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

Pros

Co-workers in other departments were amazing. Generous, polite, helpful and always willing to help out in any capacity.

Cons

Management refused to offer training to sub-ordinate but always faulted employee for not knowing particular programs to complete assignments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If a new employee is unhappy - actually listen and not sweep it under the carpet and blame them. A new person is a true reflection of the department.

    Budget to be able to pay staff appropriately for their work and what the resources they bring in to the organization.
