    Pros

    Brand recognition, donors support this organization simply for it's name.

    Cons

    The organization gets in the way of itself, making progress nearly impossible. Bureaucracy at it's finest, with so many policies, procedures and rules in place that one can not do their job and donor dollars are wasted. Corporate Center departments have an exaggerated view of their value and frequently give responses to flex their muscle while having a negative impact on fundraising.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Downsize Corporate Center departments, break down the bureaucracy that slows down efficacy. Focus on building a company culture that unites your workforce.
