    Pros

    The program was extremely organized and the staff was so nice and helpful.

    I don't have many cons except it is probably better to work there as full time staff so you have more responsibility

    And I thought Working for the Gov't was a Bureaucratic Mess...

    I have been working at American Jewish Committee full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers who are incredibly dedicated, knowledgable, and supportive. Employees don't work on any Jewish holidays. Donors (aka Lay Leaders) get to feel as if they are involved in AJC's advocacy - not just making a donation - because they are given leadership positions within the organization.

    Cons

    Regional offices are not well-staffed. Salaries are low, especially when considering the number of evenings and weekends employees typically work. Lay Leaders (i.e. donors to whom we give volunteer positions within the organization) often wield excessive influence. Relationship between Lay Leaders and staff can often be strained and awkward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your staff swiftly and effectively. Support staff members, and value them more than you value donors. Care less about appearance and more about actual advocacy.

    Pros

    The mission of the organization was well established and employees were dedicated to it. Teamwork was good at times and lacking at other times.

    The expectations were not always reasonable and pressure was put on employees when not necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should take some leadership training classes.
