I have been working at Public Outreach full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Regular raises, opportunity to grow in the company, working with great people. The employees seemed happy and satisfied.

Cons

The public fund raising is grueling, and you are outdoors rain or shine. If you don't make your quota after a while, even due to person problems or illness, you might get fired. I spoke with two employee who told me that happened to them.

Advice to Management

There could be some improvements made with the training. Maybe people in the evaluation period should be given a little more time to shadow their supervisors. One of the employees in the eval period said he would like more training on closing the sale. I noticed that a few times I needed help with closing with good, potential monthly donor, the supervisor didn't see me flagging him or her. I was only there three days.

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

    Pros

    Awesome work atmosphere, supportive managers, hourly rate (not commission) which takes stress off of fluctuating weekly paychecks

    Cons

    You must hit targets consistently to keep your job. It can be draining by the end of the week, both physically and emotionally, but just have fun and life will be good!

    Advice to Management

    Be more liberal with performance bonuses. Hardly any were given out during my time at PO.
