    Current Employee - Senior District Executive

    Pros

    Good job out of college because it will build your professional network to get your next job.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance and little opportunity for real growth since the profession has been shrinking by 2% every year since 1971. The organization is very political and the pay per hour just decreases every year as the reward for hard work is more work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Responsibilities need to be slimmed down for sustainability and real results.

    Pros

    Opportunity to impact the lives of youth.

    Cons

    Long Hours & Low Pay. It is expected you work 50 hours per week minimum with 60-80 hours common during recruiting season, fundraising season, or with special events. As they are a non profit they start all entry level managers at a low pay grade and keep you there for about three years,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more work life balance.
