    I worked at Jewish National Fund

    Pros

    Great mission
    Great co-workers
    Good hours

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than industry standards
    No room for advancement
    Upper management makes it difficult to keep procedures in place because they are constantly caving on previously set rules
    Employees feel neglected because there's no sense of team here. No holiday parties or fun work functions. No bonuses or incentive to do better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better! Give incentives and bonuses. Even though it's a non-profit the employees need to feel appreciated so that they can continue to thrive.

    I worked at Jewish National Fund full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Important mission
    Passionate donors
    Engaged leadership
    Nice colleagues
    Fair benefits
    Excellent company contribution towards retirement
    Travel to Israel

    Cons

    Total lack of leadership at Senior Management level
    Long hours for relatively low pay compared to industry standards
    Lack of any appreciation or recognition of staff efforts
    Cowtows to certain donors while ignoring others who deserve better
    Questionable ethical behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Managers needs to take a hard look at their own ccurrent management style.
    They need to retrain senior management on how to lead and treatt employees. This will help eliminate low morale and discord amongst employees, make the organization be that much more productive, and reduce the high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Winter Fridays because of Shabbat mean we get out at 3 PM during November-March

    Cons

    No sense of work-life balance; had us come in to the office during hazardous weather conditions; very few growth opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider your employees' health and safety as well as sanity in making decisions about office closings. In addition, learn to hire managers who think before they speak.

    I have been working at Jewish National Fund full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    During lighter times it's much less stressful to be there

    Cons

    Extremely low salaries, upper management does not treat employees well, no advancement opportunities, donors end up running the organization with the attitude of "they are always right" so you need to always be on call - no work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees better, according to their responsibilities so when they work hard and devote time to the position, they feel appreciated.

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO
