Personal time beware

Community Manager (Current Employee)

ProsGreat mission, good people wanting to do the right thing, events and activities are inspiring. If you like it and are willing to move or travel a lot for business there is room for advancement. Your experience will differ greatly based on the type of vp and managers you have.

ConsYou spend around 50 hours a week working. There r unrealistic goals and if you get an area that is widespread geographically you might as well kiss your free time goodbye. Working with volunteers can be a rewarding experience but remember that this is just an ancillary project for them.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to control every aspect. Community managers are able to make intelligent decisions. Goals are important but make the event fun and the money will come

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
