    I worked at Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, freedom to impact and create own programs. The network you become a part of is incredible. You have to be able to navigate bureaucracy, have relationships with people at all levels of business.

    Cons

    Some colleagues are incredible, smart and driven, others are mediocre and that is frustrating if you are one of the driven ones. Some departments are resistant to change, others are nimble and striving to push the boundaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers/Supervisors should be trained in supervising. Most people manage up.

    I worked at Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles full-time

    Pros

    The organization does good work and you definitely feel like you are contributing to something larger than yourself.

    Cons

    It is an incredibly difficult place to work as they seem to forget that their employees are members of their community as well. Management is less focused on relationships and more focused on hierarchy, a major roadblock in being an innovative organization that distracts from the work.
