I worked at Big Brothers Big Sisters of America full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I liked working there - the people were great and management laughed a lot and told funny stories. We moved to a new building that was really nice. All the furniture was new and we all got new computers. I had good health care, lots of sick days, flex time, holidays, fun team-building activities, and a lot of free lunches. It was a good place to work.

Cons

The pay was low, but I knew that when I was hired so it was not unexpected. I was just happy to have a job since a lot of my friends weren't even working, or weren't working in their field.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better temperature control in the office. A lot of days, I wore a sweater.

    Pros

    Nice people, fun work environment

    Cons

    No real downside though it's important for you to be comfortable with their work pace, which is on the slower side because its a grassroots organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff. Allow staff to give feedback about their supervisors. PM's to give feedback about VPP to CEO or to the Board without fear of retaliation or termination. Care about how the staff feel. Promote from within. Keep staff that do well with the kids and volunteers. Train leadership on how to communicate effectively with their team. Think things through before you make and announce a change within the agency so you don't have to retract the change as soon as you announce it.b
