First Week

Community Organizer (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

Prosthe people i work with are really nice.

ConsTCE is one of those faux positive work environments where all the niceness, and the light hearted games seem scripted. The work itself is not bad, but your pay is directly linked to your fundraising. The campaign only seems to care about making sure we bring in enough money. Further, their methods seem counter productive. We are out knocking on doors well after dark trying to garner support money. most people won't open the door for us. Further, none of your talent or sills are taken into consideration. I have a graduate degree pending in the social sciences. I am hoping to work my way up into an analyst position. But it seems like i have been pigeon holed as a canvasser. at best this job is a band aid, not a career, unless you want to be a door to door salesman.

Advice to Senior Managementread the resumes that people are bringing to you. You probably have a lot of talent that has left your organization because they were over qualified for the position you were offering them. Allow people who have proven skills in areas you use to move in that direction. Stop verbally abusing those members of the staff that do not meet arbitrary goals set by the umbrella organization. a post shift rap every time you miss goal is unnecessary and it kills moral.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
