Pros

Dynamic and meaningful work
Coworkers who care about each other and community
Opportunity for personal development

Cons

Uneven quality to staff in terms of competence
Management on conservative, risk adverse side
Not enough diversity in staff

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the tough decision on poor staff so others don't burnout. Pay entry level staff a bit more to get better people. Diversify board, staff and organization, community will benefit from different ideas, approaches and styles. The work demands it
