A lot a canvassing, which isn't fun, but pay and benefits are good.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at USA for Unhcr full-time

ProsFun team to work with, supportive and have sense of humor. The pay is better than what most fundraising organizations give and the new management at the DC office was particularly caring of employees.

ConsFundraising in harsh conditions such as staying outside in freezing cold and scorching heat for 6 hours a day (except for a lunch and other shorter breaks). Strict quotas, the main thing employees complained about was lack of job security, the stress motivated people to always be looking for other jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe make it more commission based, instead of tight quotas, to prevent losses and too much stress for employees. Worrying about losing team leader position or the job entirely makes it hard to be upbeat and positive while fundraising.
