I have been working at AmeriCorps as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

The volunteers I work with and manage are a pleasure and joy to be around.
The children clients in the mentoring program that my host site organization is affiliated with are great to be around.

Cons

Monthly stipend sometimes just isn't enough.

Advice to Management

More funding to increase monthly stipend.
Possibly provide transportation reimbursement for those who qualify (reimburse for half of a monthly Metrocard).

    Pros

    They really try to foster a community feeling and offer a variety of experience. Get the opportunity to make valuable connections in the community.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours. Expectations are very high and not commensurate with experience or compensation. Management also tends to play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Guidance and feedback to ground-level employees needs to be reworked and strengthened.
