    Great organizational structure, room for growth

    Student Supervisor/Fundraiser (Former Employee)

    ProsRuffaloCODY was a great place to work in college. There are opportunities for advancement, and I learned a lot through my time there.

    ConsI can't think of any glaring issues--pay was perhaps a bit low, but overall the hours were flexible and everyone I worked with was quality.

    ColdCalling at its basic

    Student Caller (Former Employee)
    La Jolla, CA

    ProsGood experience for students.
    Potential to network with alumni.
    Good people work here.

    ConsCold Calling at its worst, unlike a business that sells a product you're trying to sell people on a "donate to feel good" idea.
    The requirement to continue asking for money even if the Alumni contacted is broke/out on the street/etc is in many ways disrespectful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore flexibility in terms of ask levels, and generally try and have the student callers make the Alumni/donors feel valued.

    Challenging, but rewarding and very focused on employee satisfaction.

    Student Fundraiser (Former Employee)
    Chapel Hill, NC

    ProsGreat culture, promotes internally, management and corporate leaders are very accessible, engaging, and genuinely want you to succeed. Job will also give you exceptional people skills and lots of stories to tell your friends. Excellent work/life balance -- understand that you're a student and that school still comes before work.

    ConsNot much control over your location in the event of a promotion, can't continue to work there after graduation, can't work full-time until you get involved in management. Some prospects are very difficult.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A fun, fast paced, and genuinely

    Student Caller (Current Employee)

    ProsThe supervisors make the work environment fun.

    ConsThe work is truly monotonous and repetitive. You simply go through the motions unless you are able to strike up a good conversation with the person you call. Such talks are few and far between.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to engage with the employees more and to filter out people who have adamantly said no.

    Fundraising Caller

    Fundraising Caller (Current Employee)

    ProsVery flexible about time off, never have to work a holiday. Fun environment. No pressure to make quotas but plenty of incentive to do well. Good training.

    ConsCould pay better and offer full time work, isn't much more than a decent second job. Kinda disappointing to fundraise more money in a night than you make in a paycheck.

    Great flexible part time student job

    Student Caller (Former Employee)
    Stanford, CA

    ProsAs a student caller, I was able to pick my own hours and the pay was higher than any other student jobs on campus. This job also helped me overcome my fear of cold calls and better develop my communication skills.

    ConsMy job involved making a lot of cold calls to ask for money, which was stressful. Our shifts were 3.5 hours, I probably could not have worked any longer in one sitting. That said, this is true of any fundraising call center.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe software we used to make calls was really glitchy, and we constantly had to restart old computers

    Student Caller (Former Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsYou develop a lot of great new skills, great hours and flexibility, and fun environment

    ConsHigh turnover rate and strict rules during work

    I work in one of Ruffalo Cody's call centers.

    Student Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Iowa City, IA

    ProsCommission and promotion opportunities are always available. The environment of the call center. There are other supervisor's to collaborate with. Callers have a great time.

    ConsThe only challenge is that shifts are at night, not during the day.

    Good job for students

    Student Caller (Current Employee)

    ProsThe student caller job is a great job for students who need part time work. Very flexible in terms of hours.

    ConsJob can get tedious since almost no one answers the phone. There are days when you could have nobody answer. People also are often upset that they are being called.
