    Pros

    You are able to feel good about the end result of what you are working hard to do, and put a face to what you are doing. Interaction with families and volunteers is great, and your direct coworkers are generally pretty great. There are often fun events to get involved with and you get to have a presence in the community.

    Cons

    Highly political- once favorites are made, there is no changing them. Upper management has fierce demands, yet no advice, training or feedback to help employees develop those skills. Copious amounts of paperwork, micro managing, petty management, HR nightmare, no growth/development opportunities, low pay for a demanding job. Very antiquated and outdated views on business, marketing, development and sponsor interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage employees to grow and develop on a professional and personal level. Aim to attract and retain employees- not just turn and burn them. Offer praise and kudos where applicable. Do not play favorites so obviously- especially when allowing said favorites to not pull their weight.
