Pros

This position is great if you want to build your skills. It is not an easy job and not one for someone that wants 9-5, M-F. You will learn a lot about everything. There is a little travel (to great places) involved. You will build great relationships with fantastic people. Management is helpful and tries to coach you to succeed. Most people have a real passion for the mission.

Cons

Sometimes irregular/long hours. Technology issues. Pressure to meet specific goals.

Advice to Management

Acknowledge the hard work of the professional staff more. Even those that don't make their goals. We all work extremely hard.

    Pros

    Working to fulfill the mission and meeting some incredible families along the way. Establishing relationships with constituents and seeing how your day to day work positively impacts their life is the one inspiring thing about working for CCFA.

    Cons

    -There is little to no support when you start with CCFA. You will go through several routine conference calls to introduce databases, social media policies, mission, etc. However other than this, don't expect training or guidance from your superiors. Sink or swim.

    -Support from national staff and chapter staff is VERY limited. If you join CCFA expect to run a one-man show. This is not an environment that encourages team work or camaraderie. You will be responsible for a yielding a significant amount of revenue for the foundation with little to no support. If you do meet your budget goals, don't expect to be rewarded or even acknowledged for your accomplishment or hard work.

    -Investing in current staff (via professional growth opportunities, work-life balance, compensation, etc.) is not a priority.

    -Unfortunately there is an overwhelming sense of frustration among staff at CCFA due to lack of appreciation, resources, & support from national staff. This sentiment can be deflating and quite frankly, a shame. Typically one goes into the non-profit sector to make a positive mark on the world... don't expect to gain this from working for CCFA.

    Advice to Management

    If your employees to good to the organization, do good to those employees. Investing in staff can only lead to long term improvement, increased efficiency and success.

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of opportunities to grow professionally because you will have a lot of freedom to manage events so long as you are hitting fundraising goals

    Cons

    Lots of turnover. Not enough support from leadership.
