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

Pros

Casual work environment, good if you can get along with the people there, but they are all more or less welcoming. Younger demographic, mostly liberal arts students who don't have many other choices for a decent jobs. Its flipping burgers or this, but only if you can survive and sell.

Cons

You are essentially selling child sponsorships.
Half the things you are taught about the charities aren't necessarily true, and you will have to live with the guilt of guilt tripping honest people into surrendering their credit cards to sponsor a child.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    Pros

    Astonishingly supportive company with a great culture of allowing innovation by employees. Many leadership opportunities. Benefits plan after relatively short wait. Travel opportunities. Bursaries.

    Cons

    Public Outreach does not pay high salaries, and their termination process needs fixing. Can be hard for some to maintain the required level of performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.
