I worked at AmeriCorps as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

They really try to foster a community feeling and offer a variety of experience. Get the opportunity to make valuable connections in the community.

Cons

Low pay, long hours. Expectations are very high and not commensurate with experience or compensation. Management also tends to play favorites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Guidance and feedback to ground-level employees needs to be reworked and strengthened.

    Monthly stipend sometimes just isn't enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More funding to increase monthly stipend.
    Possibly provide transportation reimbursement for those who qualify (reimburse for half of a monthly Metrocard).

    Provide more individual/specific training for each project.
