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

Pros

Good substantive work and meaningful impact on the conduct of the charity's work. Great work-life balance with okay opportunities for advancement

Cons

Company struggles with its religious identity which can get in the way of some of the things it's doing - it's heavily branded as christian and that closes as many doors as it opens internationally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more frequently and clearly with your employees.

    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
