Pros

The paycheck cashes and you can check out at 5pm.

Cons

Terrible management with little training for them to improve. Confusing reporting structure and divisive relationship between chapters and national. Internal comepetition destroys the morale and disassociates employees from mission work.

Advice to Management

Walk the talk. get the right people in the right jobs and stop putting underperformers and problem employees who lack experience in management positions. Break down the silos and get people communicating and sharing knowledge with one another. Stop being puppets of your local board members and BOG. Quit doing the same things over and over expecting different results. That is insanity. Gail McGovern: quit cancelling your town halls with the chapters. 90% of the fortune 500 CEO's in America are better at visibility, ngagement, and accessibility and their businesses are much larger, more global, and more demanding. Your immediate staff sends the message internally that you are scary and should be feared.

    Pros

    humanitarian mission and purpose, helping people in need and/or supporting those that do. Feeling a sense of pride that you are involved with an organization that does good for humanity

    Cons

    ARC is good at hiring talented and knowledgeable people but then they do not listen to or value their input at a professional level

    Advice to Management

    takes the shackles of staff and let them do the jobs they are hired to do. Stop the silos and kingdom building and work as one organization not little kingdoms inside an organization.
