I worked at United Way full-time for more than a year

Pros

Many colleagues were truly passionate about helping their communities, and were caring and devoted to their work. I met people I am proud to have as lifelong friends.

Cons

I believe the experience comes down to the Senior Management of the local United Way where one is employed. The head of UW where I worked had no idea how to treat, motivate or respect employees. Also, new initiaitves were constantly being started with no regard as to the resources available to make those initiatives successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at the turnover rate. Most employees leave jobs because of trouble with their bosses. I left the organization just a few years ago and there are only a handful of people left that I worked with. Turnover is costly to morale and to achieving objectives but the head in our organization did not seem to recognize that.
