Don't expect much career advancement or pay increases—merely a stepping stone for some.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Fort Worth, TX

ProsMy particular position was in the main office, however, my job duties often included helping with outdoor events. Many of my co-workers were nice as well.

ConsBeing a non-profit company, there weren't many (if any) pay increases. The work load was fairly heavy at times, without much positive feedback for a job well done. I felt more like a drone, so I bided my time until I found a new job. Expect to work on weekends here and there for events.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your employees more instead of just expecting them to crank out the work. Perks, even small ones, will go a long way for morale. Too many meetings!
