Great Mission - but due to the financial stress, there's no investment on human capital.

Pros

Great flexibility, allow teleworking, open communication between staff and upper management, and most employees are committed to the mission of the organization.

Cons

No career development. No promotion based on merit. Sometimes too much politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. Not only VPs but people who are in contact with donors and the chapters.

    Pros

    Great mission and worthy cause. The work is important saftey net for communities.

    Cons

    The work is relentless. People are doing 2 or 3 different jobs. Donations are down and the employees pay for the lack of revenue in terms of low pay and increased responsibilities. Days are super long, plus you are on call all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize the entire network under one CEO. Chapter CEOs rule like kings and queens. They foster dedication, not to the mission or the organization but to themselves. They promote based on loyality and friendships rather than performance. The ARC needs a change agent. The organization is run like it's 1965. Technology is poor. Managers have low or no skills, and education is lacking.

    Growth doesn't come easy. Some people get promoted faster then others whether they're qualified or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees about what their vision is as far as working here.
