    I have been working at United Way

    Pros

    United Way dwarfs it's closest human service competitors in terms of amount raised, the number of professional staff and volunteers, relationships with corporations, and geographic footprint. As such, it has a lot influence over the sector at large. Employees often find themselves elbow to elbow with the best and the brightest corporate leaders.

    Cons

    Senior executives don't challenge the CEO and have a hard time sticking to a plan. Culture of consensus makes it slow/difficult to advance ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -The movie didn't start when you got here.
    -Pretend you have no staff, no budget and no time and try to get your work done. Oh wait, you don't have to pretend.
