    I have been working at StandWithUs full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Staff are closely bonded and love what they do. You can't work in a field like this without being sold on the cause.

    Cons

    The hours are long and it is a thankless job, but it is rewarding because you are helping Israel. This is not unique to SWU, but a critique of the entire Israel/Jewish non-profit world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As SWU gets bigger there is a need to bring in more professional management and support staff.

    I worked at StandWithUs full-time

    Pros

    Lower level staffs are energetic, passionate and young go-getters. Most jobs offer flexibility and lots of out of office time. Dynamic roles where no one follows a strict list of responsibilities.

    Cons

    Leadership/management is not educated in NPO management and do not have professional experience to replace necessary education. Leadership/management is very emotional. Way too focused on what activities will bring in money instead of what activities will accomplish their mission. Very poor salaries and an expectation of all employees at their disposal 24/7.

    I worked at StandWithUs

    Pros

    The people are really nice and immediately give you important projects to work on. The CEO/Founder is very involved with the employees and everyone makes you fel like an important asset to the team.

    Cons

    Since it is such a small company, there are far too many giant tasks to be completed by a team of four research assistants. The upper management always has new tasks and doesn't really give enough to research assistants to complete other ones.

    Hire people to fund-raise.
    Allow outreach and campus staff to operate on their given tasks, untied to fund-raising performance
