    I have been working at UJA-Federation of New York full-time

    Pros

    As an organization, UJA does incredible work. They are the largest local philanthropy in the world, and as such are capable of responding to challenges in ways other nonprofits cannot.

    They promote from within where appropriate. They offer a variety of professional development courses. They have a generous vacation policy and offer other non-financial benefits.

    Cons

    There is a pervasive culture of fear and disrespect. Compensation is below market rate. Performance reviews are down only. Workloads are egregious. The staff does not grow in proportion to the organization's impact in the community. Promotions are a doubling of workload, not a change in responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture and compensate fairly.
