I worked at Working Families full-time for less than a year

Pros

I never felt as though the work I was doing was without merit. Management is knowledgeable, helpful, and more than willing to promote talented newcomers.

Cons

The hours are remarkably inconvenient. I rarely got home before 10 pm, and my schedule almost never synced with my friends'. I developed an inflammation in my feet after a few months of canvassing that was quite painful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expecting everyone to come up through the canvassing ranks is not terribly realistic, though it might seem like it gives everyone a common background. Some valuable workers are simply not good fundraisers.

    I worked at Working Families full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They are a passionate group of people who love what they do.

    Cons

    There are few career opportunities other than becoming a field manager for other canvassers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone who can't fundraise might be great in the office. It's worth reconsidering where people are placed.

    I worked at Working Families full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was introduced to very core of political issues in the city of New York, I was exposed to first hand brainstorming in regards to tacking these issues. And finally, I was there so see all the changes happening first hand.

    Cons

    Due to various, in my opinion, unnecessary hierarchy that appeared to be new to the company, lot of conflicts, confusions and egocentric explosions occurred during my time there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To carefully pick the people next to them, because obviously the goals that the lower staff strives to are not the same as the upper positioned staff goes for.
