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

    Pros

    Good team based atmosphere, Good mid/upper level management, Felt like you made a difference sometimes, The members were dedicated to making a difference

    Cons

    Some of the sponsors did not need help, Felt like cheap or free labor at points and sometimes were treated that way

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your workers like adults with an education. Be more selective with project choice.

    Former Employee - AmeriCorps VISTA in Des Moines, IA

    I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    $5,500 education award if you complete your 1-year term. Lots of non-profit experience.

    Cons

    Have to stay full year to get education award, risk with working for a federally funded program, can be treated like an inter, and very low pay. Can't work another job or have any outside income if working for VISTA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher pay and more flexibility.
