ProsGreat 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.

ConsLeadership 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 Senior ManagementAdvice 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.

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