    I worked at National Urban League

    Pros

    You will be directly addressing some of the most important issues around race and poverty in Madison. If you aren't successful it will have a direct community impact - the work matters.

    Cons

    ULGM has a history of inconsistency and poor management decisions. It is also way too dependent on grants. That means it has a tough time changing its program mix to address the most pressing community needs today. Finally, most salaries are in the bottom quartile compared to like sized organizations in the community. A lot these issues are driven by funding. Have not hired the strongest managers as CEOs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Easier said than done - but diversify your funding, next time you hire a CEO the board should look for talent with management and desire to work through systems instead of personalities.
