Pros

Working for a worthy cause, helping people to build homes

Lack of autonomy. Working relationships can be approved between all departments and with the volunteers.
Office culture can be improved as well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire people and allow them to do their job without too much interference from upper management

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
