    Pros

    The programs have a deep impact on young lives.

    Very dedicated volunteers who come from every possible industry.

    Expectations are too excessive.

    Senior management makes way too much and many are two faced.

    Treat your employees with more respect.

    Pros

    Part of a terrific organization
    Working to benefit the lives of local children

    JA rides the line between traditional nonprofit and corporate work, and enabled me to grow significantly in my knowledge and understanding of both work worlds.

    Cons

    Divided office - program team and development team don't work as closely as they should.
    Finger pointing between teams.
