    I have been working at Community of Hope full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at Community of Hope since 2006, and the experience has been great. The organization provides really important services to homeless and low-income families. It's really great to go to work every day feeling like what you do will make a difference in your community.

    Professional advancement and pay have been amazing for me. The organization has grown over time, which creates opportunities for advancement. In 8 years, I have had 4 promotions with raises plus a raise every year based on my performance. The benefits are also good. They pay 100% of my health, dental, and vision insurance, and I get 4 weeks paid vacation and almost 2 weeks of paid sick leave every year.

    I really enjoy the people I work with. Leadership has consistently been approachable and they really listen. They are fair and care about employees, and there is a lot of transparency. The executive director knows everyone's names, even as the organization gets bigger.

    The work culture is good too. It's fun and positive. There are staff retreats twice a year, where you can meet other people in the organization, learn, relax, and hear about where the organization is headed and how it is performing overall. Staff also get to have a lot of input in the strategic planning process.

    Overall, working at Community of Hope has far exceeded my expectations.

    Cons

    As with many nonprofits, starting salaries aren't stellar. But, as I mentioned, everyone gets a raise every year, and there is a lot of room for advancement, so this makes up for the starting salary after a year or two.
