Disappointment from day 1

Former Employee - Income Development Representative  in  Chicago, IL
Former Employee - Income Development Representative in Chicago, IL

Pros

Working with a variety of volunteers, helping people and working from home when needed.

Cons

Crazy long hours, very little work/life balance, poor leadership, no opportunity for advancement. No training in position. Did I mention poor leadership? Making someone a Regional Director with 0 experience is STUPID.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't base performance strictly on how much money is raised by staff. There is more to than just numbers.

    Pros

    Work with passionate volunteers that helped you work the long hours. Generous PTO and benefit program.

    Cons

    They are going through a transformation and it is a lot of disorganization and down sizing. It is going to take a while before they can right the ship. A lot of night and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less phone conferences, let your employees get out in the field. Remember the mission.
