    Pros

    Great mission and volunteers. Satisfaction helping people

    Cons

    Poor management, low morale due to several years of change, cost cutting (layoffs). Change and restructuring is a constant. In last 3 years, this is the 3rd restructure. Morale is as low in both hq and the field. Right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Equalize pay, stabilize, increase team building in the field
