    Pros

    Helping kids. Compared to smaller non profits there are some resources available to get things done but the fundraising team wields dollars as a carrot to other departments.

    Cons

    Bad culture. Management turns a blind eye to real issues. Too money focused. Lots of good employees are unhappy and turnover is high at all levels

    Advice to Management

    Do as I say, not as I do is a recipe for disaster. Focus on successes beyond fundraising
