Pros

Social benefit you receive from working for a non-profit organization. Very large national non-profit that is very connected in many communities around the nation. For the most part the co-workers are cordial.

Cons

You work very long days and sometimes weekends for little pay and recognition. There is often a lack of leadership from the national office and you spend a lot of time streamlining processes that already should have been streamlined.

Advice to Management

Shift the focus from the bigger picture to the little things, like the happiness level of the staff and the corps.

    Pros

    Although the stipend is low you will receive money towards your education at the end of your service. It is also very rewarding

    Cons

    The stipend is really low so you have to learn to budget well and the hours are extremely long so it seems like you do way more work for how much you are compensated.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    The feeling that you're helping underprivileged communities and children. While the organization isn't great, their mission is noble and generally well intentioned.

    Cons

    Very frustrating internal politics. Frequently, top level decisions were not well communicated and explained. Often forced to take on projects without a clear purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on communicating decisions. Avoid patronizing attitudes. Consider fairness in decision making process versus consistently focusing on favorites. Working on inclusiveness.
