    Cons

    hard to get promoted to the next level
    had to deal with angry people on the phone
    difficult to get donations

    Advice to Management

    don't expect us to get a consistent amount of donations. there are some days when we just can't get anything, and it's not because of how we talk on the phone

  2. Overall a very positive experience.

    Pros

    Organizational Culture
    Staff & Students are world-class
    Location

    Cons

    Decentralized, large organization
    Salaries are often below market
    Budget and state funding cuts

    Advice to Management

    Provide staff with timely and robust communications regarding changes that are pending or planned for the future. I think that management can do a better job of reaching out staff individually and also through the staff affinity groups and other staff groups for input on matters that have a direct impact to them.
