports directly to Tom Saunders, the autocratic executive director of the agency.
Martin, a competent administrator, often gets things done through his participative leadership style. In the last few years, Martin’s job responsibilities have increased exponentially. He fills many informational, decisional, and interpersonal managerial roles for the agency. Six months ago, he was given the added responsibility of processing invoices for agency vendors and consultants, authority he shares with Saunders and the agency’s accountant.
Martin is rewarded handsomely for his role in the nonprofit agency. Last year, he earned $90,000, plus a liberal fringe benefits package that included an agency car, a pension plan, a medical health plan (including dental), a month’s vacation, 15 paid holidays, and unlimited sick time.
Although he has received an annual cost-of-living allowance(COLA), Martin has no written contractual agreement and essentially serves at the pleasure of Saunders.
Martin pays a high personal price for his attractive compensation package. He is on call, his beeper activated, 24 hours a day. Each Sunday morning, Martin attends a mandatory agency strategy meeting required of all agency managers.
