No opinion of CEO

I worked at AmeriCorps as a contractor (More than a year)

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.

    There is a 1 year commitment.

    Provide more individual/specific training for each project.
