    Great place to volunteer

    Computer Lab Assistant (Current Employee)
    Tacoma, WA

    ProsGet to meet all different sorts of people (including a few you'd probably never encounter otherwise)
    Great place to hone your people skills
    Supportive and adaptable coworkers

    ConsNever enough resources to do a job properly. But that's part of being a non-profit, I guess.
    Rely heavily on volunteers for many programs, so getting paid to work there is going to be pretty tough

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus efforts on services people need, rather than what you can most easily offer.

    Pleasant place to work

    Retail Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    Falls Church, VA

    ProsGood will's mission, culture, time-off policies, benefits and the opportunity to advance to upper management. Decent place to work and the management is very professional.
