I worked at Public Outreach full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

PO represents a number of awesome charities. Fundraisers work door-to-door, street or mall depending on the campaign. Coworkers are typically young, energetic, enthusiastic, idealistic and fun. It's good ground floor training for any sort of sales and if you stick at it, you will become very comfortable talking to all sorts of people. And that's a good thing.

Cons

It's very challenging to meet weekly "sales" quotas. Random one-time donations are not the point, what PO and their clients want are ongoing monthly donations and you have to sign up a certain amount per week.
