    I worked at Chabad Lubavitch

    Pros

    You get to change the world while working independently yet with tremendous support. It's a big family that shares ideas. It combines the best of corporate structure, franchising and entrepeneurship. You can choose which age group to work with. You can choose which type of work to focus on. You can pick your tools and events from a wide range available. You meet some very inspiring people.

    Cons

    Don't expect financial security, but if you work hard you will have what you need. You'll be very high profile, and expect to learn how to deal with media and exposure quickly. Prepare for criticism of the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact more with all of your people, take the lead instead of following behind the people on the ground.

    I worked at Chabad Lubavitch

    Pros

    Chabad is a wonderful community to work in, depending heavily on which Rabbi you report to. My Chabad house was wonderful, the rabbi was friendly and accomidating, always willing to listen and very clear about what he expected from me.

    Cons

    There are some complications regarding religious rules and personal relationships because Chabad is a community organization, so office politics can certainly extend beyond the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront about your employees' responsibilities, as well as clear about whom they will be reporting to. Despite the obvious importance of acting in the role of a Rabbi as much as a boss, be clear about the boundaries involved.
