    Pros

    Nice hours, decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    When you see where your donations go it is very disheartening. So much money is used to pay for rich board members (taking them to nice restaurants, conferences, etc.). I also saw a huge disrespect for the poor, the people they supposedly want to help. The whole experience made me not want to donate to any non-profits ever again.


  2. Rewarding and enlightening making me want to do more to help seniors find employment.

    Pros

    Making a difference living united to help the 55+ market find employment. We have 75 on my project's payroll and six others have found permanent jobs with benefits! Also, this job has enhanced my administrative skills including advanced excel and QuickBooks.

    Cons

    The pay rate is so low, especially for my skill level and MBA in Accounting. I am paid through a federal government grant and the position is limited to four years, and I cannot have wages from another job at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Promote me, which is not in the budget and will not happen.
