The ability to care and help for people in need due to natural disasters. Flexability was very helpful with going to school. Support from everyone as it was a family

The reorganization made it diffult as more responsibility was added to the daily job.

    Pros

    Feeling of helping ours in need is very powerful and intrinsically movtivating...great people...dedicated to the mission of supporting and helping others in desperate need.

    To many un-necessary changes being made....change is good and healthy, but too many changes signify problems

    Pros

    You see the impact of your work on a daily basis
    Ability to work with diverse groups
    If you are a young professional, this is a great organization to build skill sets transferable to almost any field, and you will be given a lot of responsibility early off (it pays to be a self-starter in this organization or you will quickly find yourself lost)

    Cons

    Very limited opportunities for long-term career growth
    Promotions are based largely on longevity rather than talent
    Middle Managers need more accountability
    HR department could really use improvement

    Advice to Management

    The changes made in the last three years are promising, but need to be followed up with adequate training for employees and clear vision from leadership as to how these changes impact how we operate in the future. More focus needs to be placed on managers, they are the weakest link in the organization.
