    Pros

    Looks good on your resume.

    Company does not value staff. Does not invest in staff. No professional development. Stressful environment. Highly silo-ed; much uncertainty. Out-of-touch with donors.

    I worked at United Way full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cons

    Direction from leadership very unclear, turnover is atrocious. little/no training. No talent development, very little opportunity for advancement. 9 CEO's in the last 27 years.
