    I worked at United Way

    Pros

    Community action, genuine desire to serve local community, stays consistent with mission and vision, transparent financials. Fiscally conservative and good local resource.

    Cons

    Very high turn-over. Poor employee engagement. Lack of trust within the organization, especially between employees and upper management. Poor job/career role expectations - almost deceptive, very unclear as to what you should be doing or what you were hired for or when/how role may/may not have changed with very little useful feedback or communication. Poorly run.

    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.
