I worked at Operation Homefront

Pros

Great mission but in the last 10 years there have been so many military charities popping up locally and regionally giving a personal touch to their service, that Operation Homefront is falling behind in its services to help families.

Cons

Leadership consists of CEO who had no non-profit or CEO experience prior to taking the job and the organization and staff suffer for it. His senior staff is composed of cronies including even a married couple in senior positions, causing the ranks of employees to consider the CEO to be unethical and bias. He surrounds himself with 'yes men/women' who will not cross him instead of bright talented experienced non-profit executives who actually know how to run a non-profit. The ranks feel unsupportive and undervalued and have constant fear of watching over their shoulders to see what possible misstep is going to cause them to be fired. The work in fear rather than inspiration. Organization chart is constantly changing and the hire/fire causes a revolving door that's hard to keep up with. They interview with a chart to check-off rather than really discussing the job with the applicant and seeing if its a match that will work within the organization so it can move forward and the applicant can thrive in the job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to the board - clean house of the executive management and bring in a proven nonprofit CEO and team that knows how to run an organization and manage a team of professionals; or merge Operation Homefront into Wounded Warriors and save money in order to help more military families.

    Pros

    They do great work serving military families. A great place to work! They are building a better HR department and doing a better job orienting and communicating with employees. They are continually expanding their benefits to better meet the needs of their families.

    Cons

    They grew too fast and had some HR things to catch up on but that has greatly improved since the strategic plan was put in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to add structure to the organization including the chapters.

    I worked at Operation Homefront

    Pros

    Decent pay. Casual work enviroment.

    Cons

    Wow. If you see these folks you need to run away. It may look like good money but you will be worked at least 60+ a week .The management will want timely responses to their ridiculous questions on Sat Sun Evenings etc. You will not be performing tasks on your job description. You will be doing many jobs that have nothing to do with your title. These people use and use and then throw away. They have a very very high turn over for a reason. Beware folks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign! It would be the most professional and honest thing you could do.
