Pros

Everyone is dedicated to the mission of providing decent, sustainable, and affordable housing to low income first time homebuyers. President/CEO Erin Rank is as hard working and dedicated as any I have ever worked for. Very inspirational, as well as friendly to all.

Cons

Extremely heavy workload, requiring extended hours, although the time does fly by.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As you'd expect, it's a wonderful mission. And the people who work there usually have the same motivations: To help.

    Cons

    Since it's a non-profit, the pay is less than industry standard, the work can be demanding at times. Must be willing to have the mission take precedence to counter the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is in the difficult position of balancing growth while increasing support and resources. It's a delicate ebb and flow and as such, there can sometimes be inconsistencies in direction.
