Depends upon your manager

Fundraising Director (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsIt's a great cause and a large not-for-profit with great training and good growth opportunities if you have good management. The reputation of the organization gives you great access to corporations and contacts within the community.

ConsLarge not-for-profit so can be very "corporate". Lots of turnover and some management is poor. Affiliate structure lends itself to same issues many nationa/affiliate organizations face -- difficulty in communication and cohesiveness. Disparities exist between geographic regions and size of offices regarding titles, compensation, training opportunities. As with many NFP's, revenue-generators make significantly more money than program delivery, and emphasis is placed on revenue generation without being able to provide programs and services to many donors.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at departments with large turnover and assess whether management of that department is to blame.
