    Pros

    Who doesn't like the idea of helping poor kids. Its what the world should be about. You meet cool people too.

    Cons

    They hire a bunch of kids right out of college who can't find jobs. You go to bars every night after working a long day and getting so drunk I don't even know how I made it to work the next day. There was an incident last year where we were all kicked out of club in midtown and some of us were underage. A girl I was working with told me she's sleeping with one of the head team leaders and that's how she got promoted. This happens alot with younger female workers which would go against most company ethics policies.(FYI-I'm not going to name any names but just ask around.)

    Pros

    DialogueDirect is a bridge for a true NGO (Children International) that promotes the well-being and development of children both domestically and internationally through one-on-one sponsorship. The staff within the organization is diverse, fun, and initially very supportive. Working in DC is an excellent opportunity that is very great for networking and getting a better idea of other opportunities within the non-profit world.

    Cons

    Minimum wage acts as the base pay ($8.25/hr) which is very misleading given the job description on every website the position is advertised on indicates $35k will be your base pay and commission follows on top of that. Minimum wage is later deducted from your bonuses (the ones that successfully debited three weeks later) making getting donors a challenging if not an unsatisfying accomplishment. Travel via the DC metro is a requirement for this job if you intend on getting from one site to another in order to canvas. This should qualify as a travel expense covered by the company but they inform you, after 90 days, your travel expense will be debited from your pre-taxed earnings and given to you in the form of a debit card to be used solely for transportation--as if this is doing you a favor! Also, if a dialoguer does not sign anyone up for three days consecutively, they are fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the passive aggressive management style. Inform your team leaders that not everyone can be like them in a matter of a few weeks. Also, be more direct with the pay cycle and expectations--don't throw this out during the last five minutes of your weekly orientations.
