    Pros

    Generally pleasant experience with the folks at our chapter
    They are good at mobilizing community volunteers, which is always helpful in a nonprofit

    Cons

    Bureaucracy that dictates vast changes that often make no sense at the ground level
    Top-down corporate management style with little consultation with boots on the ground
    Promotion of people who play well with upper management rather than those who are most efficient at their jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult and listen to local leadership more. Despite your many years of experience as a corporate executive, these chapter leaders know more than you do about their community's demographics and the day-to-day realities in the field.

    Pros

    The ability to care and help for people in need due to natural disasters. Flexability was very helpful with going to school. Support from everyone as it was a family

    Cons

    The reorganization made it diffult as more responsibility was added to the daily job.
