Pros

Volunteers tend to be all hyped up and super eager to build, you have to put the brakes on them or your job site will spin out of control. Had a great time teaching people, everybody was terrific to work with at the site.

Cons

The management is great at raising money, getting volunteers and trying to help you. However, they don't know alot about construction and can make you a little crazy at times.

Advice to Management

Don't get hung up on how long the building process takes, your working with rank amatuers for the most part. Also, however bad you think the house is that you bought to rehab, well it's really six times worse. Trust your project managers more, they have a clue about what they are doing.

    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 Management

    Better pay for non-director employees


  2. Large nonprofit that feels very much like working at a large company

    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
