Pros

Flexible with time off and benefits are great! A lot of room to learn and grow mentally and in your position but not compensated for it.

Cons

Management will tell you they will do one thing, but never actually follow thru. Communication is horrible, especially within accounting, and the director that is in charge is horrible and indecisive. It is a decent job for a year or so and if you are at the beginning of your career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees fairly and compensate and recognize them for their accomplishments.

    I worked at American Planning Association full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    35-hour work week. It was a check. Not much else good to say about it.

    Cons

    Low morale, not a good culture, lot of disgruntled employers, lack of guidance, no privacy, boring and uninspiring place to work.

  2. An experience where you learn about how a non profit works. No direction or organization within the company.

    Pros

    Enjoy working with my co workers and direct manager. The times are flexible overall with taking time off and if u have to leave early. Overall it's a casual environment.

    Cons

    Management expects you to do things that try have seen or done before. Even if it's not your job function they ask questions to the wrong people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To expect only of what can be done by management. And a key rule of thumb to lead by example which is necessary for any management position.
