Pros

Social benefit you receive from working for a non-profit organization. Very large national non-profit that is very connected in many communities around the nation. For the most part the co-workers are cordial.

Cons

You work very long days and sometimes weekends for little pay and recognition. There is often a lack of leadership from the national office and you spend a lot of time streamlining processes that already should have been streamlined.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shift the focus from the bigger picture to the little things, like the happiness level of the staff and the corps.

    Cons

    The lack of information given to incoming corpsmembers was very frustrating and the support system for the health and well being, both mental and physical of the corps members was fairly unsastisfactory

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a standard mode of operations for as many situations as possible. Train program managers to focus on being a mentor and to pay attention to well being of corpsmembers

    Pros

    Although the stipend is low you will receive money towards your education at the end of your service. It is also very rewarding

    Cons

    The stipend is really low so you have to learn to budget well and the hours are extremely long so it seems like you do way more work for how much you are compensated.
