    Pros

    Mission focused, strong network throughout the country, volunteer culture, unique opportunities to serve communities in need, at the top of NGOs working in disaster relief and getting stronger at identifying and utilizing new technology (social media, virtual disaster deployments)

    Cons

    Stress between service delivery and revenue (doing more with less), work/life balance is hard to manage in a response organization and there is an expectation to be available by email 24/7

    Hectic schedule. We are expected to be flexible but we can't expect the same from management.

    Pros

    Company is doing great things in the world, and saving lives by teaching people first aid, CPR, and earthquake preparedness.

    Cons

    Co-workers aren't the friendliest folk, and they seem tired most of the time. There are cliques and some workers exclude others.
    You are also overworked and underpaid, but that's most non-profits.

    Advice to Management

    Give more respect to your workers, and don't yell at certain individuals in front of everyone.
    Just because you are a manager and you have AmericCorps workers working in your team, that does not give you the right to mistreat and verbally abuse them.
