Great mission, lack of experienced management and poor compensation

Community Director (Former Employee)

ProsThe mission, the volunteers and the lack of micromanaging.

ConsExtremely high turnover, low compensation, lack of recognition, favoritism that has nothing to do with performance and a serious lack of high profile and NEW national and corporate sponsors. Lack of consistent vision, employees and communication. Lack of important information from National being funneled into the chapters.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize your employees' hard work both verbally and financially. Pay them on par with other nonprofits in the area in order to get the best and brightest. Don't just hire kids for cheap because you can - you get what you pay for! Encourage innovation, increase retention and pay attention to your corporate culture, ED's! You should be in the office enough to know what is going on with the your staff, especially if your team is not making budget - again. Lastly, remember that if you want your fundraisers to increase their numbers and aggressively add new teams and sponsors, they need to be rewarded and incentivized accordingly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
