    Pros

    Work to solve current pressing environmental issues with a close-knit upbeat office.

    Cons

    The company is run by execs and supervisors who plot the whole workplace to their own advantage, although they may try to deny it. By giving themselves all the big spending high probability contributors, they guarrantee a high individual payoff at the end of the day and can easily make quota, while the entry to mid level workers are left to rummage through the unpleasant customers and be lucky to make quota once every two weeks. High turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Structure the company differently so everyone has a fair chance at being successful not just the execs who strategically give themselves all of the high caliber customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Program staff had to make a greater effort to disperse concrete information to the fundraising staff about details on how the program is doing. In order for fundraisers to stay on staff, the program managers must treat them as integral parts of the success of the organization. That means, Keeping fundraisers "in the loop".
