    Pros

    United Way has a good mission in empowering people to participate in their families and community. The organization has targeted areas of service which gives it more focus than it had traditionally.

    Cons

    Like in many nonprofits, if you want to earn a big salary you shouldn't be working here. Nonprofits need to keep overhead low so donated funds go to services.
