    Pros

    Your doing work that helps others in need.

    Cons

    Each affiliate is only as good as its Board of Directors. Some B.O.D. members serve only to line their resumes and could really care less about the "mission".

    Advice to Management

    Management should play a more active role in understanding how the B.O.D manages each affiliate. The fact that each affiliate is run autonomously means a bad or corrupt B.O.D. can not only distract from the mission, but in some cases actually break the law. A good and active B.O.D. however can really have a positive impact on the employees, mission and community. It really is a crap shoot.

    Scattered workplace but truly feeling like you've made a difference

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Our office space was cramped which in turn allowed for great camaraderie between coworkers. Attending open houses and spending time with the families who were moving in, really solidified the impact you were making.

    Cons

    Management was scattered which lead to much miscommunication and frustration. The space we were using as an office was small and cramped, the computers and equipment outdated.
