I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great people who care about the mission. I consider them friends as well as coworkers. You really do feel like you're doing good in the world when you put in a full day's work.

Cons

Pretty bad dysfunction. Skeptical of technology and change. Cultural split between Atlanta and Americus headquarters is a real problem

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shift headquarters to Atlanta. Embrace change and new technology.

    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great organization to work for. Since we built multiple houses a year there were always lots of different events going on. No two days were the same. Liked that it is a Christian based organization. Small staff, more like a family.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great, but that is typical among non-profits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay for non-director employees

    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere
    Religious at its core, but won't offend those who aren't zealous Christians
    Opportunities to transition into different roles over career

    Cons

    "Silo effect" seems to sometimes stiffle good ideas being picked up from one department to another
    Leadership tends to favor known entities versus bringing in fresh perspectives from outside of the network
