    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance

    Cons

    No promotions to the Admin staff that do all the work!

    Advice to Management

    Hire the people that are hands on instead of seniority. With all the new changes going on, no I would not recommend to a friend!

    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 Management

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